The employment of chemical agents in the food industry is raising several concerns by consumers and is leading to an increasing interest in natural food preservatives. Among alternatives, host defense peptides (HDPs) have attracted great interest for their ability to preserve food samples from contamination without altering their quality, taste, an...
Plants are considered a wealthy resource of novel natural drugs effective in the treatment of multidrug-resistant infections. Here, a bioguided purification of Ephedra foeminea extracts was performed to identify bioactive compounds. The determination of antimicrobial properties was achieved by broth microdilution assays to evaluate minimal inhibito...
This study was conducted to evaluate the antimicrobial activity and the genotoxic effects of ethanolic and aqueous extracts of aerial parts of Ephedra foeminea (E. foeminea) plant on Escherichia coli (E. coli ATCC 25922). Antimicrobial activity was investigated using microbroth dilution method, while the genotoxic effect was determined using entero...
Nature has been recognized as a rich source of medicinal compounds for many years. The herb Salvia (Lamiaceae) is distributed all over West Bank different locations. In spite of the presence of several species of Salvia, only S. fruticosa has long been used locally by the native people to relief intestinal pains and diarrhea. Previous literature di...
Based on the importance of herbal plants in medicine, this study was conducted to evaluate the antibacterial efficacy of aqueous, ethanol and methanol extracts of Thymbra spicata, Nepeta curviflora, and Verbascum fruticulosum against two clinical isolates (I and II) of the gram positive methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Agar well...
Based on the importance of herbal plants in medicine as antibacterial agents, this study was conducted to evaluate the antibacterial efficacy of aqueous, ethanol and methanol extracts of Thymbra spicata, Nepeta curviflora, and Verbascum fruticulosum against methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Agar well diffusion method was performed...
The recognition of what nature can offer was based on the historical use of medicinal plants for various diseases. This has led to a global interest in the study of medicinal plants and their traditional uses are increasing the scientific validation of the therapeutic potential of medicinal plants. The herb Salvia is wildly distributed throughout d...
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the antimi-crobial potential of aqueous and ethanol extracts of Thym-bra spicata L. (Lamiaceae), Nepeta curviflora Boiss. and Paronychia argentea Lam. (Caryophyllaceae) against six Gram negative bacteria and one Gram positive bacterium. Agar well diffusion method was adopted to examine the antimicrobial...
