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… Expand

Antioxidant Potential of an Extract of Calendula officinalis. Flowers in Vitro. and in Vivo.
Abstract An extract of Calendula officinalis. Linn. (Compositae) was evaluated for its antioxidant potential in vitro. and in vivo.. Calendula officinalis. extract was found to scavenge superoxideExpand
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. Expand
Anti-inflammatory activity of tea (Camellia sinensis) root extract.
TLDR
It was found that TRE inhibited the arachidonic acid-induced paw oedema in rats which indicated that TRE produced the anti-inflammatory activity by inhibiting both the cyclooxygenase and lypo oxygengenase pathways of arachidsonic acid metabolism. Expand
Antibacterial activity of epigallocatechin gallate against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of licorice flavonoids against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
TLDR
Nineteen flavonoids isolated from licorice were tested for their antimicrobial activities against methicillin sensitive Staphylococcus aureus, methamphetamineicillin resistant S. aureUS, Micrococcus luteus, Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Expand
Effect of Calendula officinalis Flower Extract on Acute Phase Proteins, Antioxidant Defense Mechanism and Granuloma Formation During Thermal Burns
TLDR
The histopathological analyses of skin tissue give the evidence of the increased healing potential of the extract after burn injury, and indicators of the wound healing such as collagen-hydroxyproline and hexosamine contents were significantly increased in the treated group indicating accelerated wound healing in thetreated animals. Expand
Relationship between antimutagenic activity and major components of various teas.
TLDR
The tea extracts, especially oolong and pouchong teas, markedly inhibited the mutagenicity of 2-amino-3-methylimidazo, 4-dimethyl-5H-pyrido, IQ and Glu-P-1 in Salmonella typhimurium TA100, and showed a significant (P < 0.05) correlation to the contents of catechins and ascorbic acid. Expand
