Asteriscus graveolens Less.

J Investigative Dermatol Start Here No thanks. Many of the compounds found in cigarette smoke are also found in air-polluted cities and industrial areas. Solids were removed by centrifugation at rpm for 30 min. In sateriscus organs and tissues, the epithelium serves as part of the protective barrier against harmful physical forces, chemicals, pollutants, pathogens and other undesired agents.

The wrinkle grey scale WGS was evaluated for the extract light bars and placebo dark bars. According to certain embodiments, the oral care composition is in a form selected from the group consisting of toothpaste, dental cream, gel, powder, mouth wash, breath freshener, gingival massage cream, gargling tablet, lozenge and chewing gum. Exemplary routes include the natural expulsion of contaminated cells as part of skin’s organic turn-over and dissolving of toxins from interstitial spaces and transferring these back onto the surface via sweat.

According to additional embodiments, the composition is an oral care composition further comprising diluents, excipient or carrier suitable for oral care. According to some embodiment, the composition comprises a bubbling agent as an additive.

For example, formaldehyde is now recognized worldwide as both a carcinogen and a skin sensitizer. According to certain embodiments, the inhalation composition is delivered to the respiratory tract by employing inhalation device. These nucleotides are detected using a horseradish-peroxidase detection system and a non-toxic colorimetric substrate.

Already have an account? According to certain exemplary embodiments, the pollutant-protecting components are extracted from the A. Oxidative stress has also been implicated in a wide variety of degenerative diseases such as atherosclerosis, heart attacks, stroke, chronic inflammatory diseases rheumatoid arthritiscataract, central nervous system disorders Parkinson and Alzheimer’s diseasesage related disorders and cancer. According to certain embodiments, the aerial part is a stem or a leaf.

A set of 16 questions regarding variety of skin parameters was used to evaluate the treatment effect. The extract fraction thereby improved the skin appearance and vitality and reduced premature skin aging.


The present invention is based in part on the unexpected discovery that a fraction of Asteriscus graveolens extract, soluble in a polar solvent, is useful in protecting against toxic challenges met by the skin and other epithelial-cell comprising tissues that come in contact with exogenous pollutant, for example lung tissue.

According to some embodiments, the cosmetic composition further comprises a cosmetically acceptable diluent, carrier or excipient. According to certain embodiments, the extract or the fraction thereof is essentially devoid of oils. A cells were cultured in a culture medium and the medium was then removed and replaced by a medium containing 0. According to yet additional embodiments, the epithelial tissue forms part of at least one of pharynx and larynx. Nevertheless, similar effects are also observed with long-term exposure to lower pollutant concentrations.

According to some embodiments, the ratio of the at least one fraction of water extract of A.

The inhalation composition may be obtained in powder form and may be used to graveolejs capsules, which may be later employed for inhalation. Tobacco smoke cigarette smoke being the most common type is also considered a source of air pollution and comprises up to compounds and toxins known to be detrimental to human health.

The effect of the extract was tested at concentrations of 0. Epithelium is one of the four basic types of animal tissues, along with connective tissue, muscle tissue and nervous tissue. Examples of such compounds are aliphatic hydrocarbons, ethyl acetate, glycol ethers and acetone.

WoRMS – World Register of Marine Species – Asteriscus graveolens (Forssk.) Less.

gaveolens The term does not encompass food products dedicated for nutrition. According to certain embodiments, the pollutant is a smoke-related substance, particularly a smoke-related substance that damages epithelial cells.

Another example is the pollutant chemicals found in tobacco smoke. Emphysema-like lesions have also been observed in mice exposed to nitrogen dioxide The epithelium possesses a limited active toxin defense including physical removal of exogenous toxins.

Chemistry and Biodiversity 9: According to other embodiments, the inhalation composition is administered through an air filtration system. A bubbling agent is an agent that emits carbon dioxide gas when contacting liquid with a purpose, for example, to burst a capsule or graveolenss intimate contact of sateriscus capsule’s content with the surrounding material outside of the capsule.


As is shown in FIG. According to some embodiments, the cosmetically acceptable or dermatological carrier is selected from the group consisting of a liposome, a micelle structure, a microcapsule, and any combination thereof.

The severity of each reaction after 1 and 5 minutes was recorded. We couldn’t load this image at the moment.

General Comment on Time-Dependency: Effect of an Asteriscus graveolens Extract on Gene Expression in Keratinocytes Asteriscus Graveolens extract was produced as described in Example 1 and used for evaluating its effect on gene expression profile.

In some embodiments, the pollution is air asteriscud. According to certain embodiments, the human subject is exposed to tobacco smoke. On day 10 of development, eggs were removed from the incubator and candled to determine the viability of the embryo. All of these exogenous aggravations must challenge the epithelium before entering into the body.

Sign In We’re Sorry! Defense against skin toxins depends on several factors, including behavioral routines i. According to further embodiments, the aerial part is selected from the group consisting of a stem, a leaf, a seed, a flower, a fruit and any combination thereof.

The skin hydration was measured at the corner of the mouth FIG. There is an ongoing attempt to develop plant-based compositions for treating skin disorders and damages.

The composition can be used as a mouth wash, toothpaste, breath freshener etc. Oxides, such as sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide form another group of molecules known to exist both in air pollution and in cigarette smoke. Without wishing to be bound by any specific theory or mechanism of action, the extract of the present invention is effective in increasing the tolerance of the epithelial-cell comprising tissue to the pollutants by decreasing the epithelial cells response or sensitivity to said pollutants.
