Background A new shampoo with anti-Malassezia properties obtained from various plants is required to provide seborrheic dermatitis patients with a wider range of treatment options. Objective The aim of this study was to obtain in vitro susceptibility profiles of Malassezia restricta and M. globosa, the most important pathogenic organisms in the development of seborrheic dermatitis, to the plant extracts used in commercial anti-dandruff shampoos. Methods Minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs…

Antifungal activity of plant extracts against Arthrinium sacchari and Chaetomium funicola.
Various plant extracts were examined for antifungal activity with the objective of improving the commercial sterility of aseptically filled tea beverage products in PET bottles and a licorice preparation made from the commercially available oil-based extract of G. glabra to tea beverages was suggested.
In vitro activity of phytosphingosines against Malassezia furfur and Candida albicans.
The aim of this study was to investigate the in vitro activity of different phytosphingosine preparations against Malassezia furfur, and, in comparison, against the common facultative pathogenic yeast Candida albicans.
Antifungal Activities of Tacrolimus and Azole Agents against the Eleven Currently Accepted Malassezia Species
The antifungal activities of a therapeutic agent for AD, tacrolimus, and the azole agents itraconazole and ketoconazole against Malassezia species in vitro provide the basis for testing these agents in future clinical trials to reduce the number of MalasseZia cells colonizing the skin surface in patients with AD.
Clinical Evaluation of a New-Formula Shampoo for Scalp Seborrheic Dermatitis Containing Extract of Rosa centifolia Petals and Epigallocatechin Gallate: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Controlled Study
Background Scalp seborrheic dermatitis is a chronic type of inflammatory dermatosis that is associated with sebum secretion and proliferation of Malassezia species. Ketoconazole or zinc-pyrithione
Molecular analysis of Malassezia microflora in seborrheic dermatitis patients: comparison with other diseases and healthy subjects.
The results indicate that certain strains of M. restricta occur in the lesional skin of SD patients, and could be distinguished from those collected from HSs, but not from those colleted from AD patients.
Isolation and identification of Malassezia species from Chinese and Korean patients with seborrheic dermatitis and in vitro studies on their bioactivity on sebaceous lipids and IL‐8 production
The study suggests a possible role of these organisms in the pathogenesis of SD/D and investigates the distribution of Malassezia yeast in 120 Chinese and Korean patients with scalp seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff using ITS1 and ITS2 polymerase chain reaction‐restriction fragment length polymorphism.
In vitro antifungal activity of topical and systemic antifungal drugs against Malassezia species
The differences observed in the antifungals activity and interspecies variability demonstrated the importance to studying the susceptibility profile of each species to obtain reliable information for defining an effective treatment regimen.
Distribution of malassezia species on the scalp in korean seborrheic dermatitis patients.
M. restricta is considered to be the most important Malassezia species in Korean seborrheic dermatitis patients, and M. globosa in the normal controls.
In vitro anti‐Malassezia activity and potential use in anti‐dandruff formulation of Asparagus racemosus
The study was conducted to evaluate anti‐fungal activities of the extracts obtained from the roots of Asparagus racemosus Willd against Malassezia furfur and M. globosa.
Clinical efficacies of shampoos containing ciclopirox olamine (1.5%) and ketoconazole (2.0%) in the treatment of seborrhoeic dermatitis
CPO shampoo was superior to placebo and at least as effective as ketoconazole shampoo in treating scalp seborrhoeic dermatitis and assessments of itching and scaling were also significantly in favour of the CPO shampoo over placebo at the end of treatment.
