Nigerian propolis: chemical composition, antioxidant activity and α-amylase and α-glucosidase inhibition.

Nigerian propolis: chemical composition, antioxidant activity and α-amylase and α-glucosidase inhibition. Nat Prod Res. 2019 Nov 08;:1-5 Authors: Alaribe CS, Esposito T, Sansone F, Sunday A, Pagano I, Piccinelli AL, Celano R, Cuesta Rubio O, Coker HA, Nabavi SM, Rastrelli L, Picerno P Abstract Propolis is an attractive natural ingredient to design health products due to its pharmacological effects. Our chemical investigation of a polar extract of Nigerian propolis (NP) led the isolation and identification of five isoflavonoids (1-4, 6), one diarylpropane (5) and one prenylated flavanone (7) by the combination of chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques. Compounds 1, 4 and 7 were found to be the main markers in NP (8.0, 5.0 and 4.0 mg/g of dry extract, respectively). Moreover, NP and its phenolic constituents exhibited in vitro free radical scavenging activity together with a promising antidiabetic effect against α-amylase and α-glucosidase enzymes. Finally, NP showed also a moderate inhibition of Helicobacter pylori growth. These results suggested that NP could be a good candidate in nutraceuticals and food products.

In this study H. pylori CagL gene was cloned in pAMJ2008 vector and transferred to Lactococcus lactis MG1363 as the host for CagL antigen production. This recombinant bacterium was orally subjected to mice, and the immune response to CagL was evaluated by ELISA. Intracellular expression of CagL protein was confirmed by Western blot analysis. Mucosal immunization of mice with the recombinant L. lactis significantly stimulated CagL-Specific antibodies: IgA, IgG, cytokine IL-17 and IN-γ. Moreover, the specific anti-CagL IgA response was detected in the feces of immunized mice. These results indicate that CagL of H. pylo...

Authors: Puderecki M, Wronecki L, Cięszczyk K, Szumiło J Abstract Organic basis of gastrointestinal symptoms is in the scope of many specialists. In this article lymphocytic gastritis, relatively newly described and not widely-known entity is presented. The lesion is characterized by presence of numerous mature lymphocytes in the surface and foveolar epithelium, as well as lymphocytic infiltration of the lamina propria. According to the definition at least 25 lymphocytes per 100 gastric epithelial cells is now required for the diagnosis. Literature found in wide r...

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 ...

Alaska Native (AN) people experience higher incidence of, and mortality from, gastric cancer compared to other U.S. populations1, 2. Compared to the general U.S. population, gastric cancer in AN people occurs at a younger age, is diagnosed at later stages, is more evenly distributed between the sexes, and is more frequently signet-ring or diffuse histology3. It is known that the prevalence of Helicobacter pylori (Hp) infection, a risk factor for gastric cancer, is high in AN people4; however, high antimicrobial resistance combined with high reinfection rates in Alaska make treatment at the population level complex5.
