In vitro antimicrobial activity of Pistacia lentiscus L. extracts
Iauk L, Ragusa S, Rapisarda A, Franco S, Nicolosi VM.
The in vitro antimicrobial activity of Pistacia lentiscus L. extracts was determined. Pistacia lentiscus L. extracts were tested on bacteria (Sarcina lutea, Staphylococcus auereus, and Escherichia coli) and Fungi (Candiada albicans, Cadida parapsilosis, Torulopsis glabrata and Cryptococcus neoformans). Of the different plant extractions, decoctions showed the best antibacterial activity, but the activity against fungal cells appears to be much more interesting.
