The Potential of Polyphenols in the Context of Senotherapy

Alessandra Gambero 1Dr. Alessandra Gambero, from Pontifical Catholic University of Campinas, Brazil, will be joining the 17th World Congress on Polyphenols Applications 2024 this September in Milan.

She will present her latest research on the Potential of Polyphenols in the Context of Senotherapy

Learn more about her findings.

Presentation Summary

  • Cellular senescence is characterized by a stable cell proliferation arrest and the establishment of a secretory phenotype in normal cells in response to intrinsic and extrinsic stimuli.
  • Cellular senescence is associated with chronological aging and a response to environmental stressors.
  • Expanded knowledge about the role of senescence in the physiological context and disease processes and development of drugs that can counteract the harmful effects of cellular senescence as a therapeutic target.
  • Therefore, senotherapeutics can be classified as senolytics drugs that selectively eliminate senescent cells or senostatics (senomorphic) that inhibit, reverse, or prevent aspects associated with cellular senescence.
  • The most studied option combines dasatinib and quercetin, a natural polyphenol that targets BCL-2 and PI3K/AKT signaling pathways.
  • The various pharmacological mechanisms described for polyphenols suggest that others may have senotherapeutic effects, which has been the focus of our recent work.

About Alessandra Gambero

The Gut Microbiota as a Referee of Polyphenol Effects: Metabotypes and Precision Health

Juan Carlos EspínIt is a great pleasure to welcome Prof. Juan Carlos Espín, Spanish National Research Council, Spain, to Polyphenols Applications 2024 this September in Milan.

Presentation Topic: The Gut Microbiota as a Referee of Polyphenol Effects: Metabotypes and Precision Health. 

Presentation Summary

Individuals can be grouped into different metabotypes (metabolic types) based on their gut microbiota's ability to metabolize certain polyphenols, resulting in unique metabolites with varying molecular structures and biological activities. Thus, the effects of certain polyphenols will greatly depend on each individual's gut microbiota. By understanding the microbial ecologies responsible for these metabolic pathways, "precision-health" strategies could be developed to standardize the effects of polyphenols.

About Juan Carlos Espín

Juan Carlos Espín is is a full Research Professor at CEBAS-CSIC (Murcia, Spain). For the past 24 years, his main lines of research have focused on: i) the metabolism and biodistribution of polyphenols in humans, identifying the final responsible actors for biological effects; ii) the use of exosomes to deliver and enhance the biological activity of polyphenols and derived metabolites in systemic tissues; and iii) understanding why some polyphenols do not exert the same effect in all individuals. His research suggests that specific gut microbial ecologies play crucial roles in mediating the observed effects within the context of "precision health".

Juan Carlos has been a "highly-cited" researcher consecutively from 2018 to the present (only 0.1% of researchers worldwide are "highly-cited"). As of March 2024 (according to Scopus), he has an H-index of 85, with 230 JCR publications totaling approximately 23,000 citations, and has led the second highest-earning patent in the history of the CSIC.

Outstanding Contribution by Dr. Charareh Pourzand at Polyphenols Applications 2023

Charareh Winner 1 Charareh Winner 2

The Polyphenols Applications 2023 committee acknowledges Dr. Charareh Pourzand from the University of Bath, UK, for her exemplary achievement in securing the Best Short Oral Presentation Award.

In her presentation titled "Hydroxycinnamic Acid Derivatives as Dual-Action Antioxidants and Iron Chelators for Shielding Skin Cells from UVA Photodamage", Dr. Pourzand provided a comprehensive overview of her research findings. Among the multiple hydroxycinnamic acid derivatives studied, trans-cinnamic acid (TCA) emerged as particularly potent in its photoprotective efficacy against UVA in skin cells. This was attributed to its pronounced capability to reduce both basal and UVA-induced increase in intracellular labile iron levels. Dr. Pourzand elaborated on the dual mechanistic role of hydroxycinnamic derivatives, with a notable emphasis on TCA, in counteracting UVA-induced damage in skin cells.

In general, Dr. Pourzand's Research on UVA photobiology specially in relation to skin photoaging has revealed that UVA component of sunlight has a dual damaging effect on skin cells. In one hand it generates harmful reactive oxygen species (ROS) and on the other hand it promotes the release of harmful free iron that acts as a catalyst to exacerbate the damaging effect of ROS, leading to irreversible skin photodamage in the form of wrinkling, sagging, etc .

Dr. Pourzand stated: "To counteract this dual effect of UVA, we are in process of identifying natural compounds based on polyphenols that can not only neutralise the UVA-induced ROS but also mop the free iron released by UVA. Since the properties and the concentration of such polyphenols can significantly change in different seasons or locations, our future research is concentrated on designing 'bio-inspired' molecules that are more stable than their natural counterparts but still maintain their dual functions. Such bifunctional compounds  can then be added as photo-protectants into sunscreen formulations for a more robust protection against UVA photodamge exerted by sunlight".    

Such advancements in the field of skin photoprotection are of immense importance, and the Polyphenols Applications 2023 team, along with the broader scientific community, recognizes and appreciates Dr. Pourzand's significant contribution.

Natural polyphenol supplements reduce dietary iron absorption in adults with iron-loading diseases

Michael ZimmermannProf. Michael Bruce Zimmermann, ETH Zurich, Switzerland, will join the Polyphenols Applications 2023 Congress and present his latest rearch about the "Natural polyphenol supplements reduce dietary iron absorption in adults with iron-loading diseases".

Dr. Zimmermann and his colleagues developed a new natural polyphenol supplement that strongly chelates iron in vitro and assessed its effect on non-heme iron absorption in patients with hereditary hemochromatosis (HH). The polyphenol supplement reduced iron absorption by ~ 40% from meals and test drinks.

Their results indicate that when taken with meals, this natural polyphenol supplement can decrease dietary iron absorption, and might thereby reduce toxicity of body iron accumulation in patients with HH.

Polyphenol-Microbiome Interactions & Future of Nutrition

Tiffany WeirDr. Tiffany Weir, Colorado State University USA, will join the Polyphenols Applications 2023 Congress and present her latest rearch about the interactions between polyphenols and the microbiome. 

Although consumption of dietary polyphenols is widely acknowledged as beneficial for human health, there is a high degree of variability in individual responses. Some of this variability may be due to differential processing of dietary polyphenols by the gut microbiome. Polyphenol metabolizing enzymes in the gut microbiota can influence the bioactivity and bioavailability of these compounds.

Dr. Weir and her colleagues are working to understand whether these polyphenol metabolizing enzymes are predictive of individual responses in vascular endothelial function to a dietary blueberry intervention in post-menopausal women. More broadly, understanding polyphenol metabolism in the gut will advance precision nutrition and potentially help identify complementary approaches to improve outcomes to nutrition interventions.

Dr. Weir will give a presentation titled: "Polyphenol-Microbiome Interactions & Future of Nutrition"


About Dr. Weir

Dr. Tiffany Weir is a professor of Food Science and Human Nutrition at Colorado State University. She leads an interdisciplinary translational research program focused on identifying the role of the gut microbiota in mediating diet-host interactions for improved cardiometabolic outcomes. Dr. Weir is the coordinator of the Microbiome Network, an interdisciplinary research and education consortium of microbiome scientists at Colorado State University. She also served as the Specialty Chief Editor for the Nutrition, Metabolism, and Microbiomes section of Frontiers in Microbiomes and is currently the Editor-in-Chief for npj Biofilms and Microbiomes.
