Abstract: To evaluate antimicrobial activity of a new nitrochalcone (NC-E08) against Candida albicans and Streptococcus mutans, and its toxicity. Materials & methods: Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimum bactericidal concentration/minimum fungicidal concentration (MFC) were determined against C. albicans and S. mutans, as well as antibiofilm potential and toxicity (human gingival fibroblast and Galleria mellonella). Infection and treatment were performed in G. mellonella. Results & conclusion: NC-E08 showed antimicrobial activity in C. albicans (MIC: 0.054 mM) and S. mutans (MIC: 0.013 mM); 10xMIC treatment reduced 4.0 log10 biofilms for both strains and there was a reduction in survival of mixed biofilms of C. albicans and S. mutans (6.0 and 4.0 log10, respectively). NC-E08 showed no cytotoxicity in human gingival fibroblast cells and G. mellonella. NC-E08 after larval infection protected them 90% (p<0.05). Thus, is a promising one for the prevention and treatment of S. mutans and C. albicans infections.
