SELECTED ARTICLES

Study found potent antiviral activity against HSV-1 (herpes) from a methanolic extract of Hypericum mysorense, a methanolic extract of Hypericum hookerianum , and an acetone and chloroform extract of Usnea complanta. Virus yield reduction assays revealed Hypericum mysorense and Hypericum hookerianum as the only plant extracts to offer 100% protection from viral particles.

In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study, the clinical efficacy and safety of two different extracts of St. John's wort were investigated in 147 male and female outpatients suffering from mild or moderate depression.
The antiviral properties of hypericin (SJW) were shown against a large number of viruses including HIV, influenza virus A, herpes simplex, bovine diarrhea virus (BVDV), hepatitis C, duck reovirus, and bronchitis virus. Hypericin (SJW) seems to be particularly effective against enveloped viruses by targeting and modifying viral proteins. This effect is enhanced by light, which not only inactivates the virus, but can also prevent fusion of the virus with the cell membrane of the host.
