Caryophyllene oxide, an oxygenated terpenoid, well known as preservative in food, drugs and cosmetics, has been tested in vitro as an antifungal against dermatophytes. [] Key Method Three protocols were utilized: pre-treatment. simultaneous treatment and post-treatment. Among these, the post-treatment method was the best to simulate antifungal therapy. as it permitted testing and comparing the efficiency of different antifungal drugs.
Essential Oils of Lamiaceae Family Plants as Antifungals
TLDR
This review presents antifungal activities of essential oils from 72 Lamiaceae plants, which have good activity against fungi and some species of the genera Clinopodium, Lavandula, Mentha, Thymbra, and Thymus.
Antifungal Activity of Nanocapsule Suspensions Containing Tea Tree Oil on the Growth of Trichophyton rubrum
TLDR
Nail infection models demonstrated the ability of the formulations to reduce T. rubrum growth, with the inclusion of oil in nanocapsules being most efficient.
Synergistic Effect of Lupenone and Caryophyllene Oxide against Trypanosoma cruzi
TLDR
In vitro trypanocidal activity of a 1 : 4 mixture of lupenone and caryophyllene oxide confirmed a synergistic effect of the terpenoids against epimastigotes forms of T. cruzi and its capacity to reduce the number of amastigote nests in cardiac tissue and skeletal muscle of infected mice.
