A HPLC method has been developed which permits the quantification of methyl paraben, benzethonium chloride and triclosan in various samples of grapefruit seed extract (GSE). The best results were obtained with a Phenomenex Gemini C18 column using gradient mobile phase of water (0.1% acetic acid) and acetonitrile (0.1% acetic acid) with a flow rate of 1.0 mL per minute. The detection wavelength was 254 nm for methyl paraben, and 275 nm for benzethonium chloride and triclosan. The main synthetic… 

Electrode modified with graphene quantum dots supported in chitosan for electrochemical methods and non-linear deconvolution of spectra for spectrometric methods: approaches for simultaneous determination of triclosan and methylparaben

TLDR
Electrochemical method employing an electrode modified with graphene quantum dots supported in chitosan and spectrometric method applying a non-linear deconvolution of spectrum suggest that the methods can be applied for individual or simultaneous determination of these species.

Grapefruit Seed Extract as a Natural Food Antimicrobial: a Review

In agreement with the recent trend of consumers’ demand for natural antimicrobial products, the importance of using natural compounds in food is increasing. Among numerous natural compounds,

Polyphenol-Rich Larix decidua Bark Extract with Antimicrobial Activity against Respiratory-Tract Pathogens: A Novel Bioactive Ingredient with Potential Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical Applications

TLDR
Results suggest that LBE may represent a natural and sustainable source of active compounds with antibacterial activity for pharmaceutical and nutraceutical applications.

Evaluation of Natural and Botanical Medicines for Activity Against Growing and Non-growing Forms of B. burgdorferi

TLDR
This study investigated the antimicrobial effects of 12 commonly used botanical medicines and three other natural antimicrobial agents for potential anti-Borrelia burgdorferi activity in vitro and in vivo and found 7 natural product extracts at 1% were found to have good activity against the stationary phase B. burgdorffi culture.

Evaluation of Natural and Botanical Medicines for Activity Against Growing and Non-growing Forms of B. burgdorferi

TLDR
This study investigated the antimicrobial effects of 12 commonly used botanical medicines and 3 other natural antimicrobial agents for potential anti-Borrelia burgdorferi activity in vitro and in vivo and found that current Lyme antibiotics and other active herbs including Polygonum cuspidatum, Artemesia annua, Juglans nigra and Uncaria tomentosa could not eradicate B. burgdorFERi.

Protective effects of gomisin A isolated from Schisandra chinensis against CCl(4)-induced hepatic and renal injury.

TLDR
The results suggest that gomisin A induces marked protective effects against hepatic and renal injury induced by CCl(4) exposure through differential regulation of the MAPK signal transduction pathway.

Gomisin N isolated from Schisandra chinensis significantly induces anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic effects in hepatic carcinoma.

TLDR
Results suggest that gomisin N is an anti-cancer drug candidate capable of inhibiting the proliferation and inducing the apoptosis of human hepatic carcinomas.

TLDR
Preliminary evidence suggests the possibility that repletion of glutathione levels (with oral supplementation of N-acetylcysteine), and enhancement of glutATHione transferase function (using sulforaphanes), might be therapeutic options for countering type 1 hypersensitivity disorders caused by environmental chemicals.
