Extracts of Camellia sinensis Linn. leaves, Glycyrrhiza glabra Linn. roots and rhizome and Calendula officinalis Linn. flowers were screened for their in vitro antimicrobial activity using agar disc diffusion method. The antimicrobial activity of petroleum ether, dichloromethane and methanolic extracts of different parts of these plants were studied against acne causing bacteria, namely Staphylococcus aureus (MTCC 96), Staphylococcus epidermidis (MTCC 2639) and Propionibacterium acnes (MTCC…

The role of triterpenoids in the topical anti-inflammatory activity of Calendula officinalis flowers.

TLDR
The unesterified faradiol, not present in the extract, is the most active of the tested compounds and equals indomethacin in activity, whereas the monools psi-taraxasterol, lupeol, taraxastersol, and beta-amyrin are less active than the free diol.

TLDR
Findings suggest that EGCg could be a useful agent for treating MRSA infection and was stable to various physical conditions including boiling or freezing.

Antibacterial Activity of Coumarins

TLDR
Osthenol showed the most effective antibacterial activity against Gram-positive bacteria with MIC values ranging between 125 and 62.5 μg/ml, suggesting that the prenyl chain of 44 at position 8 and the presence of OH at position 7 of the benzenic ring are required for the antibacterialActivity against these strains.

In vitro activity of kaempferol isolated from the Impatiens balsamina alone and in combination with erythromycin or clindamycin against Propionibacterium acnes.

TLDR
These combinations demonstrated the potential to treat acne by exhibiting a synergic inhibition of P. acnes growth and showed a greater synergic effect than that of erythromycin with kaempferol or quercetin.

Flavonol glycosides from Calendula officinalis flowers.

TLDR
Seven flavonol 3- O-glycosides were isolated from the flowers of CALENDULA OFFICINALIS by paper and thin layer chromatography, UV, (13)C-NMR, and mass spectroscopy and structural determination of quercetin 2 (G)-rhamnosylrutinoside is described for the first time.
