Isolation of methyl gallate and evaluation of the antibacterial and antineoplastic activity of some extracts ofKlainedoxa gabonensis Pierre ex Engl.
Klainedoxa gabonensis Pierre ex Engl. is a plant that traditional Congolese therapists use for treating many diseases. It is particularly used for a disease locally known as “mwandza” dermatitis, for which modern treatments are still unsuccessful. A pharmacological screening revealed antibacterial and antitumoral activities. The chemical analysis of an organic extract isolated the methyl gallate.
