Projects

EU Structural Funds and INTERREG projects

  • ERDF project “Assessment of the potential of crops species of local origin and obtaining species for use in producing special dietetic food products”. Duration: 2011–2013. Result: During the research, tracked several biochemical indicators in body both with and without special diet.

Bilateral projects

  • Bilateral project of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and Latvian Academy of Sciences “Free radicals and elements in inflammatory and tumours”. Duration: 2010–2012. Result: Project on the research of products containing natural polyphenols in relation to chemotherapy was prepared.

Projects financed by other international institutions

  • EUREKA No. E!3695 “ANTIOKSIDIABET”. Duration: 2010 – 2011. Result: Impact of combinations of several natural polyphenols (Ginko biloba leaf extract, Green tea extract, Grinvitals Xereloba Plus medicine) on development of secondary pathologies for patients with 2nd type diabetes was established.
