This study examined the in vitro lethal potential of helianthemum lippii acetate and methanol extracts of Helianthemum lippii L. Both extracts proved to be potent as regard to their lethal effects on A. The ethyl acetate was more promising with cumulative lethality.

It showed a highly significant lethal percentage along the duration of treatment.

Helianthemum lippii - Flora of Qatar

The analysis of the more helianthemum lippii ethyl acetate extract revealed the presence of 2. There are 2 life cycle stages in this environmental amoeba, an infective trophozoite and a resilient cyst [ 1 ].


Trophozoites live on a variety of bacteria, when environmental conditions helianthemum lippii unfavorable; the organism encysts. In the cyst form, the amoeba is capable of surviving up to a year and helianthemum lippii resistant to temperature and pH [ 2 ].

The first signs are inflammation with redness, epithelial defects and photophobia, edema, pain due to radial neuritis, epithelial loss, and stromal abscess formation with vision-threatening consequences [ 3 ].

Helianthemum lippii (L.) — The Plant List

The helianthemum lippii characteristic clinical feature is the presence of a ring-like stromal infiltrate, thought to correspond to the infiltrating inflammatory cells [ 6 ]. It is typically associated with the use of contact lenses [ 4 ] which seems to be the most important factor.

Treatment of Acanthamoeba keratitis regimen includes combination therapy which uses biocides, such as biguanides, chlorhexidine, and polyhexamethylene biguanides, or in combination with diamidines which are effective in the treatment [ 6 ].

Resistance to chemotherapeutic agents is probably the helianthemum lippii factor contributing to the increase in cases that may result in loss of vision.

In an effort to improve the therapy, medicinal plants are used as a source of new agents with high activity and low toxicity. Extracts and essential oils were effective in controlling the growth of a wide variety of microorganisms, including bacteria, parasites, yeasts, and filamentous fungi.

Helianthemum lippii (L.) Dum.Cours.

Medicinal plants such as Thymus [ 7 ], Salvia staminea [ 8 ], Ipomoea sp. Cistaceae family is indigenous to the Mediterranean helianthemum lippii and comprises species, including Helianthemum H.

The style at the center is tipped with a large stigma. The fruit is a helianthemum lippii containing many seeds.

Lethal Effects of Helianthemum lippii (L.) on Acanthamoeba castellanii Cysts in Vitro

In the Mediterranean they are associated with Terfeziaceaethe desert truffles. Together, plant and fungus may have a beneficial helianthemum lippii on the arid local landscapes, preventing soil erosion and desertification.

Some symbiotic pairs include Helianthemum salicifolium and the truffle Tirmania nivea, and H. This fungus is not host-specific, and it often associates with oaksas well.


Some studies suggest that Helianthemum and oaks growing together in a habitat may "share" their mycorrhizae.
