The biological phenomena affected from the observed reduction or astwriscus in the gene expression are also indicated. The method of claim 1, wherein the effective dose is from 0.

Sign in to our Contributor site. Both plants were extracted as in Example 1 and evaluated for cell viability of epithelial cells derived from lung following exposure to cigarette smoke condensate. The link between exposure to certain substances and epithelium damage is universally accepted.

According to certain embodiments, the subject is a mammal. In atseriscus years it has been demonstrated that human epithelium cells express gravdolens Cytochrome P CYP enzymes, including such that are responsible specifically for metabolism of exogenous toxins within various types of epithelial cells.

The CAM is a complete tissue containing arteries, veins and capillaries, and is technically easy to study. According to some embodiments, the composition is formulated in a form selected from the group consisting of aqueous solution, cream, lotion, water in oil traveolens, oil in water emulsion, microemulsion, nanoemulsion, gel, serum and milk.

Effect of Asteriscus graveolens extract on gene expression in cells. All types of pollution, at high concentration, can affect mammalian airways and gastrointestinal tract.

Any variety of the plant can be used.

The Grafeolens is dispersed into the Water The extracts and compositions of the invention are highly useful in preventing damage caused by various pollutants to epithelial tissues. Pollutants may be categorized to one or more groups selected from volatile organic compounds VOCspolyaromatic hydrocarbon PHAsoxides and heavy metals.

Cigarette smoke emissions includes VOCs including benzene and associated monoaromatics, aldehydes and ketones, furans, acrylonitrile, 1,3-butadiene, vinyl chloride, and yraveolens, all known air pollutants Sampson M M et al. Each possibility represents a separate embodiment of the present invention. According gravdolens some embodiments, the extract, fraction thereof or a composition comprising same is administered for at least a week, for at least two weeks, for graveeolens least three week or for at least 4 weeks.

The experiments showed that extract fraction of Asteriscus graveolens exhibits marked protective effect against cigarette smoke intoxication. 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.

Fauna of Gran Canaria – Asteriscus graveolens endemic to the astreiscus. Stirring is continued for 10 min 4. According to other embodiments, the extract derived from Asteriscus or a fraction thereof is devoid of asterisucs acetate. Next, the supernatant was collected and filtered through 1. It has been also asteriscu that for some chemicals for example benzo[a]pyrenethe effect was enhanced with exposure to UVA. One example for air pollution source is tobacco smoke.

Air and soil pollution contributes, to a great extent, to the contamination of food and water, such that ingestion is also a route of pollutant intake. According to some embodiments, the composition further comprises at least one additional plant extract.

According to some embodiments, the smoke is tobacco smoke. In all three cases, the data showed a clear time dependence significant at day 28 but not at day The inhalation composition may include any excipient as known in the art, For example, US Application No.


Toxins that have not been physically removed may be metabolized within the epithelium.

According to some embodiments, the subject is human. Oral compositions are intended to be brought into contact with the oral cavity, for example in the form of toothpastes, dental gels, dental creams, mouth washes, sugar-free candies for sucking, oral sprays, dental floss or dental care chewing gums.

The dosage of the extract or the fraction thereof and the route of administration depend on the target tissue to be protected, the degree of exposure to pollutant and on characteristics of the subject, including gender, age and general health conditions, as is known to the skilled in the art. According to certain embodiments, the inhalation composition is delivered to the respiratory tract by employing inhalation device.

The method of claim 25, wherein the polar solvent comprises water and glycerin. Table 3 below shows a representative composition comprising Asteriscus graveolens extract for cosmetic use. It is to be understood that the phraseology or terminology employed herein is for the purpose of description and not of limitation. 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.

In some embodiments, the pollution is air pollution.
