Antimicrobial Activity of Rubia cordifolia: Methods to Determine Antimicrobial Activity

Conclusion: Rubia cordifolia root extracts showed antimicrobial effects. Using pour plate technique in agar well diffusion method is more sensitive in showing antimicrobial effectiveness than using spreading technique.

All the new complexes (1a–4a) have been characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, UV–visible spectroscopy and elemental analysis. The complex 2a was further characterized by X-Ray crystallography. And also, the magnetic susceptibility measurement of this comp...

MaugerAbstractA 45-year-old female with history of contact lens wear presented with a persistent corneal ulcer that was unresponsive to topical moxifloxacin. The patient’s exam was concerning for fungal keratitis. Cultures were obtained, and the patient was started on fortified amphotericin B drops and oral voriconazole. The cultures identified Candida dubliniensis as the causative organism. The patient’s exam worsened despite treatment, and the decision was made for surgery. At the time of...

Nayak, Krishna MoorthyAbstractMost plants, especially the leaves are considered as the hostile environment for microbial growth. The phylloplane plays an important role in the plant-microbe interactions in leaf surface for the diverse communities’ of microflora. These fungi will be a good source for analyzing metal-microbes interaction and synthesizing nanoparticles. Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were synthesized from Ag+ ions by treating with different extracts of the phylloplane fungus, As...

l B Abstract Mutations in the gene JAGN1 were recently discovered in patients with severe congenital neutropenia (SCN). Neutrophils release neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) consisting of decondensed chromatin decorated with various granular proteins such as neutrophil elastase and myeloperoxidase (MPO) to combat microbial infections. However, whether JAGN1 is required for the formation or function of NETs is not known. Here, we analyzed primary neutrophils from a patient with homozygous JAGN1 mutations with respect to phorbol myristate acetate (PMA)-induced NET formation. NET release was observed, but there a...

ABSTRACT Objective: This research study aimed at evaluating the inhibitory activity of Matricaria recutira (chamomile) hydroalcoholic extract on Candida albicans and Enterobacter cloacae biofilms. Methods: C. albicans and E. cloacae biofilms with thirty-hour formation were submitted, for five minutes, to 100, 200 and 300 mg / mL of M. recutita hydroalcoholic extract, chlorhexidine digluconate 0.12% (Periogard ® - inhibition control) or sterile distilled water (growth control). Subsequently, they were washed and divided into two groups to determine the microbial viability: G/UFC - counting of colony forming units (cfu) ...

We describe the case of a 45-year-old man admitted for a traumatic fall and subsequently treated with VP shunt placement for obstructive hydrocephalus secondary to a cerebellar contusion and intraventricular hemorrhage. Eight months following VP shunt placement, the patient presented with a two-month history of clear fluid leakage through a dehiscent surgical abdominal wound overlying the distal VP shunt.
