Nutritional supplements bioactivity, functional properties and safety: in vitro & in vivo studies
Unit:  2.5.
Animal and cell culture models of skin homeostasis and repair, and cancer

This section illustrates the in vivo and in vitro experimental models that have been developed to evaluate the bioactivity of nutritional supplements, while provide a better understanding in the complexity of the wound healing process and relative diseases, such as psoriasis. In addition, the importance of carcinogenicity testing combined with animal models in assessing the bioactivity of a compound for cancer chemoprevention, is highlighted.
