Pterostilbene Decreases the Antioxidant Defenses of Aggressive Cancer Cells In Vivo: A Physiological Glucocorticoids- and Nrf2-Dependent Mechanism
TLDR
Intravenous administration of Pter decreased human melanoma growth in vivo, however, Pter, at levels measured within the tumors, did not affect melanomas growth in vitro. Expand
Cancer chemopreventive and antioxidant activities of pterostilbene, a naturally occurring analogue of resveratrol.
TLDR
Pterostilbene was shown to be as effective as resveratrol in inhibiting electrolyte leakage caused by herbicide-induced oxidative damage, and both compounds had the same activity as alpha-tocopherol. Expand
Molecular targets of the natural antioxidant pterostilbene: effect on protein kinase C, caspase-3 and apoptosis in human neutrophils in vitro.
TLDR
Pterostilbene, an analog of resveratrol, was identified as a good natural antioxidant compound, however, reducing the oxidative burst of human neutrophils during their activation in vitro with pterostILbene does not include protein kinase C phosphorylation pathway. Expand
Plasma levels of vitamin E and carotenoids are decreased in patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH)
TLDR
Given the decreased levels supplementation of lipophilic antioxidants might be a rational treatment option for patients with NASH, the present study aimed to compare plasma levels of antioxidants in patients suffering from NASH and healthy controls. Expand
Pterostilbene and cancer: current review.
TLDR
A comprehensive summary of the antineoplastic mechanisms of pterostilbene is presented based on the results of preclinical studies and recent advances in the study of this dietary compound are highlighted. Expand
The Potential of Non-Provitamin A Carotenoids for the Prevention and Treatment of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
TLDR
The effects of these carotenoids in the prevention or reduction of NAFLD as seen in epidemiological observations and clinical trials, as well as the suggested mechanism of action derived from animal and cell studies are focused on. Expand
Combined treatment with caffeic and ferulic acid from Baccharis uncinella C. DC. (Asteraceae) protects against metabolic syndrome in mice
TLDR
Treatment with caffeic and ferulic acids prevented gain in body weight induced by the high-fat diet and improved hyperglycemia, hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia in an obese mouse model. Expand
Pterostilbene surpassed resveratrol for anti-inflammatory application: Potency consideration and pharmacokinetics perspective
This study aimed to evaluate the suitability of pterostilbene for anti-inflammatory application. The in vitro anti-inflammatory activities of pterostilbene were assessed using resveratrol,Expand
Green tea polyphenol epigallocatechin-3-gallate ameliorates insulin resistance in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease mice
TLDR
Administration of EGCG dose-dependently ameliorated the hepatic morphology and function, reduced the body weight, and alleviated hyperlipidemia, hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance in NAFLD mice. Expand
An Overview of Plant Phenolic Compounds and Their Importance in Human Nutrition and Management of Type 2 Diabetes
TLDR
B berries and other fruits with low-amylase and high-glucosidase inhibitory activities could be regarded as candidate food items in the control of the early stages of hyperglycemia associated with type 2 diabetes. Expand
