During recent years steroidal glycosides have attracted a growing interest owing to the wide range of their biological action on living organisms. The substances of this class are able to inhibit the growth of malignant neoplasms, reduce the level of cholesterol in blood, display antioxidant properties, and have antimicrobial and fungicidal actions.1
