Comparison of the gene profiles of the treatment groups to whole transcriptome GSEA revealed that biological processes pertaining to hypoxia Figure 4 a , glycolysis Figure 4 b and epithelial mesenchymal transition EMT, Figure 4 c were enriched.
The GSEA analyses further confirmed that those three biological pathways were found to have an opposite direction in the combined treatment group versus treatment with each ingredient as stand-alone. In the treatment group with a combination of C. The above-mentioned enriched biological pathways flowed by C.
MatTek full thickness reconstructed skin were treated with C. To investigate the role of hypoxia pathway in human skin under the combined treatment of C.
HIF1 is a ubiquitously expressed heterodimeric transcription factor, which is known to be associated with mammalian cells ability to adapt hypoxia conditions  and involved also in skin biological processes, including wound healing and infections.
Glycolysis pathway was evaluated by the same experimental methodology for the marker Phosphfructokinase-1 PFK1 , a key enzyme involves the hydrolysis of ATP, a critical step in determining glycolytic flux and has been correlated with changes in cellular metabolism and physiology . The ability of C. Fibronectin is a key master of the extracellular matrix ECM , forming essential connections between cell surface integrin receptors and structural components of the ECM, enhancing skin cells differentiation, assisting in regeneration and healing .
Figure 5 c indicates that both topical treatment with C. The fear from skin appearance of an old person is the engine of cosmetic industry and therefore, anti-aging products are the gold core of the huge worldwide cosmetic business. The anti-aging cosmetology main perception focus for many years had been on diminishing the typical skin aging symptoms or hiding them using a long list of skincare preparations, including products targeting skin deep wrinkles, fine-lines, age spots, discoloration, loss of skin young appearance related to reduction of moisture, elasticity and glow.
Recently, a new anti-aging strategy has been evolved, proposing to fight against the biological causes beyond the appearance of symptoms, i. Skin aging reflects the accumulation of damaged molecules following skin exposure to a wide range of stressors  . Inflammatory processes are recognized as key mediators of the different pathways leading to skin aging. These process are characterized by enhancement inflammatory cytokine secretion e.
Therefore, lots of research efforts target attenuation of skin inflammation while skin models, such as reconstructed in-vitro skin and human ex-vivo donated skin are used as important research tools    . The new anti-aging strategy, coping not only with skin symptoms, but rather, aiming to affect the biological mechanisms beyond symptoms appearance, has. MatTek full thickness reconstructed skin was treated without or with C.
Then, tissues were homogenized and subjected to immunoblotting for testing a Hypoxia Inducible Factor 1 and b Phosphofructokinase expression levels. Many skin active ingredients are derived from botanical sources including plant extracts and oils.
Some of the plants that are extracted known to be toxic, yet when formulated in moderate dose, i. Hence, more sophisticated treatment strategy can be designed by exploiting a diversity of substances considered as toxic. Furthermore, a combination of several substances might lead to additional positive outcomes, which were not observed on each ingredient as stand-alone. The use of C. Calotropis procera, grows in Dead Sea natural environment as a protected plant.
Choosing Callus technology for plant extraction, in addition to attenuate the expression of toxic compounds, enable a controlled preparation of big amounts of extract in well-ordered quality without threatening the prevalence of a natural specie of its local flora. Plant extraction via callus technology is in line with modern trends and sustainable approach. All of them did not show decrease in vitality parameters viability and apoptosis. Three extract concentrations, at the safe range Figure 1 were chosen for further activity testing in terms of protection against inflammation and irritation, common skin manifestations also relevant to cosmetic treatment.
Acceptable models for inflammation and irritation induction in laboratory are by the addition of LPS and SDS respectively  . Still, clinical tests should be performed on human volunteers in order to support safety and activity claims. Thus, we conclude C. The SDS-induced skin irritation model is an experimental system allows monitoring the ability of the tested item to attenuate the deleterious impact of the SDS strong detergent of the irritant on skin surface.
As expected, the viability decreased and the levels of three measured inflammation markers were significantly increased, following SDS treatment Figure 3. In addition, the vehicle control was not differing from the untreated control. Due to the capability of the new C. Dead Sea minerals are reported in literature for their therapeutic capabilities to treat a variety of skin diseases as well as for their beautifying cosmetic effects   .
In this part of the study the purpose was to test on skin models the effect of a mixture of C. The tests were carried out on skin equivalents. As a first step, a full micro-array gene expression screening was performed. A deep analysis on transcription level of gene expression could give a preliminary prediction of biological process, which might be involved.
Notably, analysis only in gene level is a good starting point, but is not sufficient and additional tests are needed in the protein level. Comparison of the gene profiles of the treatment groups to whole transcriptome GSEA revealed interesting findings, in which biological processes that were significantly enriched, have an opposite direction in the combined treatment group compared to the DSW extract and the C. These biological processes are linked to skin responses to hypoxia, glycolysis and to EMT.
The observed processes can contribute to skin maintenance via better coping with stress, optimizing metabolic balance, and regeneration respectively. For each biological process, a representative biomarker was tested. HIF1 enzyme plays a key role in the cell resistance to hypoxia conditions . Only treatment with the combination of C. Thus, combination of C.
Together with gene expression results, a patent application had been submitted for the unexpected biological activity of this extracts combination patent no. Of note, fibronectin participates in regeneration and healing process and might be related to EMT process . Yet, treatment with C.
In summary, the combination of C. These effects might be in terms of glycolysis and energy production, coping with hypoxia and ECM regeneration. The biological effects of C. Study results on laboratory skin models reveal that C.
Furthermore, a combination of C. Taken together, all presented results suggest that C. Hence, it is recommended for new cosmetic formulae as standalone or in combination with Dead Sea water, in the effort to achieve anti-aging bio-activity that works on the molecular level beyond skin aging symptoms, especially via skin calming effects and skin energy enhancement.
In addition to adhering as closely as possible to the test procedure described in Section 4, validation criteria were identified for the sampling program. A systems audit was conducted by Research Trianc4e Institute Rn at the woodstove test facility during the sampling program. Following submittal of the first draft report RTI conducted a data quality audit. The draft audit report gave this sampling program and the resulting data an acceptable rating with qualifications.
The qualification was lifted fran the audit rating after ES responded to the draft audit report indicating that the validation criteria specified in the QAPP would be canpared to the actual sampling and stove operating condi- tions. The comparison must be made with an understanding of the relative importance of the cr3 terj. A brief discussion of the criteria is included at the end of Appendix E in response to canments made in the auditors report.
Tables 7a through 7e present a summary of sampling conditions for each of the samples collected. The parameters considered ncst critical were included in the table and used to characterize the data from each sample run. No isokinetic sampling was considered to make the results of the corresponding sample unacceptable u. A total mass catch of less than 30 milligrams was considered significant enough to require qualifying the data if the sample volume was below the criteria volume.
If either the mass catch was in excess of 30 milligrams or the sample volume was larger than the criteria volume then the results were considered acceptable. Several of the sample train validation criteria were satisfactory for all samples collected. These included post test leak rate, condenser outlet temperature, and orsat leak rate.
Zero and span drift corrections were made assunu. These data were entered into the woodstove program Appendix C. Several test burns that do not reliably reflect actual anisslons accord- ing to Oregon stove operating procedures must be qualified.
Sampling stopped after minutes. These data were not entirely deleted fran the results because they can be con- sidered useful for test method evaluation. The dilution tunnel flow criteria were neglected during this test program.
Most flows were greatly in excess of the This criteria was not used to qualify or invalidate any samples. Those blanks were for use by the lab in making blank corrections. Train blanks were collected to demonstrate the efficiency of sample recov- ery and possible contamination of samples in the stove test facility environment. Those blanks were obtained by charging a sample train as if it were a actual sample.
The sample train was then leak checked, sealed, allowed to sit over- night and leak checked again. Tables 8 and 9 present the results of analyses of train blanks. Many of the train blank results are higher than normal acceptable levels. Since the water used for charging the MMS trains was from the same container as the water used to charge the 0M7 trains that source of contamination can be eliminated as pDssibility.
As mentioned in Section 4, the methylane chloride did not appear to be a satisfactory sol- vent for the materia collected during sampling. Ineffect ve sample recovery using MeC1 2 may have left residue in the sample trains which would then result in high train blanks.
Table 10 presents the results of the duplicate samples in units of grams per hour except for the samples collected in the stack during test burn 1 That burn was not completed and no stack flow rate could be calculated using the Oregon woodatove program. Those results were calculated using the F calculations.
The large amount of resulting data underwent multiple checks to minimize the number of errors. All data reduction was done twice by two different data handlers. The two sets of data were then compared. Any in- consistencies resulted in a third check of that particular portion of the data to resulve the discrepancy.
The example calculations were prepared by the field team leader and given to the data processor for input to the computer. Reference Method 3 specifies a range for F 0 of 1. Table 11 presents the average CRIS a 2 02, and O values for each test horn and the corresponding orsat analyses.
F 0 was cai. Some of the project participants are concerned with the accuracy of these data since they are the basis for calculating stack gas flow rates and heat outputs which are used to calculate emission rates. The CD4S criteria were a 5 percent zero drift and a 2 percent span drift.
The effect of these drift allowances on the F 0 can be signifi- cant. The worst case span drift situations allowable under the validation criteria would be for a negative 1. In this case the average 02 and CO 2 values would have been Thus, it appears that the F 0 calculation is highly sensitive to instrument drift.
The F 0 is an oxygen balance evaluation. The instrument used for this test program uses a zirconium oxide detector which operates at a t nperathre of C. NA Insufficient data were collected to ccinplete these calculations. This could esu1t in a 1: Errors in tne CT 4 measurements uld result in errors in the stack gas flows calculated using the CHO balance which would result in a proportional and direct error in the calc ated MM5 and cti7 stack emission rates. Since the dilution tunnel flows were measured using a standard pitot tube, errors in the CEMS would not cause an error in those emission rates.
It was finally determined that the SO 2 was apparently reacting with other components of the flue gas including material condensed in the SO 2 sample Line or material collected on the filter. Span d ecks were erratic.
Increasing the SC 2 concentration entered into the calcula- tion increases the stove heat output, the percent oxygen and overall combustion efficiency while decreasing the wood combustion efficiency, stack gas flow rate, and percent CO 2.
Inaccurate SO 2 measurements precluded reliable proportional- sampling in the stack. The dry fuel composition was assumed to be 51 percent carbon, 7. PC wag calculated using the heat content determined for each crib used during the test program Appetidix D. The resulting heat input and stack flows were used to calculate the results summarized in tables 3a, 3b and 3c of Section 2.
Table 1 3 summarizes the moistures for each run. No Oregon Program run. Sam- pling ended immediately. Tube repaired and train leak checked. Data recorded at 5 minute intervals rather than on a percent of fuel burned basis. Second filter tore during run, probably during pretest leak check. Second filter installed backwards in sample train. A second meter box was used for the duration of the test. Meter gamma was corrected by proportion- ing the bio calibrations based on percent of the respec- tive gas volumes.
All dilution tunnel samplers shutdown for 70 minutes while repairs ware made. Sam- pling restarted simultaneously. Stack samplers continued operat: Operator failed to record meter temperature. Meter tem- perature estimated to be for the test.
Operator failed to record meter temperature for first 13 readings of 35 reading test. Average recorded readings used for calculations. Lost power after 5 minutes of sampling. Power restored and testing resumed after 5 minutes downtime. After testing was completed the elbow between the con- denser and XAD module was broken as the operator was removing the sample train from the stack.
Lost power to samplers and stove scale. Test ended after 70 minutes of burn. Stove charged, doors were closed then testing started. Readings continued adding the final weight, prior to the power lcss, to the scale reading. Stove doors were opened for S minutes after 6 minutes of burn.
Stove doors were opened zor 6 mirutes after 90 minutes of burn. Stove doors were opened for 1 minute after minutes of burn. Stove doors open for first 10 minutes of test. Stove doors opened for 5 minutes after 65 minutes of burn.
Stove docrs opened for 5 minutes after minutes of burn. Stove doors opened for 3 minutes after min- utes of burn. Stove doors opened for 1 minute after minutes of burn. Fire died after minutes. Less than 3 punds of wood burned. However, when woodstoves are used, products of both complete and Incomplete combustion of wood are emitted.
Three sampling methods are currently being use i to collect samples to characterize woodstove emissions: The first two methods both collect a sample directly from the stdck, while the third method requires dilution of the entire stack flow first, with subsequent collection of a sample from these diluted gases. For Oregon Method 7, the following com2onents are analyzed: For the ASTM dilution tunnel, filters and probe wash are analyzed. The task leaders served complementary roles in areas of project coordination overseeing sample preparations gas chromatography TOO and gravimetric GRAY analysis, GCIMS, quality control, and data analysis and validation.
The task leaders also enacted quality assurance procedures described in the Quality Assurarna Project Plan with supervision by and coordination with both the Project Director and Quality Assurance Q. The samples were provided by Engineering Science and consisted of the following: For QA purposes selected burns employed dual H1 6s In the stack which resulted In as many as seven sample sets for analysis.
The sample collection period was during the months of September, Octobc. The analysis of samples followed procedures published by the state of Oregon as shown In Figurt Analysis of the M 5 samples followed published AEE.. Level 1 procedures with the following exceptions: Oregon Method 7 sample fraction and analytical matrix.
ASTM sample fractions and analytical matrix. Probe washes were desiccated at roan tomperature and weighed. The filters were desiccated at room temperature and weighed. The dried probe residues and filters were combined and Soxhiet extracted with methylene chloride. The condensate, condensate Impinger rinse, impinger water, and impinger rinse were combined and extracted by the Level 1 partition procedure.
Quantitative calibration of the T 0 procedure for the purpose of mass determination was accomplished by the use of mixtures of known concentration of the normal hydrocarbons decane, dodecane, and tetradecane. The peak area due. This method is applicable to organic liquids, solid sample extracts, aqueous extracts, and extracts from the Modified Method 5 sampling train sorbent module.
The analysis was performed after the sample material was concentrated in order to have sufficient GRAY material to weigh in an accurate manner. Chromato rapnic conditions were selected to optimize both peak resolution and analysis time. No samples were analyzed until tune criteria were met. Target compounds were Identified using characteristic ions and retention t1.
The analysis was performed In the full scan mode. The target compounds were put into the calibration solution at five concentration levels and each sol ution was analyzed to estabi Ish a response factor database. Quantitation of compounds was performed by the method of relative response factors. The number of area units per nanogram was then multiplied by an appropriate factor I. Note that the number is representative of the Quantifiable Limit, not the Limit of Detection.
A determination of the quantifiable limit for the overall method would require a determination of compound recoveries over the range of interest and Incorporation of this recovery factor into the determination. Daily analysis included a demonstration of DFTPP tune, daily calibration check, a quality control sample, and analytical sampi es. Finnigan MAT Column: The spectra and results of the library search were Inspected and manual Interpretation was cuperlirposed upon the automated computerized Interpretation.
The data are reported as scan number, compound s Identified at that elution time 1 and three parameters reported from the NBS library search algorithm which aid In estimating the quality of the identification. However, 1 a compound was not Identified In the library search, the results are reported as ma: That Is, if components coelute, these parameters can be quite low because the spectrum does not represent a pure component. In addition, inhibition of vulgaris, the most common human skin disease.
