ABSTRACT The antimicrobial property of the ethanol leaf extract of Hymenocardia acida (H. acida) on some opportunistic respiratory pathogens was evaluated in this study. We also assessed the activity of the extract on tracheal mucociliary activity using murine tracheal mucus exudation and mucociliary motility in pigeons as experimental models. Phytochemical screening of the extract was done; and acute toxicity of the extract in mice was carried out using Lorke's method for estimation of its… 
Attenuation of allergic airways inflammation by an extract of Hymenocardia acida
TLDR
It is suggested that HACE exposure induces a marked reduction of cellular component in the BAL fluid, which is only partially lymphocytes dependent.
Cyclopeptide Alkaloids from Hymenocardia acida.
TLDR
Four cyclopeptide alkaloids were isolated from the root bark of Hymenocardia acida by means of semipreparative HPLC with DAD and ESIMS detection and conventional separation methods and showed moderate antiplasmodial activity and cytotoxicity.
ANTIDIARRHOAEL EFFECT OF METHANOL STEM BARK EXTRACT OF HYMENOCARDIA ACIDA (EUPHOBIACEAE) IN LABORATORY ANIMALS By MUS’AB USMAN ABBA DEPARTMENT OF PHARMACOLOGY AND THERAPEUTICS FACULTY OF PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCES AHMADU BELLO UNIVERSITY, ZARIA NIGERIA
TLDR
It is suggested that children under the age of five should be supervised by an adult or preferably two adults to ensure that they are not in a position to endanger others.
Compare the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) versus anterior nair swab culture for detecting nasal carriage of staphylococcus aureus
TLDR
In diabetic patients, frequency of staphylococcus aureus colonization of nasal mucus in patients with poor control of blood sugar is not significantly different than polymerase chain reaction (P CR).

The antimicrobial activities of methanolic extracts of Eucalyptus camaldulensis and Terminalia catappa against some pathogenic microorganisms
TLDR
The results obtained suggest that T. catappa and E. camaldulensis can be used in treating diseases caused by the test organisms.
Antibacterial and Antifungal Activities of Nine Medicinal Plants from Zaire
TLDR
Fractionation of the crude methanol extracts revealed that the bactericidal and fungicidal constituents of the active plants were mainly distributed in their ethyl acetate and aqueous fractions.

Inhibition of adjuvant arthritis in the rat and pinnal inflammation in the mouse by an extract of Hymenocardia acida
TLDR
Hymenocardia acida TUL, a shrub belonging to the family Euphorbiaceae, has been investigated for anti‐inflammatory activity in the rat and mouse and may belong to a class of plant drugs which produce inhibition of phospholipid–arachidonic acid metabolism due to their phenolic constituents.
ANTIULCER ACTIVITY OF AQUEOUS STEMBARK EXTRACT OF HYMENOCARDIA ACIDA TUL (EUPHORBIACEAE)
TLDR
The antiulcer activity of an aqueous extract of Hymenocardia acida was studied in rats and revealed the presence of glycosides, saponins and tannins.
Antimicrobial effects of Finnish plant extracts containing flavonoids and other phenolic compounds.
The effect of thyme extract on beta2-receptors and mucociliary clearance.
TLDR
There is evidence for an influence of a thyme extract on beta (2)-receptors by both binding studies and biological effects and an additional mechanism is presumed because at high extract concentrations isoprenaline-induced relaxation is complete, whereas the displacement of propranolol at beta ( 2)-receptorors is only weak.
Stimulation of airway mucociliary transport and epithelial ciliary motility by the triazolopyridazin derivative TAK-225.
TLDR
It is suggested that TAK-225 enhances airway mucociliary clearance probably through cAMP-mediated stimulation of ciliary motility of airway epithelium.
Clara cell protein as a marker of Clara cell damage and bronchoalveolar blood barrier permeability.
TLDR
Lung injury induces a decrease of the 16 kDa Clara cell protein in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid owing to a reduced production by damaged Clara cells, and an increase in serum protein levels resulting from its enhanced leakage across the bronchoAlveolar/blood barrier barrier.
