The study evaluated the antimicrobial activity of Thymus vulgaris essential oil (29.74% thymol) and Origanum syriacum essential oil (66.64% carvacrol) on standard and human wild type strains of Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Candida albicans prelevated from the oral cavity. Some possible adverse effects were determined by hematological and blood biochemical routine tests performed on experience animals after the oral treatment with essential oils. The study is part of the…

ANTIMICROBIAL AND SYNERGISTIC ACTIVITY OF SOME WHOLE AND SELECTIVE EPILOBIUM HIRSUTUM L. (GREAT WILLOWHERB) EXTRACTS TESTED ON STANDARD AND WILD STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS STRAINS

There were evidenced stimulatory effects between great willowherb extracts and Ampicillin; statistically significant differences were also obtained for the combination with Gentamicin and Ciprofloxacin, in these cases being recorded smaller inhibition zones compared to those of the antibiotics used alone (inhibitory effects).

ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY AND COMPOSITION OF ESSENTIAL OILS EXTRACTED FROM SOME PLANTS BELONGING TO FAMILY LAMIACEAE AGAINST SOME MULTIDRUG RESISTANT GRAM NEGATIVE BACTERIA

The study concluded that, some essential oils of Egyptian medicinal plants belonging to family Lamiaceae can be used to treat infections caused by multi-drug resistant gram negative bacteria.

Burdock (Arctium lappa) Leaf Extracts Increase the In Vitro Antimicrobial Efficacy of Common Antibiotics on Gram-positive and Gram-negative Bacteria

Abstract This work aimed to study the potential effects of four Arctii folium extracts, 5 mg gallic [GAE] acid equivalents per 1 mL sample, on six antibiotics (Ampicillin/AM, Tetracycline/TE,

Epilobi Hirsuti Herba Extracts Influence the In Vitro Activity of Common Antibiotics on Standard Bacteria

EHE’s own antimicrobial properties, but also their capacity to influence the antimicrobial potency of some common antibiotics are demonstrated, which could be useful for the area of herbal medicines and as potential candidates in managing microbial resistance.

Oregano powder reduces Streptococcus and increases SCFA concentration in a mixed bacterial culture assay of chicken

Results suggest that oregano powder at a concentration of 1 % (w/v) may have beneficial influences on mixed microbial communities and SCFA production.

Prospects for using Origanum Syriacum (L.) as a source of antimicrobial agents

The results of studies on antimicrobial efficacy of a plant O. syriacum in the PubMed, Google Scholar, Elsevier over the past 15 years using keywords are analyzed to cast light on mechanism of essential oil antimicrobial action.

METALLOME OF ORIGANUM VULGARE: THE UNKNOWN SIDE OF A MEDICINAL AND AROMATIC PLANT USED WORLDWIDE

An extensive investigation of metal and metalloid elements present in different populations of wild-growing Origanum vulgare samples from Romania found forty-nine elements were identified and quantified through inductively coupled plasma - mass spectrometry (ICP-MS).

Antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory potential therapy for opportunistic microorganisms.

The idea that a diet rich in plants and herbs may contribute to the reduction of inflammation and microbial growth and may also be preventive against various infections, including those related to the oral cavity, is supported.

MOLECULAR BIOLOGICAL TECHNIQUES USED FOR THE IDENTIFICATION OF CANDIDA SPP.

Yeast clinical isolates were obtained from 50 independent patients admitted to the hospital during the year 2008 and yeast identification was based on gene restriction profiles ARNr 5.8S by PCR-RFLP (Polymerase Chain Reaction-Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism) and on random amplification profiles, RAPD (Random Amplification of Polymorphic DNA).

PHENOTYPIC AND GENOTYPIC CHARACTERIZATION OF ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE PATTERNS IN ACINETOBACTER BAUMANNII STRAINS ISOLATED IN A ROMANIAN HOSPITAL

A total of 633 strains of Acinetobacter baumannii were isolated from respiratory secretions (19%), blood (3.1%), urine (3.7%) and wounds secretions (4.3%). A. baumannii exhibited high resistance

The action of thymol on oral bacteria.

Correlations between leakage-inducing concentrations of thymol and minimal inhibitory concentrations and minimal bactericidal concentrations suggest that membrane perforation is a principal mode of action of this substance.
