Résumé

Nous avons proposé de présenter au symposium Phyt’arom de Grasse 2017 le sujet du traitement de l’infection urinaire, et cela au vu des dernières notions concernant le mode de traitement d’une infection: c’est-à-dire en tenant compte du quorum sensing, de l’activité de l’arbutine et de la réalisation du biofilm par les microbes. Le comportement des microbes et le mode d’action de certains phytomédicaments se recoupent et permettent à travers les extraits végétaux d’inhiber les mécanismes de diffusion des microbes de l’arbre urinaire.

Abstract

We proposed the subject for the treatment of urinary tract infection and presented at the Phyt’arom Symposium of Grasse 2017, and this in the light of the latest concepts concerning the mode of treatment of an infection, that is, taking into account the quorum sensing, the activity of arbutin, and the realization of biofilm by microbes. The behavior of microbes and the mode of action of certain phytomedicines overlap and allow through plant extracts to inhibit the diffusion mechanisms of microbes of the urinary tree.
