Acid-fast bacillus activity of Lantana camala, a plant traditionally used to treat symptoms of tuberculosis. 

Tuberculosis remains a catastrophic public health problem. Many Ugandan communities use medicinal plants to treat various ailments, including respiratory ailments. There are allegations that some people are able to cure tuberculosis. Confirmation of some of these claims may lead to the discovery of lead compounds for the development of drugs to treat tuberculosis.

Plants are an effective source of chemotherapeutic agents for a wide range of infectious diseases, and there is a growing interest in the development of extracellular agents. Many communities in East Africa in general, especially in Uganda, tend to use plants to treat various ailments, including respiratory ailments. There are allegations that some people are able to cure tuberculosis. Lantana camala is one of the plants known to cure tuberculosis and is widespread in the southwestern part of Uganda. L. camara is a shrub of the Verbenaceae family.

It is very aggressive and now takes over most of the plants where it was introduced. Its growth poses a threat to other biodiversity. The combination is split L leaf extraction. Camara is reported to have antimicrobial, fungicidal, insecticidal and nematicidal activity.

There are also reports that isolated lantana compounds extracted can be used as herbicides and have been tested in water hyacinth for some success. It has also been reported that verbacoside, a compound extracted from extracted lantana has been shown to have antimicrobial properties. immunosuppressive and anti tumor activities. The use of lantana oil in the treatment of itchy skin and as an antiseptic for wounds with and without leprosy and scabies is reported.

The use of lantana in traditional medicine to treat cancer, chicken pox, measles, asthma, ulcers, inflammation, eczema, tumors, high blood pressure, bilious fever, catarrhal diseases, tetanus, tetanus, rheumatism, malaria and atoxy gastric viscera, are also reported. In this study we investigated the antimycobacterial activity of leaf components from L. camara

 

Plants have become a source of effective medicine for various ailments. Globally, there is a growing interest in the development of drugs of plant origin. Lantana Kamala (Verbenaceae)

Best known as Lantana is one of the plants known for its high therapeutic effect.

This is a straight or indirect living shrub that can reach a height of 23 feet [23 m] and form dense undergrowth. The leaves are light, oval or oval, facing the stem.

When fully ripe, the fruit becomes fleshy, oval, purple or black and can be up to 5 mm long. The bark of the lantana stem is softened and used as an ingredient in leprosy and other skin rashes. Boil freshly harvested leaves and place them on top to relieve inflammation.

 leaves fragrant, mint flavored, naturally cool, anti-inflammatory (can reduce inflammation), antipyretic, sweating, antipyretic, acute pectoralis, stimulants, tonics, and wounds. There is healing.

1. rheumatism

2. cuts

3. Ulcers
