Abstract The activity of oleuropein, a phenolic glycoside contained in olive oil, was investigated in vitro against Mycoplasma hominis, Mycoplasma fermentans, Mycoplasma pneumoniae and Mycoplasma pirum. Oleuropein inhibited mycoplasmas at concentrations from 20 to 320 mg/l. The MICs of oleuropein to M. pneumoniae, M. pirum, M. hominis and M. fermentans were 160, 320, 20 and 20 mg/l, respectively.
