Anti-HIV activity
Result, opinion:
Betulenol (1) shows weak Anti-HIV  activity with EC50=23 micron and TI=1,9, i.e. betulenol is 16 times less active than betulenolic acid.
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.

The preceding analysis showed that the antimutagenic effect of naturally occurring compounds and their complexes practically does not exceed 50%. However, along with a positive antimutagenic effect, they often exhibit undesirable comutagenic action. BED is favorably unique in having effectiveness of antimutagenic action with no comutagenic effects. Its protective effect in a single preliminary administration in most cases is at least 60%.
Reseach show membrane-acting of dry birch barkextract in relation to the microsomal membrane. Dry birch bark extract in vitro and in vivo is a substance that competes for binding sites with the 3-metoxibenzantron (MBA) probe improves its permeability, increasing the polarity of deep membrane layers.
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.
