In this study, we applied various assays to reveal new activities of phenylcyanomethylenequinone oxime-4-(hydroxyimino) cyclohexa-2,5-dien-1-ylidene](phenyl)ethanenitrile (4-AN) for potential anti-microbial applications. These assays demonstrated (a) the antimicrobial effect on bacterial and fungal cultures, (b) the effect on the in vitro activity of the kinase CK2, (c) toxicity towards human erythrocytes, the Caco-2 cancer cell line, and embryonic development of Zebrafish. We demonstrated the activity of 4-AN against selected bacteria and Candida spp. The MIC ranging from 4 µg/ml to 125 µg/ml proved effect...

Publication date: Available online 12 December 2017 Source:Journal of Saudi Chemical Society Author(s): Jeshma Kovvuri, Burri Nagaraju, C. Ganesh Kumar, K. Sirisha, Ch. Chandrasekhar, Abdullah Alarifi, Ahmed Kamal Catalyst-free one-pot C-N and C-C bond formation is described as a simple and ecofriendly method for the synthesis of pyrazole-aniline linked coumarin derivatives. Employing this protocol, a series of derivatives were synthesized in good to excellent yields and tested against different bacterial strains as well as fungal strains. Most of the compounds exhibited potential antimicrobial activity against both Gram-...

Abstract These are the days when one would go online first seeking home remedies before seeing a doctor. Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is one such popular yet scientifically under-validated remedy. Our results prove the unequivocal antimicrobial activity of ACV to be true at full strength concentrations. However, the activity cannot be generalised because although strong antibacterial activity was observed at 25% concentrations, in terms of antifungal activity, yeasts, especially Candida were found to be less susceptible. The antimicrobial/antioxidant properties are ascertained to the total phenolic contents of ACV, a...

Conclusion Results revealed that histatin-5 is able to revert MDR phenotype and may be considered a potential alternative MDR inhibitor. Since Pdr5p is homologous to Candida albicans CaCdr1p and CaCdr2p, data obtained might be extrapolated to these transporters, inferring that associating fluconazole and histatin-5 may be a useful tool to circumvent failure treatments of infections caused by Candida MDR strains.

Conclusion Les onychomycoses à Candida sont relativement fréquentes à Abidjan et dominées sur le plan étiologique par C. albicans. La confirmation mycologique de l’étiologie fongique d’une onychopathie et une bonne hygiène des ongles permettront une meilleure prise en charge. Objective This study aims to study the clinical and mycological characteristics of onychomycosis due to Candida in mycology unit of Institut Pasteur of Côte d’Ivoire. Patients and methods This is a retrospective study which was carried out on patients from 1990 to 2016 for m...
