This center investigated the safety and efficacy of five botanical dietary supplements. The center’s primary focus was antioxidant signaling and how it relates to other pathways and mechanisms of action in preventing prostate cancer and neurodegeneration, as well as improving resistance to infectious disease. Research projects included: Botanicals Targeting Signaling Pathways that Promote Prostate Cancer; Botanical Phenolics Targeting Oxidative/Nitrosative Signaling Pathways: Implication for Cerebral Ischemia; and Antioxidant Botanicals and Antimicrobial Defenses.
