Rice is well-known as source of vitamin E, beta-glucan and gamma-oryzanol which may be useful for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. Three varieties of rice, white rice: white-hom-ma-li (MLW) and glong-hom-ma-li(MLG); red rice, Sung-yod (SY) were extracted by various methods to obtain 14 fractions. Each fraction was studied for cytotoxicity and protection neuronal cell from hydrogen peroxide-induced toxicity. By MTT reduction assay, all fractions at dose of 100 μg/ml had no cytotoxic effect… CONTINUE READING
