We investigated the in vitro effectiveness of methanolic extract of Salvia staminea and Salvia caespitosa against Acanthamoeba castellanii, as well as their cytotoxicity on corneal cells in vitro. METHODS Extracts were evaluated for their amoebicidal activities using an inverted light microscope. The effect of… CONTINUE READING
