Other literature type, Article English OPEN
Cha, Jeong-Dan; Kim, Ji-Young;

Cryptomeria japonica D. Don (C. japonica) has been used in traditional medicines from Asia for a variety of indications, including liver ailments, and an antitussive, and for its antiulcer activities. We examined the cell viability and apoptosis of KB cells treated with... View more
