Nerolidol anti-viral,anti-bacterial in vitro Sensitization of Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli to Antibiotics by the Sesquiterpenoids Nerolidol, Farnesol, Bisabolol, and Apritone Oct 2003
Our results suggest a general role for the use of sesquiterpenoid compounds as enhancers of nonspecific bacterial permeability to antibiotics and antimicrobials.
Limonene anti-bacterial in vitro Mechanism of Bacterial Inactivation by (+)-Limonene and Its Potential Use in Food Preservation Combined Processes Feb 2013
The study of the mechanism of bacterial inactivation by (+)-limonene showed that the lethality of this compound was higher at pH 4.0 than at neutral pH
Humulene,Pinene,Caryophyllene anti-bacterial in vitro Composition and anti-bacterial activity of Abies balsamea essential oil. May 2006
Ingestion Method: essential oil of Abies balsamea (balsam fir)
However, three constituents of the essential oil were active against S. aureus: alpha-pinene, beta-caryophyllene (0.4%) and alpha-humulene (0.2%) with MIC values of 13.6 microg/mL, 5.1 microg/mL and 2.6 microg/mL, respectively.
CBN,CBD,CBC,THC,CBN anti-bacterial in vitro anti-bacterial cannabinoids from Cannabis sativa: a structure-activity study. August 2008
All five major cannabinoids (cannabidiol (1b), cannabichromene (2), cannabigerol (3b), Delta (9)-tetrahydrocannabinol (4b), and cannabinol (5)) showed potent activity against a variety of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains of current clinical relevance
Bisabolol anti-bacterial in mice via experiment (-)-Alpha-Bisabolol, a Promising Oral Compound for the Treatment of Visceral Leishmaniasis June 2015
Ingestion Method: oral
Bisabolol is a nontoxic compound that was proven to be active against visceral leishmaniasis in an in vivo murine model orally.
Guaiol anti-bacterial,anti-oxidant The essential oil from the fruits of the Brazilian spice Xylopia sericea A. St.-Hil. presents expressive in-vitro anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant activity. Mar 2017
Ingestion Method: Xylopia sericea fruits (OXS)
OXS presented a significant antioxidant activity and also a high bacteriostatic effect against Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter cloacae, Bacillus cereus and Klebsiella pneumoniae.
Linalool anti-bacterial in plants Bacteria colonising Penstemon digitalis show volatile and tissue-specific responses to a natural concentration range of the floral volatile linalool. Mar 2018
We show that response to floral volatiles can be substance and tissue-origin specific. Because linalool could slow growth rate of bacteria across the P. digitalis phyllosphere, floral emission of linalool could play a role in mediating plant-bacteria interactions in this system.
Linalool anti-bacterial in vitro via experiment Yields, chemical composition, and antimicrobial activity of two Algerian essential oils against 40 avian multidrug-resistant Escherichia coli strains. Nov 2018
In aviculture, these results seem to be very promising in the case where we think about the replacement of antibiotics by EOs, in vivo studies would be very interesting to confirm or invalidate this hypothesis.
Pinene,Eugenol anti-bacterial in vitro via experiment Inhibitory effect of Beta-pinene, Alpha-pinene and eugenol on the growth of potential infectious endocarditis causing Gram-positive bacteria Mar 2007
Positive  The assayed phytochemicals presented interesting antimicrobial potential noted by low MIC values. MIC values oscillated between 2.5 (eugenol x S. pneumoniae ATCC 11773) to 40 mL/mL (beta-pinene x S. epidermidis ATCC 12228)
Myrcene anti-bacterial in vitro via experiment The anti-bacterial Effects of Myrcene on Staphylococcus aureus and Its Role in the Essential Oil of the Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) Feb 2004
Myrcene acts as an antibacterial agent against S. aureus and is an important contributor to the antibacterial activity of TTO.
cannabis anti-bacterial in vitro Antimicrobial activity of Cannabis sativa, Thuja orientalis and Psidium guajava leaf extracts against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus Sep 2018
The leaf extracts of C. sativa, T. orientalis and P. guajava had potential for the control of both hospital- and community-acquired MRSA.
