Studies suggest that resveratrol (trans-3,4',5-trihydroxystilbene), which is a diphenolic antioxidant found in plants and foods, has cancer chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic potential. A lower risk of lung cancer among consumers of wine compared with consumers of other beverages has been observed, which may be partly attributed to the high content of resveratrol particularly in red wine. We have studied the effect of resveratrol on the expression of genes involved in the metabolism of… CONTINUE READING
