    Resumé

    This volume examines the phytoalexin resveratrol and the
    ongoing studies about its effects on lifespan and health.
    Resveratrol (3,5,4'-trihydroxy-trans-stilbene), a
    phytoalexin produced naturally by several plants when
    under attack by pathogens such as bacteria or fungi,
    significantly extends the lifespan of the yeast
    Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Caenorhabditis elegans and
    the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. Resveratrol is
    currently a topic of numerous animal and human studies
    into its effects.
    The effects of resveratrol on the lifespan of many model
    organisms remain controversial. Anti-cancer,
    anti-inflammatory, blood-sugar-lowering, and other
    beneficial cardiovascular effects of resveratrol have been
    reported in experiments with mouse and rat model
    systems. However, most of these results have yet to be
    replicated in humans. Resveratrol is found in the skin of
    red grapes and is a constituent of red wine. Resveratrol
    has also been produced by chemical synthesis or by
    biotechnological synthesis and is sold as a nutritional
    supplement derived primarily from Japanese knotweed.
