Eucalyptol, carvacrol and thymol represent components of plant essential oils characterized by a wide range of biological effects toward microorganisms, fungi, insects, etc. However, till now only a few investigations have been carried out to study the effects of essential oils and their components on human cells cultured in vitro. The aim of our work was therefore to compare cytotoxic and DNA-damaging effects of eucalyptol, carvacrol and thymol on human leukemic K562 cells cultured in vitro… CONTINUE READING
