Bergamot Oil: Botany, Production, Pharmacology
Bergamot essential oil (BEO) is the result of the mechanical manipulation (cold pressing) of the exocarp (flavedo) of the hesperidium of Citruslimon (L.) Osbeck Bergamot Group (synonym Citrus ×
Dietary Intake of Coumarins and Furocoumarins through Citrus Beverages: A Detailed Estimation by a HPLC-MS/MS Method Combined with the Linear Retention Index System
The HPLC-MS/MS method here proposed, in combination with the linear retention index system, represents an innovative analytical strategy for the characterization of OHCs in citrus beverages and may be considered as informative data useful for the regulatory authorities in the emission of new opinions and for a potential new regulation in this field.
Reactor accident chemistry an update
Abstract A review and discussion of some of the literature on the subject of serious nuclear reactor accidents. This review addresses some biological issues such as the influence of dose rate on the
Identification of lead chemotherapeutic agents from medicinal plants against blood flukes and whipworms
The efficacy against multiple phylogenetically distinct parasites and different life stages, especially the schistosomulum where praziquantel is ineffective, makes isomyristicin and bergapten novel scaffolds for broad-spectrum anthelmintic drug development that could be used for the control of helminths infecting humans and animals.
Risk Assessment of Fluoride Intake from Tea in the Republic of Ireland and its Implications for Public Health and Water Fluoridation
It is concluded that the culture of habitual tea drinking in the RoI indicates that the total cumulative dietary fluoride intake in the general population could readily exceed the levels known to cause chronic fluoride intoxication.
Citrus bergamia essential oil: from basic research to clinical application
Clinical studies on the therapeutic applications of BEO exclusively focus on the field of aromatherapy, suggesting that its use can be useful for reducing anxiety and stress.
Spectroscopic fingerprint of tea varieties by surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy
The novel spectroscopic fingerprinting technique combined with PCA is an accurate, rapid and simple methodology for the assessment of tea types based on the type of processing and cultivation differences.


Accidental bullous phototoxic reactions to bergamot aromatherapy oil.
Two patients with localized and disseminated bullous phototoxic skin reactions developing within 48 to 72 hours after exposure to bergamot aromatherapy oil and subsequent ultraviolet exposure are described.
Effects of three alkoxypsoralens on voltage gated ion channels in Ranvier nodes.
In future 5,8-EOP may well prove to be a particularly suitable K+-channel blocker for the symptomatic therapy of multiple sclerosis and other demyelinating diseases.
Alkoxypsoralens, novel nonpeptide blockers of Shaker-type K+ channels: synthesis and photoreactivity.
A series of psoralens and structurally related 5,7-disubstituted coumarins was synthesized and investigated for their K+ channel blocking activity as well as for their phototoxicity to Artemia salina
Autoimmune Neuromyotonia (Isaacs' Syndrome): An Antibody‐mediated Potassium Channelopathy

Criteria for defining a disease as autoimmune, modified for an antibody-mediated effector mechanism, can be restated as follows: evidence for a circulating antibody to a defined antigen; passive transfer of the physiological and morphological characteristics to experimental animals by injection of patients’ immunoglobulins.
Episodic ataxia/myokymia syndrome is associated with point mutations in the human potassium channel gene, KCNA1
Mutation analysis of the KCNA1 coding region in families identified four different missense point mutations present in the heterozygous state, indicating that EA/myokymia can result from mutations in this gene.
