The occurrence of mycotoxins in wheat from western Romania and histopathological impact as effect of feed intake
A high incidence of mycotoxins produced by Fusarium species have been recorded (DON and ZON) in wheat samples harvested in Western Romania, and histopathological evaluation revealed significant tissue lesions in liver and kidney of rats after one month of feeding with natural contaminated wheat.

Nutritive quality of romanian hemp varieties (Cannabis sativa L.) with special focus on oil and metal contents of seeds
Hempseed belonging to the five Romanian varieties are rich source of nutrients and unsaturated oil easily digestible by the body, but the presence of Cd concentrations above the upper limit puts a question mark over the use of seeds in various food products. Expand
Use of ATR-FTIR spectroscopy to detect the changes in extra virgin olive oil by adulteration with soybean oil and high temperature heat treatment
Abstract The structural changes induced in extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) by adulteration with soybean oil (SBO) and heat treatment at 185°C for 4 and 8 h were investigated using Attenuated TotalExpand
The use of FT-IR spectroscopy in the identification of vegetable oils adulteration.
Expensive high quality vegetable oils and animal fats are susceptible to adulteration. Substitution of high quality and expensive oils and fats with cheaper and inferior quality oils or fats andExpand
Tracking antioxidant properties and color changes in low-sugar bilberry jam as effect of processing, storage and pectin concentration
Overall, the results indicated that bilberry jams can also represent a good source of antioxidant compounds, although compared to the fruit, important losses seem to occur. Expand
Physico-chemical comparison of betulinic acid, betulin and birch bark extract and in vitro investigation of their cytotoxic effects towards skin epidermoid carcinoma (A431), breast carcinoma (MCF7)
The cytotoxic activity indicated a high proliferation inhibition for the birch tree extract but was still comparable with betulinic acid and betulin. Expand
Phytochemical Characterization and Evaluation of the Antimicrobial, Antiproliferative and Pro-Apoptotic Potential of Ephedra alata Decne. Hydroalcoholic Extract against the MCF-7 Breast Cancer Cell
The results show that the hydroalcoholic extract of the aerial part of Ephedra alata Decne contains polyphenolic phytocompounds and elicits antioxidant activity, and presents antiproliferative, pro-apoptotic, and cytotoxic potential against the MCF-7 human breast cancer cell line. Expand
Geographic information systems (GIS) and entomological research : a review
The results demonstrate the usefulness of GIS in ecological research aimed at characterizing community interactions, specifically niche partitioning among competing species. Expand
Assessment of inhibitory potential of essential oils on natural mycoflora and Fusarium mycotoxins production in wheat
Based on proven antifungal and antimycotoxin effects as well as their antioxidant properties, the essential oils could be recommended as natural preservatives for stored cereals. Expand
Synergistic Antifungal, Allelopatic and Anti-Proliferative Potential of Salvia officinalis L., and Thymus vulgaris L. Essential Oils
Thyme and sage EOs exhibited in vitro anti-proliferative activity on two melanoma cell lines, namely A375 human melanoma and B164A5 mouse melanoma alone, as well as in combination, and SEO was most effective in terms of decreasing the cell viability of murine and human melanomas cell lines when compared to TEO.
