The primary constituent in cloves is eugenol, a potent antibacterial agent. In cellular studies, cloves demonstrated inhibition via increased membrane permeability and oxidative stress against Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Staphylococcus aureus. Influencing the permeability of bacterial membranes increases both their sensitivity to antibiotics and apoptosis. Preliminary in vivo studies demonstrate antiulcer activity (for example, ethanol-induced), with the possible mechanism being an increase in gastric mucous secretion.
