Abstract:

Introduction: Trachyspermum ammi leaves and seeds have been used as dietary supplements and to treat multiple pathogenic diseases in several traditional healing systems. Despite this, their therapeutic properties have been poorly studied. Methods: Chloroform, ethyl acetate, hexane, methanol and water extracts of T. ammi were prepared and tested and the activity was compared to that of standard antibiotics for their in vitro antibacterial activity against ten human bacterial pathogens. The antibacterial activity was studied by standard disc diffusion assays and the activity was recorded as zones of inhibition. Results: All T. ammi seed extracts were ineffective at inhibiting the growth of all of the gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria pathogens screened against. Conclusion: Despite their use in traditional healing systems to treat some pathogenic diseases, T. ammi seed extracts were completely ineffective bacterial growth inhibitors. However, these extracts were screened against a limited panel of bacteria and further testing against other pathogens is required.

Founded:  In 2004, as the PHCOG.NET – a non-profit private organization dedicated to Natural Products Research leading to develop promising drugs. Our main mission is to make information on herbal drug research readily available in different formats to suit the individual needs.

Pharmacognosy Communications [Phcog Commn.] is a new quarterly journal published by Phcog.Net. It is a peer reviewed journal aiming to publish high quality original research articles, methods, techniques and evaluation reports, critical reviews, short communications, commentaries and editorials of all aspects of medicinal plant research. The journal is aimed at a broad readership, publishing articles on all aspects of pharmacognosy, and related fields. The journal aims to increase understanding of pharmacognosy as well as to direct and foster further research through the dissemination of scientific information by the  publication of manuscripts. The submission of original contributions in all areas of pharmacognosy are welcome.

The journal aims to cater the latest outstanding developments in the field of pharmacognosy and natural products and drug design covering but not limited to the following topics:

  • Pharmacognosy and pharmacognistic investigations
  • Research based ethnopharmacological evaluations
  • Biological evaluation of crude extracts, essential oils and pure isolates
  • Natural product discovery and evaluation
  • Mechanistic studies
  • Method and technique development and evaluation
  • Isolation, identification and structural elucidation of natural products
  • Synthesis and transformation studies
