SIERRA PEREZ, Roxana de la Caridad et al. Preliminary studies of a lipid extract stability from the fruits of Roystonea regia in amber glass flasks. Rev Cubana Farm [online]. 2010, vol.44, n.3, pp. 360-366. ISSN 1561-2988.
The D004 is a new active ingredient extracted from the Cuban real palm (Roystonea regia), promising in the treatment of the benign prostatic hyperplasia. To determine its stability in amber glass flasks studies were conducted where samples underwent different conditions. In stress situations D004 is sensitive to the thermal and oxidative degradation. Under accelerated conditions (40 ± 2 ºC ad 75 ± 5 % of relative humidity) there weren't significant changes in any assessed parameters during 12 months allowing predicting a useful life time of at least 2 years under less drastic conditions. It was corroborated under climatic conditions II (25 ± 2ºC and 60± 5% of relative humidity and IV (30 ± 2 ºC and 70 ± 5 % of relative humidity).
