Honey and black cumin found to treat H. Pylori patients

(Natural News) Helicobacter pylori – or H. pylori – infections are fairly common, with more than half the world’s population likely walking around with these bacteria in their gut. Nonetheless, they are responsible for the majority of ulcers of the small intestine and stomach, and are becoming increasingly difficult to treat. New “superbug” type antibiotic-resistant strains...

This study sought to evaluate the inhibitory properties of EOCs immobilised on silica microparticles againstH. pylori and to elucidate the mechanism of action of the immobilised antimicrobials. After the preparation and characterisation of the antimicrobial supports, the susceptibility ofH. pylori in the presence of the immobilised compounds was assessed by plate count, fluorescent viability staining and direct viable count –fluorescent in situ hybridisation analyses. The antimicrobial supports were found to inhibitH. pylori growth, and to induce morphological and metabolic alterations to theH. pylori membrane, with ...

CONCLUSION: Due to significant antimicrobial activities tested on bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus and Helicobacter pylori and also wound healing properties, Epi-1 has high potential to be considered as an important candidate for the production of new drugs and treatment of various infections including diabetic foot ulcer and peptic ulcer. Moreover, adjuvant-like properties of Epi-1 make it a suitable candidate for the studies related to an adjuvant. Other attractive properties such as anticancer effects have also been reported for this peptide which encourages further studies on this peptide. PMID: 31138331 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: PDS, CYP2C19 RM genotype and CagA 2a gene of H. pylori infection were the predominant type of FD in Thailand. Metronidazole remain the most common antibiotic resistant strain of H. pylori infection in FD patients. PDS (host factor) was significantly related to CagA2a genotype (bacterial factors) only in patients with intermediate metabolizer. Appropriate dose of proton pump inhibitor (PPI) and correct regimens for H. pylori eradication in FD patients should be consider to improve clinical outcomes. PMID: 31030500 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, we report low-cost, green synthesis of AgNPs using fresh fruit extract of Phyllanthus emblica. The biosynthesized AgNPs was confirmed and characterized by analysis of spectroscopy profile of the UV-visible and Energy dispersive spectrophotometer, Fourier transform infrared, X-ray diffraction pattern, and electron microscopy images examination. UV-visible spectra showed a surface resonance peak of 430 nm corresponding to the formation of AgNPs, and FTIR spectra confirmed the involvement of biological molecules in AgNPs synthesis. In spherical AgNPs, the particle size ranged from 19.8 to 92.8 nm and the averag...

Conclusions In conclusion, this investigation indicated that citral attenuated multiple virulence factors of V. parahaemolyticus, including QS, motility, biofilm formation, the adhesion to Caco-2 cells, and repressed the expression of genes related to flagella (polar and lateral), biofilm and T3SS1 effectors, virulence regulators (luxS, aphA and toxR), and AMP resistance. The results obtained in this work demonstrate the inhibitory effect of citral on virulence factors of V. parahaemolyticus. However, the data reported in this study only demonstrate the anti-virulence effect of citral in vitro. Further research is needed ...

Authors: Khien VV, Thang DM, Hai TM, Duat NQ, Khanh PH, Ha DT, Binh TT, Dung HDQ, Trang TTH, Yamaoka Y Abstract Antibiotic resistance is the most important factor leading to the failure of eradication regimens. This review focuses on the prevalence of Helicobacter pylori primary and secondary resistance to clarithromycin, metronidazole, amoxicillin, levofloxacin, tetracycline, and multidrug in Vietnam. We searched the PubMed, EMBASE, Vietnamese National Knowledge Infrastructure, and Vietnamese Biomedical databases from January 2000 to December 2016. The search terms included the following: H. pylori infection, anti...

In this study, a BER homolog encoded by cj0595c (named nth) in C. jejuni was analyzed for endonuclease III activity and for its role in maintaining genomic stability. It was found that inactivation of nth resulted in elevated frequencies of spontaneous fluoroquinolone-resistant (FQR) and oxidative stress resistant (OXR) mutants, compared with the wild-type strain in C. jejuni. Sequencing analysis of the FQR and OXR mutants revealed that the elevated mutation rates were associated with C → T or G → A transition in gyrA (FQR mutants) or perR (for OXR mutants). In an in vitro assay, a purified recombinant C. jejuni ...
