Project: Industrial basic research on "Prenylflavonoids in hops"

project duration
01-MAR-03 – 28-FEB-05
Hops (Humulus lupulus L.) contain a series of prenylflavonods that are charcterized, on the one hand by a high estrogenic activity, on the other hand by potent anti-proliferative effects. These biological activities are particularly eneficial with respect to control of complaints, symptoms and diseases associated to the menopause. The respective ratios of active constituents and the biological availibility should be optimized.
