Aim: This study is focused on the activity of the essential oil from kelatin and effect of its components on various types of blood cancerous cells. Materials and methods: HD(Hydrodistillation) and HS-SPME(Headspace solid-phase microextraction) methods for obtaining extract and essential oil from kelatin were used. Analysis of the essential oil was performed using a Hewlett
Purpose: The aggressive breast cancer pathology is still confronted with low benefits of approved therapeutics. Recent research inclines to investigate the prevention and limitation of the disease by phytocompound rich plant extracts. Lemon balm, Melissa officinalis L. (MO) is frequently used for neurovegetative symptoms, and seems to have potential benefits as chemopreventive in cancer. The
Purpose: Melissa officinalis L. (MO) or lemon balm belonging to Lamiaceae family is widely used in european countries in the treatment of gastro-intestinal disorders and central nervous system (CNS) disorders and also exhibits antibacterial, antiviral and antiproliferative effects.

Aim The aim of the study were (1) to evaluate the chemical composition of Anethum graveolens essential oil, collected from the western side of Romania, and (2) to identified if some of those compounds could be theoretically valuable for skin care. Materials and methods The chemical extraction and analysis of Anethum graveolens essential oil was
Aim We aimed to develop and physicochemically/biologically evaluate semisolid formulations containing gold nanoparticles loaded with betulinic acid (BA). Materials and methods Betulinic acid-conjugated gold nanoparticles were incorporated in three types of semisolid pharmaceutical formulations: nanoemulsion, oleogel and hydrogel. Each nanoformulation was prepared as blank, with AuNP and with AuNP+BA, respectively, and was physicochemically analyzed through
Aim The study focused on the development and assessment of semisolid formulations with betulin-conjugated gold nanoparticles. Materials and methods Three semisolid formulations containing betulin (Bet) and gold nanoparticles (AuNP) were developed, namely: 1) nanoemulsion, 2) oleogel and 3) chitosan-based hydrogel. Physico-chemical analysis of all nanoformulations (blank, with AuNP and with AuNP+Bet, respectively) was conducted through
The Argania spinosa fruits oil, commercially named Argan oil, is considered to be one of the most precious, rare, expensive and nourishing vegetal oil . From here, there is a great temptation to be adulterated . In order to be avoided its adulteration, this study is trying to find out another species, geographically more spread,
