Development of antimicrobial nanoemulsion-based delivery systems against selected pathogenic bacteria using a thymol rich Thymus daenensis essential oil

Ghaderi L, Moghimi R, Aliahmadi A, McClements DJ, Rafati H Journal of Applied Microbiology, 2017 ABSTRACT: AIMS: Thymol rich medicinal plants have been used in traditional medicine to relieve infectious diseases. However, the application of essential oils as medicine is limited by its low water-solubility and high vapor pressure. The objective of this study was to produce stable nanoemulsions of Thymus daenensis oil in… Read more »

Anti-inflammatory and antialgic actions of a nanoemulsion of Rosmarinus officinalis L. essential oil and a molecular docking study of its major chemical constituents

Borges RS, Lima ES, Keita H, Ferreira IM, Fernandes CP, Cruz RAS, Duarte JL, Velázquez-Moyado J, Ortiz BLS, Castro AN, Ferreira JV, da Silva Hage-Melim LI, Carvalho JCT Inflammopharmacology, 2017 ABSTRACT: We evaluate the anti-inflammatory and antialgic potency of a nanoemulsion (NEORO) containing the essential oil of Rosmarinus officinalis L. (EORO), which is composed primarily of limonene, camphor and 1,8-cineole. The EORO and NEORO were administered orally 30 min prior… Read more »
