Resveratrol could help slow decline in lung function
February 27 2017. On January 19, 2017, the journal Thorax reported the finding of researchers at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ Saban Institute of a protective effect for inhalable resveratrol against aging-related degenerative lung changes. Resveratrol, an antioxidant compound occurring in red grapes and wine, has been associated with a number of benefits in animals and humans. "We believe that ours is the first study to demonstrate a beneficial effect of lung-directed resveratrol treatments on aging lung function," announced lead researcher Barbara Driscoll, PhD.
The study involved a mouse model of premature aging, including accelerated aging of the lung. Resveratrol or a control substance were intratracheally instilled monthly for three months. Lung structure, function, DNA damage and survival of alveolar epithelial type cells that line the lungs’ alveoli were evaluated one month following the final treatment.
