The aims of the present research were to develop and characterize 4-hydroxycoumarin-loaded liposomes via the determination of encapsulation efficiency, antioxidant capacity, vesicle size, polydispersity index (PDI), zeta potential, conductivity, mobility, density, surface tension, viscosity, and 60-day storage stability. The encapsulation efficienc...

Plants are natural products responsible for many biological activities. It is quite common to use plants that attract attention with their nutritive properties within the scope of complementary medicine. Matricaria species, which have naturally distributed, are among the plants used in traditional medicine. Revealing the biological activities of pl...

This study was designed to investigate the impact of different extraction methods (ultrasound-assisted extraction, maceration, and microwave-assisted extraction) on the content of polyphenols and biological activities of leaf extract of Paeonia daurica subsp. daurica collected in Južni Kučaj (Serbia). The total polyphenol and flavonoid content were...

Traditional plant extraction methods commonly employ hazardous solvents that threaten human health. Considering these, the study sought to explore the efficacy of seven distinct types of apple cider vinegar (ACV) as an alternative solvent for isolating of polyphenols from dry elderberries as a raw material. In the pursuit of identifying the most su...

Steppe peony (Paeonia tenuifolia L., Paeoniaceae) is a perennial, herbaceous plant species which has been widely known for its medicinal use. This study is aimed at the development of P. tenuifolia petal dry methanolic extract-loaded liposomes and the determination of their antioxidant activity. The liposomes were prepared with three different phos...

Relatively simple, but very reliable, one-step qualitative/quantitative HPLC analysis of four key flavonoids, and a phenolcarboxylic acid, has been introduced. For substrate/sample preparations, either triple percolations, using 70% ethanol-water (V/V), or/and ultrasonic bath methanol extractions, were carried out to obtain the desired isolates yie...

The microbiological stability of cosmetic products is crucial, especially in products with high water content, such as creams. Therefore, preservatives are used in order to protect consumers from harmful pathogens that would otherwise invade the cosmetics. Despite their function, the addition of preservatives can be considered controversial in the ...

In this study, antimicrobial activity of essential oils extracted from the aerial flowering parts (herbs) of Hyssopus officinalis subsp. aristatus (Godr.) Nyman (Lamiaceae) collected from five different locations in Montenegro, or purchased in Serbia, were investigated. In addition, their antibacterial activity in combination with antibiotics was s...

Paeonia peregrina Mill. and Paeonia tenuifolia L. are endangered species of herbaceous plants with high ornamental and medicinal values. There are a few natural habitats in Serbia where these plants spontaneously grow: Krivi Vir, Skrobnica, Golina, Pirot, Deliblato Sands, and Sokobanja, in the municipality of Knjaževac. In July 2021, the symptom of...

Dental caries is one of the most prevalent public health problems. It is caused by a well-organized bacterial structure i.e., biofilm, where the cariogenic bacteria Streptococcus mutans is recognized as the primary pathogenic factor. Furthermore, the first phase of dental biofilm onset is predominantly associated to bacteria of the Streptococcus ge...
