Effective Home Remedies to Cure Candida Albicans

Yeast Infection No More

Yeast Infection No More was written by Linda Allen, who suffered with yeast infections for years. She has based the program on her own experience and her scientific research. Yeast Infection No More is divided into several sections, for example you have a section on immediate symptom relief, another section on long-term symptom relief, and an additional section on how to prevent yeast infection from returning. It is all about a holistic system for keeping yeast infection at bay. It is a way in which you can exert control over your own health, and over your own body. The Yeast Infection No More program demands dedication and some lifestyle changes in order to get the desired results and people with very tough schedules may find it to be a bit difficult for them.

Characteristics of the stem 1 Annual flower stems

Secondary growth does not take place. Monocotyledon-like distributed, closed collateral vascular bundles stand in the par-enchymatic tissue with large aerenchymatic lacunes (Figs. 1-3). The closed collateral vascular bundles contain a barely differentiated xylem and phloem (Figs. 4-6) as well as air ducts, which are surrounded by small parenchyma cells (Figs. 4-6). Single, large ducts stay outside the vascular bundle near the protoxylem on Nuphar lutea and Nymphaea alba (Figs. 4 and 5). Several small ducts stay within the vascular bundle of Nympaea candida (Fig. 6). Simple perforations and annular to helical thickenings (Fig. 7) are characteristic of the always unlignified vessels of all three species. The construction of aerenchyma is species-specific net-like with larger cells in nodal points of Nuphar lu tea (Fig. 1), and Nymphaea candida (Fig. 3) and tube-like in Nymphaea alba (Fig. 2). Specific for Nuphar lutea (Fig. 8) and Nymphaea alba (Fig. 9) are the star-shaped hairs with...

Measurement of Microbiocidal Activity

Although the methods above can determine Minimum Lethal Concentrations of agents they involve prolonged contact (generally 24-48 hours) between the agent and the test organism and give no evidence of the rate of kill. Because antiseptics and disinfectants are generally required to reduce the microbial load rapidly, kill rate or suspension tests are more relevant to their intended use. In principle, such tests involve the addition of an appropriate volume of inoculum to a clinically relevant concentration of the agent followed by the testing of the viability of the culture after set periods of incubation. This basic procedure can be adapted by changing variables such as inoculum density, concentration of the test agent, contact time and presence of potential inactivators, to satisfy the testing requirements. In a study of the death kinetics of Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger treated with samples of thyme oil, it was reported that variations

Plasma Membrane Recycling from the Early Endosome

The closely related Candida albicans, while they are present in several other filamentous yeast species such as Schizosaccharomyces pombe, Neurospora crassa, and Aspergillus fumigatus. As neither S. cerevisiae nor C. albicans exhibit tip-growth via hyphae, the lack of Rab4 orthologues in these systems has been suggested to reflect the increased requirement for efficient membrane recycling to the plasma membrane during hyphal tip-growth in filamentous fungi (Gupta and Brent Heath 2002). Given the presence of tip-growing cells such as pollen tubes and root hair cells in plants, it is somewhat surprising that Rab4 orthologues have not yet been characterized (Pereira-Leal and Seabra 2001 Vernoud et al. 2003). It should be mentioned, however, that members of the A. thaliana RabB family are highly similar to the Rab2 family of animals (Pereira-Leal and Seabra 2001). Because the Rab4 orthologues present in animals and filamentous yeast co-segregate with the Rab2 subfamily the possibility...

Highaffinity iron uptake in yeast

The mechanism of Fe uptake in fungi has been most frequently studied in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Schizosaccharomyces pombe and Candida albicans. However, the mechanism of Fe uptake in Saccharomyces has been studied in most detail and because of this and other reasons that will become apparent, regulation of Fe uptake in Saccharomyces will be briefly summarized. Lesuisse and Labbe (1989) were the first to recognize that reduction of extracellular Fe3+ was a prerequisite for high-affinity Fe uptake in Saccharomyces. Subsequently, Dancis et al. (1990) and Georgatsou and Alexandraki (1994) cloned the genes, FRE1 and FRE2, encoding Fe3 -chelate reductases that were shown to be essential for high-affinity Fe uptake. Surprisingly at that time, Dancis et al. (1994) reported that deletion of the high-affinity Cu transporter, Ctr1p, led to loss of high-affinity Fe uptake. The dependence of high-affinity Fe uptake on copper nutrition had been long before recognized in swine that showed Fe...

Sphingolipid Structure and Biosynthesis 21 Sphingolipid Structure

Component of, and this, in turn, may influence the subcellular location of the sphingolipid, not least of all due to the difference in charge between GIPC and neutral cerebrosides (Sperling et al. 2005). It has previously been suggested that the ratio of cis trans A8-unsaturated LCBs is correlated with the chilling tolerance in plants (Kawaguchi et al. 2000). It is also worth noting that the A8-unsaturated LCBs are only widely found in the plant kingdom they are absent from animals and the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae (which represents the best characterised organism in terms of sphingolipid biosynthesis), though some fungi such as Pichia pastoris and Candida albicans have been shown to contain A8-unsaturated LCBs (Ternes et al. 2006). It was also recently demonstrated that the marine diatom Thalisosira pseudonana has the capacity to synthesis such LCBs (Tonon et al. 2005). In contrast, the predominant LCB of many animal sphingolipids is sphingosine (d18.14) as noted above, this is...

Infections of the Genitourinary System

Although Humphrey (1930) suggested the suitability of tea tree oil for treatment of vaginal infections, the first report in the literature of its effectiveness in treating such infections is that of Pena (1962). He reported clinical cure following treatment of 130 cases of vaginal infections, due mostly to Trichomonas (116 cases) and Candida albicans (4 cases). The treatment regime involved douching with a 0.4 solution of Melaleuca alternifolia oil and insertion of tampons saturated with a 20-40 solution of the oil. This treatment was reported to be as effective as use of standard antitrichomonal suppositories, and without side-effects of irritation and burning. Twenty-eight chronic cases of vaginal infection caused by Candida albicans were treated by nightly insertion of a pessary containing 20mg of tea tree oil for a period of three months (Belaiche 1985b). Infection and symptoms were alleviated in 21 cases, with an improvement in symptoms, but persistence of the yeast, in a further...

Piergiorgio Pietta Pierluigi Mauri and Nicola Fuzzati

Preparations of aerial parts and roots from three Echinacea species (e.g., E. angustifolia DC., roots, E. pallida Nutt., roots and E. purpurea Moench, roots and tops) are generally employed for treatment of cold, flu, and chronic respiratory infections (Grimm and Muller, 1999). Echinacea species contain a variety of components that may contribute to the nonspecific enhancement of the immune system (Bauer et al., 1998) and to antiinflammatory properties (Muller-Jakic et al., 1994). It is accepted that these activities depend on the combined action of the following categories of compounds polar caffeoyl conjugates and polysaccharides and lipophilic alkamides and polyacetylenes. In particular, caffeic acid derivatives and alkamides have been proven to contribute considerably to the biological properties of Echinacea species. Among caffeic acid derivatives, cichoric acid (dicaffeoyl tartaric acid) is known to have in vitro and in vivo immunomodulatory activity. Moreover, it inhibits a key...

General features of macrophage activation

Mannosylated bovine serum albumin (m-BSA) enhances the respiratory burst, phagocytosis, and killing of Candida albicans by mouse peritoneal macrophages (Stuart etal., 1997). Upregulation of macrophage functions is associated with the binding of m-BSA to the macrophage mannose receptor. Experiments have been conducted to determine if a carbohydrate solution from A. vera can stimulate macrophages in a similar manner. Mouse peritoneal macrophages were exposed to AI for ten minutes and showed a two-fold increase in their respiratory burst, as measured by chemilumines-cence, above the media controls. Macrophages were also exposed to AI, washed, and exposed to Candida. There was a marked increase in phagocytosis in the treated cells compared to controls. Macrophages exposed to AI for ten minutes resulted in a 38 killing of Candida compared to 0 5 killing in controls. Macrophages exposed to AI for 60 minutes resulted in 98 of the Candida being killed compared to 0 5 in the controls. Thus,...

Phytochemical and pharmacological investigations

The acetone and methanol extracts of Lasallia pustulata (L.) Meret. (Umbilicariaceae), Parmelia sulcata Taylor, and Umbilicaria crustulosa (Ach.) Frey (Umbilicariaceae), manifested antibacterial activity against the majority of species of bacteria tested, in addition to selective antifungal activity. Acetone, chloroform, diethyl ether, methanol, and petroleum ether extracts of Parmelia sulcata and its constituent (salazinic acid) demonstrated antibacterial activity against Aeromonas hydrophila, Bacillus cereus, Bacillus subtilis, Listeria monocytogenes, Proteus vulgaris, Yersinia enterocolitica, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus faecalis, Candida albicans, Candida glabrata, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus fumigatus, and Penicillium notatum. 3-hydroxyphysodic acid isolated from Hypogymnia tubulosa (Schaerer) Havaas (Parmeliaceae) showed antimicrobial activity against Aeromonas hydrophila, Bacillus cereus, Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Listeria...

TLRs as Primary Sensors of Pathogenic PAMPS and Endogenous Danger Molecules

However, di- and triacylated lipopeptides were recently reported to mediate TLR2-dependent responses in TLR1- and in TLR6-deficient mice (Buwitt-Beckmann et al. 2006). These data indicate that lipopeptides with distinct acylation patterns can be recognized by TLR2 in a TLR1- and TLR6-independent manner. Further studies will be needed to address the question of whether a tri- or diacylation patterns confer specificity upon a lipopeptide for TLR1- or TLR6-dependency, respectively, or if an additional, compensatory recognition system exists. Other molecules, e.g., CD36 and Dectin-1, also contribute to TLR2-mediated signal transduction. CD36 has been characterized as a selective and non-redundant sensor of microbial diacylglycerides that signal via the TLR2 6 heterodimer (e.g., MALP-2, LTA Hoebe et al. 2005). Indeed, CD36 KO- mice exhibit defective clearance of Staphylococcus aureus in vivo, develop profound bacteremia, and CD36- - macrophages fail to internalize S. aureus and...

Structure and Function of Fungal and Oomycete Haustoria

Haustoria Formed Fungi

The extrahaustorial matrix is delimited on the pathogen side by the haustorial cell wall and on the host side by an extension of the host plasma membrane known as the extrahaustorial membrane (Harder and Chong 1991). In rust and powdery mildew infections, the extrahaustorial matrix is sealed off from the apoplast by a structure known as the neckband which is thought to act as a selectively permeable barrier, like the Casparian strip at the endodermis of plant roots (Heath 1976 Harder and Chong 1991). Haustoria of hemibiotrophic fungi and oomycetes appear to be less differentiated than those of the rusts and powdery mildews and generally lack neckbands, although some exceptions exist, as in the case of the oomycete Albugo candida which possesses a simple neckband (Soylu 2004 Perfect and Green 2001). In infections by some rust fungi, such as Puccinia hemerocallidis and Puccinia striiformis, tubular beaded elements contiguous with the extrahaustorial matrix...

Antimicrobial Activity of Tea Tree

The very broad spectrum of activity of tea tree oil, a highly desirable characteristic in an antiseptic or disinfectant, has been confirmed by a number of studies published during the last decade. Table 2 identifies the organisms which have been tested by various authors and presents MIC values for a large number of organisms from a single study (Griffin et al. 1998). These results suggest the enormous potential of tea tree oil in a variety of applications, including the treatment of external conditions such as acne, tinea, thrush and staphylococcal and streptococcal infections, in oral hygiene products, in the disinfection of cooling towers contaminated with Legionella, and in agricultural uses. Not only has the sensitivity of many species of bacteria and fungi to tea tree oil been demonstrated, but some studies have examined the susceptibility of large numbers of recent clinical isolates, as well as type strains, of particular species (see Table 2 for references). Such data provides...

Tea Tree Oil in the Treatment of Fungal Infections of the Skin and Nails

Infections include tinea pedis (also known as athlete's foot), tinea (or pityriasis) versicolor, paronychia (infection of the tissue surrounding the nails) and onychomycosis (infection of the nail). The causative organisms vary from case to case and site to site, but the most common causative organisms are the dermatophytes Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Epidermophyton floccosum and Microsporum canis and the yeast, Candida albicans.

The number of y-Glu-Cys dipeptide repeats influences the stability of the complexes. Complexes formed with shorter peptides (n 1 and n 2) are more labile, and accretion of the crystallite to larger particles is more facile 117 . In yeasts S. pombe and Candida glabrata, although (y-Glu-Cys) peptides are present in C-binding complexes, (y-Glu-Cys)2-4-Gly peptides are usually more concentrated 120,121 . In tomato, the number of y-Glu-Cys units varies from 3 to 6 with n 4 the predominant peptides 117 . The Cd-binding complexes from several other sources are composed of (y-Glu-Cys)n-Gly, with n 3 and n 4 oligomers the most abundant 108,122 . In soybean (Glycine max), n 1,2,3,4 oligomers of (y-Glu-Cys)n-P-Ala form the Cd-binding complexes 83 . The HMW complexes in maize are formed by the peptides from three families (y-Glu-Cys)n-Gly (y-Glu-Cys)n-Glu and (y-Glu-Cys)n, of which (y-Glu-Cys)n peptides remain present in highest concentrations, followed by (y-Glu-Cys)n-Gly and (y-Glu-Cys)n-Glu....

Bioactivity of Essential Oils

After the essential oil had been obtained from the hydrodistillation of 100 g of freshly-gathered leaves in 500ml distilled water for 8 hours, each sample was tested on microorganism cultures of Erwinia, Candida albicans and Micrococcus. Each sample of oil came from one tree. The chemical composition was determined before carrying out this antimicrobial measurement. The Erwinia bacteriostatic and bactericidal effects were higher than for Candida albicans. For the sample tested on Micrococcus some activities higher than Erwinia bioactivity were observed. Preliminary tests also showed some biostatic and bactericidal activity of the Candida albicans

Receptors with Scavenger Like Activity Recognize a Variety of Microbes

A novel receptor, Eater, has been identified and is required for the recognition and uptake of both E. coli and S. aureus in vivo and in S2 cells. RNAi of Eater led to a partial (up to 75 ) decrease in the ability of S2 cells to phagocytose both bacteria. Similar, but less dramatic results were reported in eater null flies. The humoral response was unaffected by the eater mutation, indicating that eater's effects may be specific to the cellular immune response. The predicted protein is a transmembrane receptor with an extracellular domain containing EGF-like repeats followed by a variable N-terminal region. The N-terminus of the Eater protein directly recognizes and binds S. aureus, the yeast Candida silvativa, and the Gramnegative bacterium Serratia marcescens (Kocks et al. 2005). It is likely that Eater acts redundantly or in conjunction with dSR-CI and PGRP-LC to recognize E. coli and S. aureus and initiate phagocytosis. Indeed, the earlier reports characterizing

Partitioning Effect in Formulated Products

With no surfactant present nearly all the tea tree oil had migrated into the oil phase. In the presence of the surfactant the concentration of the tea tree oil in the aqueous phase remains at about 0.4 . The partitioning appeared to be independent of the concentration of the surfactant in the range studied. This has important implications for formulated products. It is thus essential that appropriate microbial evaluation be undertaken for all tea tree oil products. It is recommended that specific organisms be used depending on the use of the product e.g. Propionibacterium acnes and Candida albicans for acne and antifungal products respectively.

Supplementation on Plants Stress Responses

Gaertn., and F. emargitatum) (Talukder and Sharma 2007). Cobalt acts as a chelator of salicy-lidine-o-aminothiophenol and salicylidine-o aminopyridine and exerts biocidal activity against the molds Aspergillus nidulans winter and A. Niger Tiegh and the yeast Candida albicans. Antifungal activities of Co (II) with acetone sali-cyloyl hydrazone and ethyl methyl ketone salicy-loyl hydrazone against A. Niger and A. flavus have been established (Johari et al. 1987).

Biological Properties

Mehrotra et al. (1993) reported the marked antifungal activity of A. dracunculus volatile oil against Candida albicans and Sporotrichum schenkii, while Margina and Zheljazkov (1996) have highlighted the susceptibility of A. dracunculus to the pathogenic rust fungus Puccinia dracunculina.

Antitumor applications

Plasmodium berghei and the yeast Candida albicans (Brossat etal, 1981). The protective fraction must be administered two days before inoculation of the pathogenic agent. In addition, when the mice were injected with an unrefined extract from A. vahombe, they were protected against Klebsiella septicaemia (Solar etal, 1980). Neither bactericidal nor bacteriostatic activity has been detected in this aloe extract. Nevertheless, the anti-infectious activity was proportional to the dose of extract injected, and the protective activity was the greatest when the mice were treated with aloe two or three days prior to infection.

Oral Infection and Colonization of the

These include the Gram-negative bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Darby et al. 1999 Mahajan-Miklos et al. 1999 Tan et al. 1999a, b), Salmonella typhimurium and other S. enterica serovars (Labrousse et al. 2000) Serratia marcescens (Mallo et al. 2002), Yersinia pestis (Styer et al. 2005) and Burkholderia (O'Quinn et al. 2001 Kothe et al. 2003), the Gram-positive bacteria Enterococcus faecalis (Garsin et al. 2003 Sifri et al. 2002), Staphylococcus aureus and S. epidermis (Begun et al. 2005, 2007) and the fungi Cryptococcus neoformans (Mylonakis et al. 2002), and Candida albicans (Breger et al. 2007).

An EST Database of Monacrosporium haptotylum

To apply the microarray technology to studies of the infection mechanisms of nematode-trapping fungi, an EST database for Monacrosporium haptotylum (syn. Dactylaria candida) was generated (Ahren et al. 2005). This fungus infects nematodes using an adhesive knob (c.f. Fig. 6.1). The advantage of using M. haptotylum is that during growth in liquid cultures with heavy aeration, the connections between the traps (knobs) and mycelium can be broken easily and the knobs can be separated from the mycelium by filtration (Friman 1993). The isolated knobs retain their function as infection structures, i.e. they can capture and infect nematodes. We constructed four directional cDNA libraries from mycelium, knobs, and knobs infecting C. elegans for 4 and 24 h, respectively. In total, 8,463 ESTs were sequenced from the four cDNA libraries. The sequences were assembled into 3,121 contigs that putatively represent unique genes transcripts. Between 5 and 37 of

Prospects To The Future

Ergot alkaloids may be also industrial pollutant. Their biodegradation has been, therefore, addressed as well. Various yeasts were tested for reduction of ergot alkaloid in industrial wastes and some of them (Hansenula anomala, Pichia kluyveri, Candida utilis) degraded up to 70-80 of the alkaloid content. The best degraders were isolated directly from the wastes containing ergot alkaloids (Recek et al., 1984).

Proteins Opsonize Invading Bacteria and Fungi to Promote Phagocytosis

Several proteins have been discovered in Drosophila which share sequence similarities with the mammalian complement C3 a2-macroglobulin super-family of proteins, and are predicted to be secreted into hemolymph (Lagueux et al. 2000). These proteins, named thiolester proteins (TEPs), share a predicted signal peptide and a unique C-terminal region featuring six cysteine residues in conserved positions. These predicted proteins all contain a highly variable central region, indicating the potential for great diversity and specificity of activity. TEP II, for example, has five different splice forms. A microarray study of genes up-regulated upon infection in adult flies detected CG4823, a fly homolog of the complement-binding protein a2-macroglobulin (De Gregorio et al. 2001). This gene may encode a protein that binds to opsonized microbes to trigger phagocytosis. In the mosquito Anopheles gambiae, aTEP-I has been shown to opsonize and promote the phagocytosis of Escherichia coli and other...

Antimicrobial Peptides from Urochordates

Much of the work on antimicrobial peptides from the Urochordata has been performed on hemocytes of ascidians of the family Styelidae (for a review, see Tincu and Taylor 2004). Briefly, from the hemocytes of Styela clava, the clavanins (a family of four-helical, amphipathic, histidine-rich antimicrobial peptides that contain 23 amino acids and exhibit C-terminal amidation) were purified (Lee et al., 1997a, b Menzel et al. 2002). Clavanins A to D resemble the magainins, well characterized antimicrobial peptides from the skin of Xenopus laevis. Synthetic clavanin A displays antimicrobial activity comparable with that of magainins and cecropins (Lee et al. 1997a, b). In addition to Escherichia coli, Listeria monocy-togenes, and Candida albicans, clavanins are broadly effective against gram-positive bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus (Menzel et al. 2002). In addition to the halocyamines, antimicrobial peptides of 6.2 kDa and 3.4 kDa have been isolated from Halocynthia roretzi. The...

An Overview Of Ammonium Assimilation

Glutamine was identified as an early product of NH assimilation by Yoneyama and Kumazawa (1974) and as a major metabolite in supplying reduced N to other reactions. Glutamine synthetase (GS, EC was also identified as the dominant catalyst mediating this reaction (O' Neal and Joy 1973). Nevertheless, the identification of a reaction for the synthesis of glutamate, a substrate in the GS reaction, was still missing. When Sims and Folkes (1964) examined the assimilation of NH4+ in the fungus Candida utilis, they identified glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH, EC as being involved in the incorporation of NH4+ into glutamate by amination of a-ketoglutarate, and they postulated a similar reaction in higher plants. The NADH-dependent GDH catalyses the following reversible reaction

RNA Silencing Protein Machinery in Fungi

With growing genomic sequence information from diverse fungi, comparative studies on evolution and diversification of RNA silencing proteins in this group of eukaryotes have become possible. A phylogenetic analysis of fungal species covering, ascomycetes, basidiomycetes and zygomycetes was carried out by Nakayashiki and Kadotani (2006). These authors used sequences coding for Dicer, RdRP and Argonaute proteins in order to establish the evolutionary history of diversification of RNA silencing pathways between and within different fungal taxa and also between fungal, plant (Arabidopsis) and animal (Drosophila) kingdoms. The existence of RNAi protein machinery has been demonstrated in asco-mycetes, basidiomycetes and zygomycetes. However, different fungal taxa show an unexpected wide diversification in their RNAi protein repertoire. Some parts of the fungal RNAi machinery have gone through phases of expansion while a complete or partial loss of the pathway has happened independently in...

Biological Control

Plant growth-promoting bacteria control the plant damage by phytopathogens. This involves different mechanisms including out competing the phytopathogen, physical displacement of the phytopathogen, secretion of siderophores to prevent pathogens in the immediate vicinity from proliferating, synthesis of antibiotics and synthesis of a variety of small molecules. All these steps can inhibit phytopathogen growth, production of enzymes that inhibit the phytopathogen and stimulation of the systemic resistance of the plant 114 . Intensive screens have yielded numerous candidate organisms for commercial development. Some of the microbial taxa that have been successfully commercialized and are currently marketed as EPA-registered biopesticides in the United States include bacteria belonging to the genera Agrobacterium, Bacillus, Pseudomonas, and Streptomyces and fungi belonging to the genera Ampelomyces, Candida, Coniothyrium, and Trichoderma 115 . More studies on the practical aspects of...

Direct Combustion

Traditional fermentation yeasts, such as S. cerevisiae, are not adapted to utilize inulin. However, a number of yeast strains have been discovered with inulinase activity, which can both hydrolyze inulin and ferment the resulting sugars (Echeverrigaray and Tavares, 1985 Guiraud et al., 1981a, 1981b Padukone, 1996). It is therefore possible to produce ethanol from Jerusalem artichoke juice using these yeasts in a single vessel, without prior hydrolysis or saccharification, in a process called simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSF) (Figure 7.1b). In practice, enzymatic hydrolysis may still be conducted under acidic conditions, for instance, to utilize the enzymes present in the plant material and to start saccharification prior to the addition of inulinase-producing yeasts. High rates of ethanol production from tuber extracts have been obtained with inulin-fermenting strains of K. marxianus, K. fragilis, Candida pseudotropicalis, C. kefyr, C. macedoniensis, Saccha-romyces...


One of the best ways to prevent polyamine formation is via evaluating digestive function with such tests as Heidelburg analysis or functional medicine assessments and then correcting problems with protein digestion or absorption by way of appropriate therapies. The Heidelburg analysis is a simple test that involves swallowing a radiotelemetry capsule that measures the stomach's pH at baseline and then after a pH-buffered test to see how the stomach compensates with acid production. Functional medicine tests include a closely monitored clinical trial of betaine hydrochloride. For patients who cannot get access to the Heidelburg analysis, the best second-line option is the betaine trial provided that there is no overt GI disease, such as ulcers or esophagitis, for example. Other intestinal toxins are implicated in psoriasis. These include endotoxins from gram-negative bacteria, C. albicans, and yeast compounds. These compounds lead to increased cGMP levels within skin cells.21,22...

P The antimicrobial effect of the buffered extracts of all these chewing sticks on the oral flora has been tested by the streak-plate method and it has been shown that all are to some extent active, whilst the controls showed a heavy increase in microorganisms although to differing degrees. The action against more than 20 organisms, including Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria as well as Candida spp. and protozoa (Entamoebia gingivalis) was examined. Canthine-6-one (also isolated from Zanthoxylum elephantiasis) has been shown to be consistently active against Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Mycobacterium smegmatis and Candida albicans (Mitscher et al., 1972a, b). The rootbark also contains fagarol, which has been found to be identical with sesamine from Sesamum indicum (Karrer, 1958). The root of Z. zanthoxyloides, in addition to giving the biggest zone of inhibition of all the


Histatins are salivary histidine-rich cationic peptides, ranging from 7 to 38 amino acid residues in length, that exert a potent killing effect in vitro on C. albicans (Helmerhorst et al. 1997). Candida species are common commensal inhabitants of the oral cavity and it was shown that the oral yeast status is related to salivary histatin levels (Jainkittivong et al. 1998).

Yeasty fermentation

Yeasty fermentation is caused by the yeast species Hanseniaspora valbyensis (M. Okimoto, unpublished data) and can be a major problem in overripe fruits. A dry yeast rot has been attributed to Candida intermedia var. alco-holophila (M. Okimoto, unpublished data). Occasionally, the disease will occur in green fruit, having severe interfruitlet corking symptoms with associated fruit cracking (K.G. Rohrbach, personal observation). The disease has also been associated with high incidences of fruit sunburn (Lim, 1985). Losses can be minimized by reducing sunburn and harvesting fruit before they are overripe.
