Truong Thi Huynh Hoa, Nguyen Duc Hoan, Hoang Thi An, Ho Thi Cam Hoai, Chu Pham Ngoc Son and Poul Erik Hansen*

Compounds from the leaves of Ilex kaushue have been isolated: uvaol, 3β, stigmast-5-en-yl-β-D-glucopyranoside and three kudinosides C, D and E. Biological testing both for antimicrobial and cytotoxic activity of crude fractions showed activity possibly supporting the common belief that tea of these leaves is potentially healthy.
