Research Studies

 

 

Our research studies focus on the anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer activities of antioxidant-rich fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices.  The goal is to understand the regulatory role these antioxidant-rich foods play in regulating the immune system and whether they can prevent immunological types of cancers, such as leukemia. 

 

Studies

 

·          Anti-inflammatory activities of grapes in humans at risk for cardiovascular disease

 

·          Analysis of antioxidant status of fresh plum juice concentrate

 

·          Anti-inflammatory effects of strawberries in obese individuals

 

·          Evaluation of resveratrol and curcumin as therapeutics against high-risk leukemia

 

·          Mechanistic studies of programmed cell death in leukemia cells treated with antioxidant phytochemicals

 

·          Anti-inflammatory effects of foods high in antioxidant phytochemicals in autoimmune diabetes and lupus
