Description: Resveratrol (also known as SRT-501) is a phytoalexin derived from grapes and other food products with antioxidant and potential chemopreventive activities. Resveratrol induces phase II drug-metabolizing enzymes (anti-initiation activity); mediates anti-inflammatory effects and inhibits cyclooxygenase and hydroperoxidase functions (anti-promotion activity); and induces promyelocytic leukemia cell differentiation (anti-progression activity), thereby exhibiting activities in three major steps of carcinogenesis. This agent may inhibit TNF-induced activation of NF-kappaB in a dose- and time-dependent manner.

Additional Information

Resveratrol new formulation: Sirtris Pharmaceuticals  is currently deeloping a resveratrol formulation, called SRT501, which is a proprietary formulation of resveratrol, a polyphenolic phytoalexin derived from grapes and other food products with potential antioxidant, anti-obesity, antidiabetic and chemopreventive activities. Resveratrol may activate sirtuin subtype 1 (SIRT-1). SIRT1 activation has been reported to inhibit tumorigenesis and tumor cell proliferation. SIRT-1 is a member of the silent information regulator 2 (SIR2) (or sirtuin) family of enzymes that plays an important role in mitochondrial activity and acts as a protein deacetylase. SIRT1 appears to be involved in the regulation of numerous transcription factors such as Nf-kB and p53. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus) .
SRT501 is Sirtris's  proprietary formulation of resveratrol with improved bioavailability. In Phase I human clinical trials, SRT501 was found to be safe and well tolerated. In Phase II human clinical trials, SRT501 also lowered glucose and improved insulin sensitivity in patients with Type 2 Diabetes. Sirtris are currently testing SRT501 in a Phase II trial in oncology; new patient enrollment is currently suspended. see
