In vitro anti-proliferative and apoptotic activity of different fractions of Artemisia armeniaca

DNA fragmentation, increased protein levels of Bax and cleavage of the poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) protein confirmed the induction of apoptosis in cells after a 48-h exposure to the CH2Cl2 fraction of A. armeniaca.

Artemisia vulgaris essential oil nanoemulsions (AVEO-NE), a novel anti-angiogenic agent and safe apoptosis inducer in MCF-7 human cancer cells

AVEO-NE can potentially be employed as a safe cell-dependent anti-breast cancer drug delivery system and exhibited significant cell-selective cytotoxic, apoptotic, antioxidant, and antioxidant activities by up-regulating Cas-9, CAT, and SOD gene expression.

Green synthesis of silver nanoparticles using Artemisia turcomanica leaf extract and the study of anti-cancer effect and apoptosis induction on gastric cancer cell line (AGS)

It was inferred that biologically synthesized silver nanoparticles induced apoptosis, and showed a cytotoxic and anti-cancer effect against gastric cancer cell lines in a dose- and time-dependent manner.

Antifungal and Drug Efflux Inhibitory Activity of Selected Flavonoids Against Candida albicans and Candida krusei

Epicatechin and ferulic acid might serve as chemical templates for development of novel antifungal agents and Ferulic acid may restore drug sensitivity to C. krusei where resistance to azoles has been implicated to be through antIFungal drug efflux.

The Cytotoxic Effect of Ethanolic Extract of Pistacia Khinjuk Leaf onHeLa and MCF-7 Cancerous Cell Lines

It is confirmed that the target target for the second phase of the MCF-7 competition will be £25m, with a target completion date of May 2018.


Analysis of A. absinthium essential oil by GC-MS discovered two major compounds; camphor and fenchone which may be involved in the biological activity of the plant extract that showed antibacterial and antifungal activities.

In vitro evaluation of cytotoxic activity of flower, leaf, stem and root extracts of five Artemisia species

This study revealed that A. absinthium and A. vulgaris may have a great potential to explore new anticancer drugs, and was found to have higher cytotoxic effect on MCF7 cell with an IC50 value of 221.5 and >500 μg/ml, respectively.

Effect of Origanum syriacum, Hibiscus sabdariffa, Thymus vulgaris and Pelargonium graveolens Extracts on Human Leukemia THP-1 Cells in Vitro

The author states that the aim of the book was to provide a history of Arabic literature and to contribute towards the humanizing of the language.



The antibacterial activity of 27 southern African members of the Combretaceae

Combretum erythrophyllum contains at least 14 antibacterial compounds and some of these have higher activity than currently used antibiotics. Other members of the Combretaceae were therefore examined
