The antioxidant and antihypoxic properties
Model:
Antioxidant properties - in vitro, with the use of specific enzymatic test systems. Antihypoxic properties - in vivo, by systemic administration to experimental animals.

Result, opinion:  
A sample of betulin was administered once at a dose of 100 mg /kg po (per os) in the form of an aqueous solution prepared with adding 1-2 drops of Tween-80
-According to the biochemical in vitro testing it can be assumed that the dry birch barkextract obtained by the original technology of “Birch World” Ltd. may have a sufficiently wide range of pharmacological effects and show antioxidant and adaptogenic properties.
-When administered systemically to animals the examined sample shows a small protective anti-hypoxic effect in models of mice hemic and hypoxic hypoxia. These results indicate that the "Birch World"'s dry birch barkextract production technology allows to get samples having anti-hypoxic properties.

Glucose tolerance and insulin resistance significantly improve when using betulin.
It can be concluded that the sum of triterpenoids from birch bark is an effective bacteriostatic agent against microorganisms such as Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus antracoides, Eschericha coli and Salmonella typhimurium, and also retards the growth of dermatophyte fungi Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger. High activity against Aspergillus niger in prospective opens  possibilities for the use of birch triterpenoids in veterinary with regard to frequent contamination of farm animals with these microorganisms.
Based on the original natural compounds of betulenol (1) and betulinolic acid (2) with relatively low anti- HIV activity, by their chemical modification a number of highly active compounds have been found. The most promising semi-synthetic derivative of Lupane series include amides, dipeptides and esters of  betulenolic and betulinic acids.
