first_img Resveratrol is an antioxidant that is found in at least 72 plant species and is known to help protect the heart and nervous system and help prevent cancer, says the report. The researchers did a series of experiments in which they exposed cells to a flu virus and added resveratrol an hour later. They also exposed groups of mice to the virus and treated them with resveratrol or a placebo. The researchers also tested the effects of starting resveratrol treatment at different intervals after infecting cells with the virus. Treatment was most effective—reducing viral growth 87.5%—when treatment began 3 hours after virus exposure. Effects were lower but still significant when treatment began 6 hours after infection, and treatment had no significant benefit if delayed until 9 hours after infection. Rather than directly attacking the flu virus itself, resveratrol seems to block host-cell functions that are essential for viral replication, says the report by Anna T. Palamara and colleagues at the University of Rome. They write that the substance holds promise as a possible weapon against flu. Palamara AT, Nencioni L, Aquilano K, et al. Inhibition of influenza A virus replication by resveratrol. J Infect Dis 2005 May 15;191(10):1719-29 [Abstract] May 31, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – Resveratrol, a chemical found in grapes and other fruits, inhibits the reproduction of influenza viruses in cell culture and mice, according to a recent report in the Journal of Infectious Diseases. “For these reasons, RV merits further investigation as a potential weapon for combating the growing threat of influenza,” the authors conclude. In the tests on mice, the researchers found that resveratrol treatment increased survival by 40% in treated mice, compared with mice that received a placebo. The level of virus found in the lungs 6 days after infection was 98% lower in treated mice than in the placebo group. “We have shown that RV [resveratrol], a natural polyphenol whose concentration in red wine is 1.5-3.0 mg/L, can inhibit the in vitro and in vivo replication of influenza A virus without producing any significant toxicity,” the article states. The apparent ability of resveratrol to block host-cell functions that flu viruses rely on offers important advantages, the researchers say. Compared with existing anti-flu drugs, resveratrol would be less likely to induce resistance by flu viruses, and it would probably be effective for all types and strains of flu virus. In an initial cell-culture experiment, treatment with resveratrol at 20 mcg/mL reduced flu virus replication 90%, and treatment with 40 mcg/mL blocked replication completely. However, because the higher concentration damaged the cells, the lower concentration was used in further tests. Given these and other findings, the researchers concluded that resveratrol interferes with the manufacture of proteins made late in the viral replication process, such as hemagglutinin, and limits the transport of viral ribonucleoproteins from the cell nucleus to the cytoplasm. The authors also determined that the molecular mechanism for resveratrol’s effects has to do with the inhibition of protein kinase C activity and its dependent pathways.last_img read more

Joel Embiid, Trae Young, Jimmy Butler, Kyrie Irving and Kemba Walker were also among the East leaders.The East has its own version of Caruso surging, with Boston rookie center Tacko Fall running sixth among Eastern forwards with 757,375 votes.

first_img1 Leeds owner Massimo Cellino’s son, Ercole, has stepped down from his position as director on the club’s board, it has been confirmed.Ercole notified Companies House of his resignation on March 28 and Tuesday’s announcement by them has been confirmed by the club to Press Association Sport.The 26-year-old apologised to the club’s fans last month after causing offence by using a Nazi reference to describe his haircut in a post on Instagram.That apology came nine days after his brother and fellow club director Edoardo had been suspended by the Football Association following offensive comments he made on social media.Leeds fans’ group Time To Go Massimo said in response to Ercole’s apology that he was not fit to be a director of the club, but he is unlikely now to face possible action for his comments by the FA.The FA suspended Ercole’s brother Edoardo from all football-related activity for three matches following comments he made on Facebook after getting involved in an abusive row with a supporter.Edoardo’s charge included an ”aggravated breach” as his comments included a reference to disability, the FA said. He was also fined £5,000, warned about to his future conduct and must complete an education course within four months.The club has confirmed a six-man board of directors comprising of Massimo Cellino, Edoardo Cellino, American financial advisor Daniel Arty, Salem Patel, Jinesh Patel, who both represent former owner Gulf Finance Capital as minority shareholders, and Italian Giampaolo Caboni.
