- ... In this study, essential oil extracted from Syagrus coronata seeds (SCEO) was evaluated for antibacterial and antibiofilm activities against Staphylococcus aureus; in addition, Galleria mellonella model was used as an in vivo infection model. SCEO was mainly composed by fatty acids (89.79%) and sesquiterpenes (8.5%). The major components were octanoic acid, dodecanoic acid, decanoic acid and γ-eud ...

- ... Antibiotics resistance of H. pylori has been increasing constantly accompanied with decreasing clearance rate clinically, which is demonstrated to be closely related to biofilms with higher resistance than planktonic bacteria for the dense extracellular polymeric substances. Rhamnolipid (RHL) is proved to not only damage the structure of biofilm, but also potentially inhibit bacterial adhesion. To ...
