Trans-resveratrol, a phenolic compound present in wine, has been reported to be a potential cancer chemopreventive agent. However, although it has numerous biological activities in vitro, there are few data about its bioavailability and tissue distribution in vivo. The objectives of this study were to investigate the absorption and tissue distribution of 14C-trans-resveratrol following oral administration to mice. Male Balb/c mice were given a single oral dose of 14C-trans-resveratrol and were… CONTINUE READING
