I am pleased to bring you Volume 13, Issue 3 of Pharmacognosy Communications. In this issue, we present an evaluation of the antibacterial activity of Acacia disparrima Benth. and Acacia leicalyx Pedley leaf extracts in combination with conventional antibiotics against the bacterial triggers of selected autoimmune diseases. We also present a study that evaluates the antibacterial properties of Arctium lappa L. root extracts against a panel of gastrointestinal bacterial pathogens. Additionally, another study identifies bioactive compounds in aqueous pilis (transdermal herbal formulations) extracts. A further study examines the anticancer properties of Tasmannia lanceolata (Poir.) A.C. Sm. berry and leaf extracts by screening the extracts for antiproliferative and apoptotic activity against a panel of human cancer cell lines. Read more…
