Relevance of Chinese medicine to aging-related diseases

Abstract
In this project, neuroprotective, antiinflammatory, and antioxidative characteristics of constituents from Chinese traditional medicine are tested in mesencephalic primary cell cultures. Extracted compounds as polydatin and puererin, and isolated fractions of Ganoderma lucidum will be investigated. In cooperation with partners from the Capital University Beijing, influences on aging-related neurodegenerative diseases will be studied.
