Research Projects

AQUANOVA continues to coloberate with scientific experts and research institutions. The following table gives a rough picture of the ongoing research projects.

Research objective

Active Component


Antimicrobial Activity

NovaSOL® Curcumin

Wound healing in dentistry and dermatology / combat inflammatory diseases

Joint Health /
Joint disease (osteoarthritis)

NovaSOL® Curcumin
NovaSOL® Curcumin + Boswellia
NovaSOL® Curcumin + PS (Phoshatidylcholin)

Influence of curcumin (+ accompanying substance) in joint diseases and their prevention Comparison: curcumin, curcumin natively vs NovaSOL® Veterinary and possibly human study

Pharmacokinetics Oncology

NovaSOL® Curcumin

Light therapy and cancer (malignant melanoma and skin); Topic: effects and pharmacokinetics of native and mizelliertem curcumin combined with UVA and visible light - potential application in actinic keratosis


NovaSOL® Curcumin

Technology development for better visualization of cancer growth without radiolabeling (Frauenhof institute of Leipzig and Oncotrition)

rheumatoid arthritis

NovaSOL® Curcumin

Investigation of the anti-destructive effect of curcumin NovaSOL in rheumatoid arthritis


NovaSOL® Curcumin

human study

bowel disease

NovaSOL® Curcumin

Chronic inflammatory bowel disease and absorption of curcuminoids in the colon


NovaSOL® Curcumin

In vitro study of the antimicrobial effect of curcumin on pathogens of dermatomycoses

CaCo2 cells

NovaSOL® Curcumin

Caco2 cell experiments

CaCo2 cells

NovaSOL® Curcumin

Comparative study of the products of Wacker, Meriva and AQUANOVA by Caco2 cell experiments

Alzheimer / Australia

NovaSOL® Curcumin

Mouse Study: optical method for measuring the volume of the inflamed tissue, and verifying the memory performance of mice

Skin cancer /
malignant melanoma

NovaSOL® 6PN
NovaSOL® 8PN

Stimulation of natural killer cells in the cancer therapy of malignant melanoma; Implementing a human study

Skin cancer /
malignant melanoma

NovaSOL® Vineatrol®

3-5 Standardized cell lines
in vitro: Viability assays, cell cycle analysis, real-time cell monitoring, 3-D Hautrekonstrukte with immunohistochemistry
Vineatrol (commodity) / NovaSOL® Vineatrol / resveratrol (commodity) / Empty micelle

Vineatrol®: BV-study

NovaSOL® Vineatrol®
NovaSOL® Xanthohumol

Carrying out a comparative study with BV Vineatrol; further experiments with xanthohumol

sustainable Pharmacy

Paclitaxel (cytostatic)
17-alpha-Ethylestradiol (hormone)
Carbamazepine (antiepileptic)
Clarithromycin (antibiotic)

Bioavailability micellated drugs (cancer drug - Toxol / anti-inflammatory agent - cortisone / antibiotics - natamycin, macrolides) to CaCo2 cells, then animal studies (rats?); By improving the BV of not so good bioavailable drugs is less needed or given so much unused into the environment à environmental protection

Micelle analytics


Developing a better micelle analytic

Rheumatoid arthritis / osteoarthritis

NovaSOL® Curcumin

Rheumatic diseases of children (and adults)
