Project: Identification of the estrogenic activity of plants used as nutraceuticals and in phylotherapy.

project duration
01-OCT-99 – 30-SEP-03
The aim of this project is to identify the estrogenic activity in a number of selected Western-type and Chinese plants, using selective extraction, chromatographic profiling (HPLC) and fractionation guided by screening for estrogenic activity via sensitive in vitro bio-assays. We expect that our work in this field will identify new uses and extend scientifically-supported exploitation of the investigated plants.
