Candidiasis therapy, especially for candidiasis caused by Candida non-albicans species, is limited by the relatively reduced number of antifungal drugs and the emergence of antifungal tolerance. This study evaluates the anticandidal activity of 41 plant-derived products against Candida species, in both planktonic and biofilm cells. This study also...

Spiranthera odoratissima A. St. Hil. (Rutaceae), a plant grown in midwestern Brazil, has been used for treating rheumatism, infection and abdominal pain. This research aims to investigate chemical constituents of essential oils from S. odoratissima A. St. Hil. leaves and flowers. Essential oils were obtained by hydrodistillation and fully character...

Campomanesia adamantium is a native fruit species of the Cerrado and is used in food and medicines and as bee pasture. The chemical composition of essential oils obtained from plants of the same species have varying constituent proportions due to the influence of extractive factors, environmental, genetic and ontogenetic. This study aimed to identi...

... Thus, given the antifungal drug resistance patterns making treatment of candidiasis difficult, it is essential to search for new antifungals against these opportunistic human pathogens responsible for frequent nosocomial infections. In this context, plant-derived products including EOs have demonstrated promising results in vitro and in vivo against several Candida species and thus, could be considered useful in the development of novel anticandidal drugs [34,35]. ...
... Due to this problem, the development of effective and safe therapies is paramount, which can be used alone or in synergy with traditional drugs, to control candidiasis produced by the different Candida species [101,102]. ...
... The duration of time the plant parts are exposed to the procedure can vary among studies, but nonetheless, evidence suggests that yield is fairly constant at economically viable values (Table 1). For example, with leaves from C. adamantium, yield after two hours of extraction (0.3% w/w) was similar to that after 2 -5 hours, but at longer time intervals, more compounds were extracted (Oliveira et al., 2017). In contrast, with dried leaves of C. adamantium, the yield after four hours 0.5% v/w (Oliveira et al., 2016) was half that after two hours in another study (1%, Sá et al., 2018). ...
