Transcriptional response of vancomycin resistant Enterococcus faecium to a synergistic antibiotic-essential oil combination: A strategy to preserve the current antibiotic repertoire?
Background: New antimicrobials to treat Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE) infections are considered a high priority. Essential oil compounds have been shown to interact synergistically with antibiotics, and ...
A Multifactorial Comparison of Ternary Combinations of Essential Oils in Topical Preparations to Current Antibiotic Prescription Therapies for the Control of Acne Vulgaris-Associated Bacteria.
Acne vulgaris, a chronic condition associated with overgrowth of Propionibacterium acnes and Staphylococcus epidermidis, is commonly treated with antibiotics. However, the emergence of antibiotic resistance has resulted ...
Characterisation and screening of antimicrobial essential oil components against clinically important antibiotic-resistant bacteria using thin layer chromatography-direct bioautography hyphenated with GC-MS, LC-MS and NMR.
Introduction: The antimicrobial activity of many Essential Oils (EOs) is well established, indicating that EOs may be a source of compounds for antimicrobial drug development. Thin Layer Chromatography-Direct Bioautography ...
Synchronous application of antibiotics and essential oils: dual mechanisms of action as a potential solution to antibiotic resistance
(Taylor and Francis, 2018-01-10)
Antibiotic resistance has increased dramatically in recent years, yet the antibiotic pipeline has stalled. New therapies are therefore needed to continue treating antibiotic resistant infections. One potential strategy ...
Antimicrobial Activity of Ternary Essential Oil Mixtures in Topical Cosmetic Preparations Against Acne Vulgaris-Associated Bacteria.
(Phytochemical Society of Europe, 2017)
Acne vulgaris is a chronic skin condition associated with overgrowth of Propionibacterium acnes and Staphylococcus epidermidis. Antibiotics are commonly prescribed to control acne; however, resistance has emerged, indicating ...
Structure-activity modelling of essential oils, their components, and key molecular parameters and descriptors
Many essential oil components are known to possess broad spectrum antimicrobial activity, including against antibiotic resistant bacteria. These compounds may be a useful source of new and novel antimicrobials. However, ...
Developing a topical preparation containing a synergistic antimicrobial combination of essential oils for the control of acne vulgaris-associated bacteria.
(Society for Applied Microbiology, 2015)
The Effect of Low Temperature Laundering and Detergents on the Survival of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus on Textiles Used in Healthcare Uniforms
(Journal of Applied Microbiology, 2017-06-09)
Aims: To determine the survival of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus on cotton and polyester and the effectiveness of low temperature laundering and detergents on the removal of microorganism from healthcare ...
