The objective of the project are plant products with the effects on neurodegenerative and other stress diseases, capable of augmenting the resistance of organism against stress diseases and augmenting the resistance of organism to resist to changed environment. Many plants, often called medicinal plants, produce such products. The target of the project is focused at their growth and use. This is the reason for setting this project as collaborative one between two research institutions and a small company. The research institutions will focus at developing ways of isolation and investigation of active components in the studied plants, and the small company will focus at growing the target plants and at practical use of the results of the collaborative investigation. The above mentioned plant products will be isolated by modern technologies, e.g. by supercritical carbon dioxide extraction, water steam distillation, by using membrane processes, and by other methods, and, finally, incorporated into the novel products.
