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… Expand

ANTIMICROBIAL AND SYNERGISTIC ACTIVITY OF SOME WHOLE AND SELECTIVE EPILOBIUM HIRSUTUM L. (GREAT WILLOWHERB) EXTRACTS TESTED ON STANDARD AND WILD STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS STRAINS
TLDR
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). Expand
Chemical composition and antimicrobial activity of essential oil of wild and cultivated Origanum syriacum plants grown in Sinai, Egypt
TLDR
Both EOs showed good antifungal activity against all fungal strains, while EO from cultivated O. syriacum showed high antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus with an inhibition zone of 32 ± 4.0 mm. Expand
ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY AND COMPOSITION OF ESSENTIAL OILS EXTRACTED FROM SOME PLANTS BELONGING TO FAMILY LAMIACEAE AGAINST SOME MULTIDRUG RESISTANT GRAM NEGATIVE BACTERIA
The aim of this study was to evaluate the antibacterial activity of eight essential oils against some multi-drug resistant Gram negative bacteria (three different isolates of each AcinetobacterExpand
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,Expand
Oregano powder reduces Streptococcus and increases SCFA concentration in a mixed bacterial culture assay of chicken
TLDR
Results suggest that oregano powder at a concentration of 1 % (w/v) may have beneficial influences on mixed microbial communities and SCFA production. Expand
Oregano powder reduces Streptococcus and increases SCFA concentration in a mixed bacterial culture assay
TLDR
Results suggest that oregano powder at a concentration of 1% (w/v) may have beneficial influences on mixed microbial communities and SCFA production. Expand
Prospects for using Origanum Syriacum (L.) as a source of antimicrobial agents
Origanum syriacum (O. syriacum) (L.) belongs to Group B of the genus Origanum from (Lamiaceae), which is rich in essential oils that exhibit antimicrobial efficacy, anti-inflammatory efficacy,Expand
METALLOME OF ORIGANUM VULGARE: THE UNKNOWN SIDE OF A MEDICINAL AND AROMATIC PLANT USED WORLDWIDE
Potential health benefits of aromatic and medicinal plants connected to their content in minerals are usually not evoked by the relevant literature. However, they may be significant for persons usingExpand
Antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory potential therapy for opportunistic microorganisms.
TLDR
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. Expand
In vitro inhibition of human leukemia THP-1 cells by Origanum syriacum L. and Thymus vulgaris L. extracts
TLDR
Thymus vulgaris and O. syriacum are both antileukemic in vitro and represents a potential selective cytostatic and safe target for future anticancer agents’ development. Expand

Abstract The essential oils of Origanum ehrenbergii and O. syriacum collected in Lebanon were analysed by GC and GC–MS and evaluated for their anticholinesterase, NO production inhibitory activities,Expand
Eugenol and thymol, alone or in combination, induce morphological alterations in the envelope of Candida albicans.
TLDR
Certain combinations of the two molecules led to a synergistic effect, which is interesting in the view of potentiating their inhibition of C. albicans colonisation and infectiousness. Expand
MOLECULAR BIOLOGICAL TECHNIQUES USED FOR THE IDENTIFICATION OF CANDIDA SPP.
TLDR
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).

TLDR
Findings suggest that, at least in part, the encountered beneficial effects of essential oils are due to prooxidant effects on the cellular level. Expand

The action of thymol on oral bacteria.
TLDR
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. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships in Origanum spp. based on rDNA sequences and intra-genetic variation of Greek O. vulgare subsp. hirtum revealed by RAPD
TLDR
Analysis of molecular variance revealed that genetic variability is distributed mainly within populations; however, significant Φst values were detected between different geographical localities, supporting noteworthy genetic differentiation among O. hirtum populations. Expand
