Abstract Resveratrol and its naturally dimethylated analog, pterostilbene, show similar biological activities. However, the higher in vivo bioavailability of pterostilbene represents a fundamental advantage. The main focus of this review is on biomedical applications of pterostilbene. The metabolism and pharmacokinetics of this stilbene in inflammatory dermatoses and photoprotection, cancer prevention and therapy, insulin sensitivity, blood glycemia and lipid levels, cardiovascular diseases… Expand
Pharmacology of natural polyphenols: prodrugs and biochemistry of Resveratrol and Pterostilbene
This thesis deals with aspects of the pharmacology of two polyphenols: Resveratrol and Pterostilbene. These plant-made molecules are the object of intensive research due to their biological andExpand
Pterostilbene in Cancer Therapy
TLDR
It is elucidated that PT can be effective against melanoma through the inhibition of adrenocorticotropic hormone production in the brain of a mouse, which weakens the Nrf2-dependent antioxidant defenses of melanoma and also pancreatic cancers. Expand
Role of Natural Stilbenes in the Prevention of Cancer
TLDR
Novel drug formulations have been postulated in order to improve stability and bioavailability, to minimize side effects, and to facilitate interaction with their domains in target proteins, which should lead stilbenes to become effective candidates as anticancer drugs. Expand
Pterostilbene as a Potent Chemopreventive Agent in Cancer
TLDR
Pterostilbene, with improved bioavailability, conferring a superior pharmacokinetic profile and greater anticancer efficacy, may become a stronger candidate than resveratrol for clinical development with potential applications in cancer. Expand
Therapeutic Versatility of Resveratrol Derivatives
TLDR
The chemical structure and the therapeutic versatility of resveratrol derivatives are summarized to provide the related structure activity relationship reference for their practical applications. Expand
Polyphenolic Phytochemicals in Cancer Prevention and Therapy: Bioavailability versus Bioefficacy.
TLDR
The main conclusion emphasizes that these natural molecules (and their chemical derivatives) indeed can be very useful, not only as cancer chemopreventive agents but also in oncotherapy. Expand
Resveratrol, pterostilbene, and dementia
TLDR
The findings of available intervention trials of resveratrol in individuals with mild cognitive impairment or AD do not provide evidence of neuroprotective or therapeutic effects, and future clinical trials should be conducted with long‐term exposure to preparations of res veratrol and pterostilbene with high bioavailability. Expand
Effect of substituted stilbenes on platelet function.
TLDR
The results show that the increase of stilbene derivative lipophilicity enhances their biologic activities on platelet aggregation, platelet radical oxygen species (ROS), and platelet nitric oxide (NO) synthesis. Expand
Comparative analysis of stilbene and benzofuran neolignan derivatives as acetylcholinesterase inhibitors with neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory activities.
TLDR
The findings highlight the great potential of pterostilbene trans-dehydrodimer, pallidol, and boehmenan as multifunctional nutraceuticals for management of neurodegenerative diseases. Expand
Progress to Improve Oral Bioavailability and Beneficial Effects of Resveratrol
TLDR
The strategies used to improve pharmacokinetic characteristics and then beneficial effects of RSV are described and the biological results obtained on several synthetic derivatives containing different substituents, such as methoxylic, hydroxylic groups, or halogens on the RSV aromatic rings, will be described.

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
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
Low-dose pterostilbene, but not resveratrol, is a potent neuromodulator in aging and Alzheimer's disease
TLDR
Pterostilbene is a more potent modulator of cognition and cellular stress than resveratrol, likely driven by increased peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha expression and increased lipophilicity due to substitution of hydroxy with methoxy group in pterostILbene. Expand

Analysis of the general application of polyphenols in cancer therapy will be complemented by potential applications in the therapy of specific tumors, including melanoma, colorectal and lung cancers. Expand
Pharmacometrics of pterostilbene: preclinical pharmacokinetics and metabolism, anticancer, antiinflammatory, antioxidant and analgesic activity
TLDR
The present study evaluated the preclinical pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of trans‐pterostilbene, a constituent of some plants, and demonstrated concentration‐dependent anticancer activity in five cancer cell lines and increased the latency period to response in both tail‐flick and hot‐plate analgesic tests. Expand
Occurrence of resveratrol and pterostilbene in age-old darakchasava, an ayurvedic medicine from India.
TLDR
HPLC analysis of this age old formulation of darakchasava revealed the presence of polyphenols like resveratrol and pterostilbene, now known as antioxidants, cancer chemopreventive agents, and also known to reduce mortality from coronary heart disease by increasing high density lipoproteins like cholesterol and inhibiting platelet aggregation.
