Abstract

The aim of the work was to investigate antitumoral effect of essential oils on cancer cells and their possible protective (antioxidant) effects against hydrogen peroxide-induced cytotoxicity. Also, in vitro antioxidant properties of essential oils and aqueous extracts from wild form and cultivated form of Salvia pisidica were compared.
