Essential Oil as a Potential Anti-Acne Topical Nanoemulsion-In Vitro and In Vivo Study

Taleb MH, Abdeltawab NF, Shamma RN, Abdelgayed SS, Mohamed SS, Farag MA, Ramadan MA Molecules, 2018 ABSTRACT: Antibiotics are often prescribed in acne treatment; however, Propionibacterium acnes and Staphylococcus epidermidis, the two of the major acne-associated bacteria, developed antibiotic resistance. Essential oils (EOs) present a natural, safe, efficacious and multifunctional alternative treatment. This study aimed… Read more »

Wound Healing Study of Eucalyptus Essential Oil Containing Nanoemulsion in Rat Model

Alam P, Shakeel F, Anwer MK, Foudah AI, Alqarni MH Journal of Oleo Science, 2018 ABSTRACT: The objective of this investigation was to develop nanoemulsion formulations of Eucalyptus essential oil (EEO) and to evaluate its wound healing effects in comparison with standard gentamycin in rat model. Various nanoemulsionns of EEO were prepared using aqueous phase… Read more »

Antimicrobial activity of nanoemulsion on drug-resistant bacterial pathogens

Krishnamoorthy R, Athinarayanan J, Periyasamy VS, Adisa AR, Al-Shuniaber MA, Gassem MA, Alshatwi AA Microbial Pathogenesis, 2018 ABSTRACT: The appearance of drug-resistant (DR) bacteria in the community is a crucial development, and is associated with increased morbidity, mortality, healthcare costs, and antibiotic use. Natural oil nanoemulsions (NEs) have potential for antimicrobial applications. In the present… Read more »

Antibiofilm activity of nanoemulsions of Cymbopogon flexuosus against rapidly growing mycobacteria

Rossi GG, Guterres KB, Bonez PC, da Silva Gundel S, Aggertt VA, Siqueira FS, Ourique AF, Wagnerd R, Klein B, Santos RCV, de Campos MMA Microbial Pathogenesis, 2017 ABSTRACT: Rapidly growing mycobacteria (RGM) are opportunistic microorganisms that can cause both local and disseminated infections. When in biofilm, these pathogens become highly resistant to antimicrobials used… Read more »

Beneficial effects of TQRF and TQ nano- and conventional emulsions on memory deficit, lipid peroxidation, total antioxidant status, antioxidants genes expression and soluble Aβ levels in high fat-cholesterol diet-induced rats

Ismail N, Ismail M, Azmi NH, Bakar MFA, Yida Z, Stanslas J, Sani D, Basri H, Abdullah MA Chemico-Biological Interactions, 2017 ABSTRACT: The study determined the effect of thymoquinone rich fraction (TQRF) and thymoquinone (TQ) in the forms of nano- and conventional emulsions on learning and memory, lipid peroxidation, total antioxidant status, antioxidants genes expression and soluble β-amyloid (Aβ) levels in rats fed… Read more »
