Abstract: RESUMO: "Plantas tradicionalmente utilizadas na terapia da diabetes -fi tomedicamentos como inibidores da atividade α-amilase". Diabetes mellitus é uma desordem metabólica caracterizada pela hiperglicemia crônica. Existem diversas estratégias terapêuticas no tratamento da diabetes Tipo 2. A inibição da atividade da α-amilase é apenas uma possibilidade de reduzir os níveis de glicose posprandiais. Nos nossos estudos in vitro pudemos demonstrar que diferentes plantas, especialmente as tradicionalmente usadas em … Show more

“…The scientific knowledge about useful plants, particularly the ones for therapeutic use, can in turn potentially improve people's use of these plants and lifestyle, leading to an improvement of the quality of the medicinal products (Funke & Melzig, 2006;Leitão et al, 2006;Barbosa-Filho et al, 2007;Saúde-Guimarães & Faria, 2007;Barbosa-Filho et al, 2008). Furthermore, predatory extraction of medicinal plants has led to the reduction its natural populations (Almeida & Albuquerque, 2002).…”

“…A utilização das plantas medicinais é uma das mais antigas armas empregadas para o tratamento de enfermidades humanas e muito da informação a respeito de seu uso vem através da sabedoria popular (Funke & Melzig, 2006;Biavatti et al, 2007;Oliveira et al, 2007;Agra et al, 2007). Dados da Organização Mundial de Saúde (WHO, 2002) mostram que cerca de 80% da população mundial faz uso de algum tipo de planta na busca de alívio de alguma sintomatologia dolorosa ou desagradável (WHO, 2002).…”

“…Indeed, the search for new pharmacologically active agents, through the screening of natural sources such as microbial fermentations and plant extracts, has led to the discovery of many clinically useful drugs that now play major roles in the treatment of human diseases (Yue-Zong, 1998;Leitão et al, 2006;Funke;Melzig 2006). However, whilst Brazilian folk medicine is substantial, our knowledge of the pharmacological activities and chemical compositions of plant extracts used therein is lacking and demands enhanced levels of scientifi c attention from local natural product chemists Barbosa-Filho et al, 2005;BarbosaFilho et al, 2006a;Barbosa-Filho et al, 2006b) The present paper deals with the screening of plants from Brazilian folk medicine for antimicrobial activity.…”
