Olive oil contains several phenolic compounds possessing antioxidant activity. The aim of this study was to investigate the protective effects of olive oil phenolic extract (OOPE) and one of its constituents, gallic acid (GA) against H2O2-induced oxidative stress and apoptotic cell death in HeLa cells, a model for human epithelial cells.
