Biological and biochemical activities of active compounds (prescription drugs and natural products) on cells, especially in improving chemotherapy treatments. • Study of cell's biochemistry using analytical methods such as IR spectroscopy, liquid chromatography and enzyme activities. • Activities of combinations of natural products / food supplements prescription drugs, which may result in increased activity (toxicity) or decreased activity (antagonizing effect of prescription treatment). This allows you to assess the safety of taking natural products together with prescription drugs, but also to develop new combination therapies based on natural products and drugs.
