Posted on March 4, 2021Categories PharmaceuticalTags , , , , , ,   Leave a comment on Promising Antimicrobial Activities of Malpighiaceae Family and Its Outcome for Oral Cavity Infectious Diseases

Current medical therapies for oral infectious diseases are limited by the specificity and tolerance of pathogenic bacteria, fungi, and viruses, necessitating the production of novel substances. Plants have long been a source of active chemical agents; however, in the case of Malpighiaceae, a flowering plant family with secondary metabolites that have shown a range of pharmacological effects with promising results, further research is still needed. Because of the importance of oral infections to global human health and their effect on … Continue reading “Promising Antimicrobial Activities of Malpighiaceae Family and Its Outcome for Oral Cavity Infectious Diseases”

New aspects of safety mechanisms for the human mucosal cavity are under consideration. It has been proposed that mucosal cavities act as mucosal organs on the basis of their own data. Progress in developing thoughts about the identification and binding of glycoconjugates by mucosal organs is reflected. New mucosal organ players were suggested and identified. Probiotic/symbiotic lectins and probiotic/symbiotic microorganisms were included in the system and glycoconjugates were synthetic polymeric multi-valence patterns. Lectins and glycoconjugates (mucin-like or imitating, antigens, polysaccharides … Continue reading “Mucosal Open Cavities: Organs Supported by Specific Microbiocenoses Increasing Human Resistance”

Antimicrobial Studies of the Transition Metal Complexes of the African Black Soap from Elaeis guineensis (Palm Kernel Oil) and Theobroma cacao (Cocoa)

An indigenous organic soap produced by saponification is African black soap. The laboratory-controlled preparation was carried out using reactive palm kernel oil and cocoa pod ash filtrate. After its reaction with certain transition metal salts, which were Cu(CH3COO)2.H2O, Pb(CH3COO)2.3H2O and FeCl3, the elucidation of its capacity to act as a ligand was carried out. 3:1 was the metal:ligand ratio (M:L). These reactions were performed in an aqueous medium to yield the corresponding complexes [Pb(C11H23COO-K+)2(C11H23COO-)2].9H2O, [Cu(BL)4(C11H23COO-)2].4H2O and [Fe(BL)2(C11H23COO-)Cl2] with yields of … Continue reading “Antimicrobial Studies of the Transition Metal Complexes of the African Black Soap from Elaeis guineensis (Palm Kernel Oil) and Theobroma cacao (Cocoa)”
