  title={Beneficial Properties of Pumpkin Seed Oil as an Antioxidant Nutraceutical},
  author={Nilutpal Sharma Bora},
The seeds of pumpkin are highly popular as an edible delicacy in different countries of the world and possess a high antioxidant value along with anti-diabetic, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. The oil from this seed is also documented to contain high phenolic content which translates to its high antioxidant capability. Pumpkin seed oil has been envisaged as a preservative and functional ingredient in many foods, cosmetics and nutraceutical 
Pumpkin (Cucurbita maxima) seed oil: chemical composition, antioxidant activities and its authentication analysis
Pumpkin seed oil (PSO) has been known as functional food oil due to some bioactive components contained such as phenolics and tocopherols with beneficial effects to human health including

Medicinal and biological potential of pumpkin: an updated review
Various medicinal and biological potentials of pumpkin can impart further research developments with this plant for human health benefits, according to the present article.
Chemical and Nutritional Characterization of Seed Oil from Cucurbita maxima L. (var. Berrettina) Pumpkin
The nutritional composition of pumpkin native to central Italy, locally known as “Berrettina” (Cucurbita maxima L.), was evaluated and the lipid fraction of seed oil was characterized, and the triacylglycerol (TAG) was thoroughly studied by using a stereospecific procedure to obtain the intrapositional fatty acid composition.
Nutritional and Lipid Composition Analysis of Pumpkin Seed (Cucurbita maxima Linn.)
Pumpkin (Curcurbita maxima) is a popular vegetable in our country. This plant is locally known as “Mistikumra”. The seeds of pumpkin are rich in oil and nutrients. The nutritional compositions of
Oil and tocopherol content and composition of pumpkin seed oil in 12 cultivars.
The study showed potential for pumpkin seed oil from all 12 cultivars to have high oxidative stability that would be suitable for food and industrial applications, as well as high unsaturation and tocopherol content that could potentially improve the nutrition of human diets.
Purification and characterization of Moschatin, a novel type I ribosome-inactivating protein from the mature seeds of pumpkin (Cucurbita moschata), and preparation of its immunotoxin against human melanoma cells
Using the anti-human melanoma McAb Ng76, a novel immunotoxin Moschatin-Ng76 was prepared successfully and it efficiently inhibited the growth of targeted melanoma cells M21 with a IC50 of 0.04 nM, 1500 times lower than that of freeMoschatin, implying that Moschlin could be used as a new potential anticancer agent.
