Introduction: Streptococcus pyogenes is a gram positive pathogenic bacterium which cause a variety of diseases including streptococcal pharyngitis, impetigo and rheumatic heart disease, depending on which tissue it infects. Many Terminalia spp. have documented therapeutic properties as general antiseptics, inhibiting the growth of a wide variety of bacterial species. Methods: Solvent extracts were prepared using Indian Terminalia spp. with documented ethnobotanical usage to treat bacterial…

Investigating the Pharmacognostic Potential of Indian Terminalia Spp. in the Treatment and Prevention of Yersiniosis
TLDR
The lack of toxicity and the potent growth inhibitory bioactivity of the T. chebula extracts against Y. enterocolitica indicates their potential as medicinal agents in the treatment and prevention of yersiniosis.
Comparison of the antibacterial activity of Australian Terminalia spp. extracts against Klebsiella pneumoniae: a potential treatment for ankylosing spondylitis.
Traditional medicines prepared using Terminalia species have been used globally to treat inflammation and pathogenic infections. Recent studies have demonstrated that multiple Asian and African
Natural Methods for Preventing Fish Spoilage Using Indian Terminalia spp. Extracts: Growth Inhibition of Shewanella spp.
TLDR
The potent growth inhibitory activity of the methanolic and ethyl acetate T. chebula fruit extracts and the lack of toxicity of these extracts indicates their suitability for use as natural fish preservatives.
Growth inhibitory properties of Backhousia myrtifolia Hook. & Harv. and Syzygium anisatum (Vickery) Craven & Biffen extracts against a panel of pathogenic bacteria
TLDR
The lack of toxicity of the B. myrtifolia and S. anisatum extracts and their growth inhibitory bioactivity against a panel of pathogenic bacteria partially validate Australian Aboriginal usage of these species as antiseptic agent and indicate their potential in the development of antiseptic agents.
Growth inhibitory properties of extracts prepared from selected Leptospermum and Melaleuca species against a panel of pathogenic bacteria
TLDR
The lack of toxicity of the methanolic L. longifolium, L. petersonii and M. alternifolia leaf extracts and their growth inhibitory bioactivity against a panel of pathogenic bacteria partially validate Australian Aboriginal usage of these species as antiseptic agents and indicate their potential in the development of antiseptic agents.
Preliminary Evaluations of the Antibacterial Activity of Tasmannia lanceolata against Bacillus anthracis: Natural Resource Probing to Prevent Anthrax
TLDR
Tasmannia lanceolata berry and leaf extracts are not only non-toxicity, but also had moderate growth inhibitory bioactivity against B. anthracis, highlighting their potential in the treatment of anthrax.
The Growth Inhibitory Activity of Tasmannia lanceolata (Poir.) A.C. Sm against the Food-poisoning Pathogen Yersinia enterocolitica
TLDR
The non-toxicity of the T. lanceolata berry and leaf extracts, combined with the potent inhibitory bioactivity observed against Y. enterocolitica, demonstrates their potential as therapeutic agents in the prevention and treatment of yersiniosis.
Inhibition of the Growth of a Panel of Pathogenic Bacteria by Kunzea flavescens C.T. White and W.D. Francis Solvent Extractions
TLDR
The lack of toxicity of the K. flavescens leaf extracts and their growth inhibitory bioactivity against a panel of pathogenic bacteria indicate their potential in the development of novel antiseptic agents.
Piper novae-hollandiae Miq. Leaf Extracts Lack Antibacterial activity and are Non-Toxic in vitro
TLDR
Despite the close taxonomic relationship with several bioactive Piper spp.

Growth Inhibitory Activity of Indian Terminalia spp. against the Zoonotic Bacterium Bacillus anthracis
TLDR
The potent growth inhibitory activity of the methanolic T. chebula fruit extract against B. anthracis indicates its potential in the treatment and prevention of anthrax, and due to its low toxicity, its use may extend to all forms of the disease (cutaneous, inhalation or gastrointestinal).

A Comparison of the Antimicrobial Activity and Toxicity of Six Combretum and Two Terminalia Species from Southern Africa
TLDR
The lack of toxicity of these extracts and their inhibitory bioactivity against a panel of bacteria and fungi indicate their potential as medicinal agents and partially validate their usage in multiple South African traditional medicinal systems.
An examination of the antibacterial, antifungal, anti-Giardial and anticancer properties of Kigelia africana fruit extracts
TLDR
Traditional African therapeutic usage of K. africana in the treatment of several bacterial, fungal and protozoal illnesses and some cancers is validated, and its use in treating a variety of diseases is validated.
Antimicrobial activity of Terminalia arjuna Wight & Arn.: an ethnomedicinal plant against pathogens causing ear infection.
TLDR
Organic extract obtained from the T. arjuna bark and leaves may be used to treat the bacterial ear pathogens especially S. aureus, which has shown greater inhibition zones than the herbal drops, however, more detailed studies are needed as in vivo testing and pharmacokinetics properties for their therapeutic utility in treating ear infections.
The diversity of antibacterial compounds of Terminalia species (Combretaceae).
TLDR
Hexane and dichloromethane extracts have shown more antibacterial components than the acetone extract indicating the non-polar character of the antibacterial compounds.
The potential of selected South African plants with anti-Klebsiella activity for the treatment and prevention of Ankylosing spondylitis
TLDR
Plant extracts from 13 South African plant species traditionally used for the treatment of inflam mation were investigated for their ability to control a microbial trigger for ankylosing spondylitis, indicating their potential for both preventing the onset of ankyLosing spONDylitis and minimising its symptoms once the disease is established.
Tannin components and inhibitory activity of Kakadu plum leaf extracts against microbial triggers of autoimmune inflammatory diseases
Introduction: Autoimmune inflammatory diseases can be triggered by specific bacteria in susceptible individuals. Terminalia ferdinandiana (Kakadu plum) has documented therapeutic properties as a
Growth-inhibiting activity of active component isolated from Terminalia chebula fruits against intestinal bacteria.
TLDR
The growth-inhibitory activity of materials derived from the fruit of Terminalia chebula was evaluated against six intestinal bacteria by means of an impregnated paper disk agar diffusion method and may be an indication of at least one of the pharmacological properties of T.Chebula fruits.
