Resveratrol Protects Lung Cells From Damage From Cigarette Smoke

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Scientists at the University of Rochester pretreated the lung cells of one group of mice with resveratrol (a SIRT1 activator) while pretreating the lung cells of another group of mice with sirtinol (a SIRT1 inhibitor).  The researchers then exposed the lung cells of both groups of mice to cigarette smoke.  The mice that were pretreated with resveratrol had less lung damage than the mice pretreated with the SIRT1 inhibitor.  Might resveratrol be used to reduce lung damage of smokers?
