Investigation on total phenolic content, antibacterial, and antioxidant activity of ethanolic extract of Helichrysum leucocephalum Boiss
Because of undesirable side effects of synthetic antioxidants and antibiotics, there is considerable interest in the use of phytomedicines. For this purpose, the present study evaluated total
Composition, Antioxidant Potential, and Antimicrobial Activity of Helichrysum plicatum DC. Various Extracts
TLDR
All extracts exhibited high antifungal and notable antibacterial activities compared to control substances, with DCME being the most potent.
Antimicrobial, Antioxidant, and Anti-Inflammatory Activities of Essential Oils from Five Selected Herbs
TLDR
The results of this study indicated that, except for the essential oil of P. fragrans, all of the essential oils demonstrated obvious antimicrobial activity against a broad range of microorganisms.
Evaluation of Antigonorrhea Activity and Cytotoxicity of Helichrysum caespititium (DC) Harv. Whole Plant Extracts
TLDR
The results justify the usage of H. caespititium in the traditional medicine against gonorrhea infections and the antigonorrhea activity and cytotoxicity of the whole plant were investigated.
Volatilome Analyses and In Vitro Antimicrobial Activity of the Essential Oils from Five South African Helichrysum Species
TLDR
Findings open new perspectives for the exploitation of these natural compounds for application in cosmetics and pharmaceutics.
ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF ETHANOLIC EXTRACTS FROM Agrimonia eupatoria L. AND Epilobium hirsutum L. HERBA
TLDR
The antibacterial activity tests showed better results against the Gram positive bacteria such as Staphylococcus epidermidis, especially in the case of great willowherb (Epilobium hirsutum L.).
Composition, radical scavenging and antifungal activities of essential oils from 3 Helichrysum species growing in Cameroon against Penicillium oxalicum a yam rot fungi.
TLDR
The radical scavenging activities of essential oils from the leaves of these Helichrysum species showed significant antifungal activities against Penicillium oxalicum, with percent inhibition at 5 mg/ml ranging from 54.7 to 100%.
