Abstract

Background: Herpes simplex virus is a common human pathogen that establishes life-long latent infections. Thedevelopment of new antiviral drugs, especially herbal preparations remain desirable. Lavender has been shown topossess antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral actions.This study was designed to compare the safety and efficacy of topical Lavender cream, acyclovir cream, withplacebo for the treatment of herpes simplex labialis patients.Patients and Methods: Randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled study for herpes simplex labialis treatment, atotal of 75 enrolled patients divided to three groups and given study medications; group I: Lavender cream, group II:Acyclovir cream, group III: placebo, applied topically to the lesion three times daily for 5 days. Patient’s responses totreatment were followed by clinical evaluation of healing time, size of the lesion and pain sensation, and safety ofusing the topical treatment. Patients assessed themselves the day of the scab fell off. They also graded, on a dailybasis, their perception of relief from pain and the overall benefit from treatment. Also evaluating levels of theImmunoglobulin (IgG, IgE, IgM, IgA, and IgD) in the serum of herpes simplex labialis patients.Results: Herpes simplex patients showed a significant reduction in the healing time, size of lesions, and significant painrelief from the first topical dose as a result of treatment with lavender cream associated with immunity stateimprovement.Conclusions: Lavender cream is a new candidate as a safe and effective topical treatment for herpes simplex labialislesions.

Abstract

The present study was proposed to examine one of the important herbal plant is known Lavender and study the interaction of its extracts with enzymatic oxidation reduction process and anti microorganism. The catalase assay in vitro was implied in this work. Lavender flower containing on essential oils has been many uses for disease treatment, this plant bring from the trading market in Iraq. The current study involved biological activity on two ways; alcoholic extract on enzymatic activity, other way hot water extract and alcoholic extract on four isolate of bacteria and one type fungi. (The weight of flower is equal to 1gm/50ml for two extracts). The results of this study demonstrated effect of lavender to be activator agent of catalase enzymatic activity and Vmax was calculated without and with extract that equal to (88.6, 208)Ku/L and km equal to (53.5, 72.4)mM respectively by Line weaver-Burk plot. The activation percentage was calculated by using different volume of Ethanolic extract, that maximum activation is recorded equal to 133.6% at substrate concentration 60 mM and 100µl alcoholic extract. On the other hand their effects on microorganism obvious in the present study that showed not effect began.

Abstract

Biological experiment was conducted in the botanical garden of College of Education for Pure Science (Ibn Al-Haitham) during the growing season 2012-2013 to study the effect of extracts of mix flowers chamomilla (Matricaria chamomilla L.), lavender (Lavandula officinalis L.) and rose (Rosa gallica L.) with two concentrations 25% and 35% on vegetative characteristics and yield components of broad bean (Viciafabia L.). The results showed that the mixture of flowers extract affects significantly on the height of plant, number of leaves, surface area of leaf, leaf area relative, dry weight and level of protein in seeds.

أجريت تجربة حقلية في الحديقة النباتية التابعة لكلية التربية للعلوم الصرفة/ ابن الهيثم لموسم النمو 2012-2013 لدراسة تأثير مستخلص خليط ازهار البابونج Matricaria chamomilla L. وازهار الخزامي Lavandulao officinalis L. وازهار الورد الجوري Rosa gallica L. وبالتراكيز 25%35% في بعض صفات النمو والحاصل ومكوناته لنبات الباقلاءVicia fabaL..أظهرت النتائج ان مستخلص خليط الأزهار (البابونج، الخزامي والورد) أثر بصورة معنوية في الصفات المدروسة وهي ارتفاع النبات ,عدد الأوراق ,المساحة السطحية ,نسبة المساحة الورقية ,الوزن الجاف، الحاصل ومكوناته،ونسبة البروتين للباقلاء مقارنة مع نباتات السيطرة.
