Resveratrol, a constituent of red wine, has long been suspected to have cardioprotective effects. Interest in this compound has been renewed in recent years, first from its identification as a chemopreventive agent for skin cancer, and subsequently from reports that it activates sirtuin deacetylases and extends the lifespans of lower organisms. Despite scepticism concerning its bioavailability, a growing body of in vivo evidence indicates that resveratrol has protective effects in rodent models… Expand

TLDR
The results of these studies suggest that resveratrol modulates vascular cell function, inhibits LDL oxidation, suppresses platelet aggregation and reduces myocardial damage during ischemia-reperfusion. Expand
Anti-proliferative effect of resveratrol, a natural component of grapes and wine, on human colonic cancer cells.
TLDR
Resveratrol caused a significant decrease of ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) activity, a key enzyme of polyamine biosynthesis, which is enhanced in cancer growth, and resulted in the reduction of the intracellular putrescine content, indicating that polyamines might represent one of several targets involved in the anti-proliferative effects of resver atrol.

Resveratrol: a molecule whose time has come? And gone?
TLDR
Up to the present, conclusive evidence for its absorption by human subjectsin biologically significant amounts is lacking, and it is questionable that its powerful and beneficial in vitro activities are reproduced as a consequence of sustained moderate red wine consumption. Expand
Substrate-specific Activation of Sirtuins by Resveratrol*
TLDR
It is shown here that resveratrol is a substrate-specific activator of yeast Sir2 and human SirT1 and that in three different yeast strain backgrounds, resver atrol has no detectable effect on Sir2 activity in vivo, as measured by rDNA recombination, transcriptional silencing near telomeres, and life span.

Results suggest that resveratrol may possess anti‐inflammatory properties via a novel mechanism and may lead to potential new therapies for the treatment of chronic inflammation. Expand
Role of resveratrol in prevention and therapy of cancer: preclinical and clinical studies.
TLDR
In vivo, resveratrol blocks the multistep process of carcinogenesis at various stages: it blocks carcinogen activation by inhibiting aryl hydrocarbon-induced CYP1A1 expression and activity, and suppresses tumor initiation, promotion and progression. Expand
