Abstract

SUMMARY

The hypocholesteraemic compounds benzmalecene and triparanol inhibited multiplication of certain bacteria (especially Gram-positive organisms), protozoa, algae and ascomycetes but not other higher fungi. Oleic acid (or methyl oleate) annulled the inhibition in bacteria, algae, protozoa and a yeast.
