Article
Eugenia stipitata is a Brazilian plant species used in traditional medicine for a wide range of ailments. Considering the biotechnological potential of herbal oils, in this study an essential oil was evaluated for toxicity, antinociceptive, antipyretic, and anti-inflammatory activity in mice model. The essential oil from Eugenia stipitata (EsEO) le...
Article
Myrciaria pilosa is a tree species of the Brazilian Caatinga biome. This paper is the first report on the chemical composition and the antimicrobial and antivirulence activities of essential oil extracted from its leaves. The oil was extracted by hydrodistillation. Chemical composition determined by GC-MS and CG-FID revealed 63 compounds; the sesqu...

Croton blanchetianus Baill, commonly known as “marmeleiro”, is native to the Brazilian Caatinga is traditional used to treat joint pain and gastrointestinal disorders. The aim of the study was identify the chemical constituents by HPLC-DAD and determine the antioxidant activity of the spray-dried extract (SDE) aqueous (AqF) and ethyl acetate (EAF)...
Article
Full-text available
Natural extracts are described in the literature as biomolecules that have, among others, antioxidant and photoprotective properties. In addition, other advantages allow its use, such as low toxicity and high biodegradability. The skin is an organ that is constantly exposed to oxidative stress, including ultraviolet (UV) radiation, air pollutants a...
Article
The present study aimed to evaluate saline extracts from the leaves (LE) and stem (SE) of Portulaca elatior in relation to their phytochemical composition and photoprotective and antioxidant effects, as well as to evaluate the toxicity of the leaf extract. The extracts were characterized for protein concentration and phenol and flavonoid contents,...
Article
Ethnopharmacological relevance Members of the Psidium genus have been suggested in ethnobotanical research for the treatment of various human diseases, and some studies have already proven their popular uses through research, such as Psidium glaziovianum, which is found in Brazil's northeast and southeast regions and has antinociceptive and anti-in...
Article
Ethnopharmacological relevance Eugenia gracillima is widely used by the population in the manufacture of pulps and jellies, with popular reports of its use in the treatment of infections in the urinary system, respiratory and dermatological problems. A previous study reports that EO from E. gracillima leaves proved to be a promising antioxidant age...
Article
Full-text available
Eugenia pohliana DC.(Myrtaceae) is used in folk medicine by communities in Brazil. However, there are no reports on its biological activity. This is the first study to identify the components of E. pohliana essential oil (EpEO) and evaluate their antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory activities in an in vivo model at doses of 25, 50, and 100 mg/kg....
Article
Full-text available
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the antibacterial and antivirulence activities of an essential oil from E. stipitata (EsEO) leaves against Staphylococcus aureus as well as its mechanism of action. The determination of antibacterial activity was based on the MIC and MBC. The antibacterial mechanism was explored with growth curve, synergist...
Article
The purpose of this study was to analyse the influence of seasonal variation on the chemical composition and antimicrobial, antioxidant and cytotoxicity activities of the essential oil (EO) extracted from the leaves of Eugenia pohliana. Chemical characterisation of the samples‐ by gas chromatography‐mass spectrometry‐ found 35 and 38 components for...
Article
Ethnopharmacological relevance: Eugenia uniflora (Myrtaceae) is a species native to Brazil and has a traditional use in the treatment of inflammation. Aim of the study: To evaluate the anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive effects, and the involvement of opioid receptors in the antinociceptive activity of extract and fractions from Eugenia unifl...
Article
Full-text available
Plants of the genus Psidium have been employed in “in natura” consumption and agroindustry, and owing to the diversity of phytochemicals, the development of new pharmaceutical forms has received remarkable research interest. In this study, the essential oil obtained from Psidium glaziovianum (PgEO) leaves were evaluated antinociceptive and anti-inf...
Article
Full-text available
The rhizome of Microgramma vacciniifolia contains a lectin (carbohydrate-binding protein) called MvRL. Studies demonstrated that a MvRL-rich fraction did not show in vivo genotoxicity and acute toxicity in mice. This study aimed to evaluate the MvRL-rich fraction from M. vacciniifolia rhizome for antibacterial activity in vitro and in vivo as well...
Article
The ethanolic extract from Croton blanchetianus leaves has been shown to have antinociceptive activity in mice. Here, we investigated the antinociceptive activity of an ethyl acetate fraction (EAF) from this extract in mice and the possible pathways involved in the analgesic effect. Adverse effects on behavior and motor coordination were also evalu...
Article
In this study, the toxicity and antinociceptive effects of the ethanolic extract of Croton blanchetianus leaves were investigated in mice. Phytochemical analysis was performed by thin layer chromatography (TLC) and high–performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) revealed the presence of alkaloids, reducing sugars, cinnamic derivatives, flavonoids, sa...

This work evaluated the antioxidant properties and in vivo antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory effects of extracts obtained from fruit peels of Myrciaria floribunda (H. West ex Willd.) O. Berg (Myrtaceae). This plant is popularly known in Brazil as Cambuí or camboim. Different extracts were submitted to comparative analysis to determine the conte...
