Allium Sativum


Presentation

  • Present study showed significant decrease in both Systolic and Diastolic blood pressure in both dose and duration dependent manner.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • METHODS: In the present study the antimicrobial potency of garlic and ginger has been investigated against eight local clinical bacterial isolates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The objective of present investigation was to study in vitro inhibitory activity of garlic extract on multidrug-resistant (MDR) strains of Streptococcus mutans isolated from human carious teeth.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The present study was envisaged to isolate immunomodulatory proteins from raw garlic, and examine their effects on certain cells of the immune system (lymphocytes, mast cells, and basophils) in relation to mitogenicity and hypersensitivity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Decomposed products are volatile and present in the oils of onion and garlic. They possess antidiabetic, antibiotic, hypocholesterolaemic, fibrinolytic and various other biological actions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Rigor
  • Abstract The objective of this review is to update and assess the clinical evidence based on rigorous trials of the effectiveness of garlic (A. sativum).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pleural Effusion
  • Obstructive or restrictive lung disease, pleural effusions, and tense ascites are common underlying disorders. Less often observed and frequently unrecognized is hypoxia related to diffuse intrapulmonary shunting--the hepatopulmonary syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Meningism
  • Abstract Commercial Allium sativum (garlic) extract was given intravenously to two patients with cryptococcal meningitis and three patients with other types of meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • For example, it has been used in China to treat cryptococcal meningitis.[web.archive.org]

Workup

Malassezia Furfur
  • furfur (25 strains), Candida albicans (18 strains), other Candida sp. (12 strains) as well as 35 strains of various dermatophyte species and compared with the activity of a known antifungal drug, ketoconazole (KTZ).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pleural Effusion
  • Obstructive or restrictive lung disease, pleural effusions, and tense ascites are common underlying disorders. Less often observed and frequently unrecognized is hypoxia related to diffuse intrapulmonary shunting--the hepatopulmonary syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Following 8 weeks treatment with simvastatin plus placebo the reduction in Non-HDL, triglyceride, LDL and total cholesterol following treatment course was statistically highly significant (P[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The experiment was done in four groups namely, 24-h Co-treatment group, 24-h biofilm treatment group, 1-week biofilm group, and 3-week biofilm group. These groups were subjected to microbial viability assay and fluorescence microscopic analysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The nonspecific anti-inflammatory treatment being used in the management of patients with IBD has not changed much since the 1970s and new therapeutic agents are keenly sought.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A sativum was found to be efficient, safe and shortens the duration of treatment. The possible mode of action of A. sativum and the correlation between the clinical and parasitological findings were discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Statistical analysis was performed using IBM SPSS version 20, and Student's paired "t" test was used to compare variables before and after treatment with garlic preparation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • Its etiology is unknown but may result from disordered gut peptide metabolism. Symptoms may be ameliorated by somatostatin and reversed by successful liver transplantation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Helicobacter pylori is a bacterium implicated in the etiology of stomach cancer. The incidence of stomach cancer is lower in individuals and populations with high Allium vegetable intakes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Sulfur deficiency might play a part in the etiology of hypertension, and could be alleviated with supplementation of organosulfur compounds derived from garlic.[dovepress.com]

Epidemiology

  • Accordingly, further clinical and epidemiological studies are required before the role of these plants in the prevention and control of cardiovascular disorders is understood and can be realized. Additional research in this area is recommended.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Designer Foods program lists 40 vegetables, fruits, spices and luxury food items from the standpoint of cancer prevention on the basis of epidemiological research.[doi.org]

  • In the past 2 decades, various epidemiological studies investigated whether garlic can positively modify the risk of gastric cancer. Garlic contains numerous sulfide compounds, including diallyl trisulfide, which have anticarcinogenic properties.[doi.org]

Pathophysiology

  • In our opinion, the impacts of garlic on blood pressure and clinical outcomes may differ between non‐hypertensive and hypertensive patients based on pathophysiology and risk of clinical morbidity due to underlying disease processes.[dx.doi.org]

Prevention

  • Garlic is clearly not a panacea for cancer, but its broad range of beneficial effects are worthy of serious consideration in clinical trials for the prevention and treatment of cancer.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause over time. The antioxidant activity of fresh Allium sativum L.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Experimental and clinical studies confirm that the ancient experience with beneficial effects of garlic holds validity even in prevention of cardiovascular disorders and other metabolic ills.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It is concluded that garlic has potential in the prevention and control of cardiovascular disorders.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] these novel sulfoxides from garlic accumulates a great deal of new chemistry in the Allium sulfide field, and future pharmacological investigations of these compounds will aid the development of natural, healthy foods and anti-cancer agents that may prevent[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
