Tables and Topics from this paper

Antibiofilm activity and mode of action of DMSO alone and its combination with afatinib against Gram-negative pathogens
The results demonstrated that both 32% DMSO alone and its combination with 3.2 μg/mL afatinib were effective in killing biofilm cells and reducing biofilm biomass. Expand
The Role of Common Solvents against Pseudomonas aeruginosa-Induced Pathogenicity in a Murine Burn Site Infection Model
The antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects of the combination of DMSO and PEG400 against Pseudomonas aeruginosa in vitro and in vivo are demonstrated in a murine infection model of heightened intestinal permeability to avoid interference with the assay or system tested. Expand
Antifungal activity of dimethyl sulfoxide against Botrytis cinerea and phytotoxicity on tomato and lettuce plants
Abstract For the first time the antifungal activity of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) was evaluated against Botrytis cinerea, that it is one of the phytopathogenic fungi which causes the greatest damageExpand
Bioprospecting for Antibacterial Drugs: a Multidisciplinary Perspective on Natural Product Source Material, Bioassay Selection and Avoidable Pitfalls
This article reviews three key aspects of the bioprospecting literature (source material and in vitro antibacterial and toxicity testing) and presents an integrated multidisciplinary perspective on source material selection, cultivation methods, and technical standards available. Expand
Ferrocenyl chalcone derivatives as possible antimicrobial agents
These novel ferrocenyl chalcone compounds were effective against three types of clinically isolated drug-resistant S. aureus, including an MRSA, and against other non-resistant clinically isolated and laboratory-adapted Gram-positive bacteria. Expand

Dimethylsulfoxide is tested as a urease inhibitor and its physiological effects on S. saprophyticus and P. mirabilis are determined. Expand
Supercritical Carbon Dioxide Antisolvent Fractionation for the Sustainable Concentration of Lavandula luisieri (Rozeira) Riv.- Mart Antimicrobial and Antioxidant Compounds and Comparison with Its Conventional Extracts
The supercritical sustainable process provided L. luisieri compounds, with retention of their antimicrobial and antioxidant activities, in a powder exempt of organic solvents with potential application in the clinical, food or cosmetic fields. Expand
Clofazimine drug susceptibility testing for Mycobacterium tuberculosis: the case of using the right diluent.
The use of DMSO as a solvent for M. tuberculosis DST was optimised using the BACTEC MGIT 960 platform and the impact of water and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) as a final diluent for clofazimine drug testing was assessed. Expand
In vitro antibacterial effects of statins against bacterial pathogens causing skin infections
It is postulated that statins’ antibacterial action may involve disrupting the teichoic acid structures or decreasing the number of alanine residues present on Gram-positive bacterial cell surfaces, which could reduce biofilm formation, diminish bacterial adhesion to environmental surfaces, or impede S. aureus cell division.

Pengaruh Dua Metode Pengeringan Pada Aktivitas Antibakteri Ashitaba (Angelica Keiskei ) Terhadap Streptococcus Mutans: Effect of Two Different Drying Methods on Antibacterial Activity of Ashitaba Againts Streptococcus Mutans
The aim of this study was to determine a change that occurs in total phenolic content (TPC) and antibacterial activity of ashitaba ( Angelica keiskei ) after dried using two different methods : sunExpand
