Medpage: Red wine component resveratrol embedded in cardiac stent
This is just so incredible. From Medpage:
"In a study reported at the American Heart Association's Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology conference, industry and academic researchers described how they combined red wine polyphenols resveratrol and quercetin into a coating for drug-eluting stents.
When tested on rats, the plastered stent appeared to dose-dependently block restenosis and local inflammation in the month after stenting compared with a bare metal stent.
Equally as impressive, the red wine compounds accelerated endothelial growth by 31% at 10 days post implant.
James J. Kleinedler of Louisiana State University presented the study."
