 Best Poster Presentation Award #1

Klara Supikova, Palacky University Olomouc, Czech Republic was discerened an award for her poster entitled "Sulfated Phenolic Acids are Common Plant Metabolites".

"This study describes mainly novel sulfated derivatives of phenolic acids identified in plants. Only some of these compounds were detected before, nevertheless, only in marine species (seagrasses and algae). In the future, I would like to focus on the identification of other unknown potentially sulfated compounds present in nature, as we already know, the plant "sulfatome" is quite rich in some cases. A challenging task for me and my colleagues will be the discovery of sulfotransferases responsible for the biosynthesis. Moreover, the definition of the physiological functions of sulfated phenolics in plants remains also unclear, thus, I would like to direct my research activities to answer these questions."

Screen-15x8

Many Short Oral Presentations were submitted during the 15th World Congress on Polyphenols Applications, held on September 28-30 2022. The committee voted for the best 3 of these short oral presentations.

Best Short Oral Presentation Award #1

Picture Paul Besrukow

Paul Besrukow, Geisenheim University, Germany was discerened an award for his short oral presentation entitled "Grape Cane Stilbenoids as Biopesticides in Organic Viticulture"

Mr. Besrukow is working on the analysis, valorization and application of polyphenols extracted from agricultural by-products. In scope of the joint project VITIFIT, which focuses on the reduction of copper usage in organic viticulture, he investigates the antifungal efficacy of differently formulated stilbenoid-rich grape cane extracts on Plasmopara viticola, causal agent of grapevine downy mildew. 


 Best Short Oral Presentation Award #2

SchmutzC picture

Cornelia Schmutz, University of Vienna, Austria, received the best short oral presentation award for her contribution "Anthocyanin-Rich Berry Extracts and Chemotherapy: A Critical Combination". 

Irinotecan, as pro-drug of SN-38, is a frequently chosen chemotherapy option for colorectal cancer. Bioactive plant ingredients, so-called anthocyanins, are promising candidates to possibly alleviate adverse effects induced by the topoisomerase (TOPO) poison SN-38. Hence, the FWF funded project is centered on potential protective or adverse effects of anthocyanin-rich berry extracts during chemotherapy. In vitro experiments already showed reduced DNA/TOPO I intermediates, in both tumorigenic and non-tumorigenic colon cells.

Future work will focus on the relevance of the observed effects inin vivomodels of tumor-bearing animals.


Best Short Oral Presentation Award #3

PROF KAMBIZI PIC

Learnmore Kambizi, Cape Peninsula University of Technology, South Africa, was discerned an award for his short oral contribution "Pigmented Potatoes: A Potential Panacea for Food and Nutrition Security and Health?"

Prof. Kambizi is a full professor of Botany at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, South Africa. His main interests are Ethnobotany, Phytomedicine, Botany, Medicinal Plants, Sustainable utilization and conservation, Food and Nutrition Security.

His interests in working with Traditional Medical Practitioners are a major part of his work. Prof Kambizi was appointed the first Director of African Centre for Herbal Research based in Nigeria, a position he holds to date. Although Prof Kambizi is well vested in medicinal plants, he has interests in food and nutrition security with the vision 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals in mind. These interests have led him to start work on indigenous underutilised pigmented potato cultivars. This is because of their immense potential in ameliorating food and nutrition insecurity as shown in this review that he put together. So far, he has worked on the role of root zone temperature on physiological growth and phytochemical constituents as well as biological activity, in Salad Blue, Pink Fir Apple and Highland Burgundy Red pigmented potato cultivars, among other studies. Although phytochemical constituent results look promising, the biological activities are not conclusive. Therefore, further studies are required to elucidate these activities.

Going forwards, Prof Kambizi is interested in studying more cultivars from different parts of the world to see their responses to different biotic and abiotic stresses especially in South Africa where he is based, isolation of the main phenolic compounds, elucidation of their activities, and bioavailability of these compounds especially after processing. Bioavailability studies post processing will potentially open insights into the quality and quantity of the compounds that would be useful in human physiology and therefore link these compounds to the health benefits of these potatoes.

Prof Kambizi is actively looking for funding and collaborators to pursue these studies and is open to any such around the globe.

Polyphenol-Protein Interactions - Still Many Challenges to Cope With...

Polyphenols 2022 Speakers -  Sascha RohnDr. Sascha Rohn, Technische Universität Berlin, Germany, will join us this year to present a talk entitled “Polyphenol-Protein Interactions - Still Many Challenges to Cope With...”

More and more researchers are dealing with the characterization of interactions of polyphenols with other food ingredients. In this ocasion, proteins are interesting, as they can interact (non-covalently), but als form (covalent) reactions products, highly depending on the interaction/reaction conditions, as well as on the initial properties of the polyphenols and the proteins. Cosequently, interaction and reaction products might affect technofunctional and physiological properties (of the corresponding foods) as well. One can even think of covalent polymeric reaction products that affect color, solubility and lead to unrevealed nutritional consequences. Overall, this is a bunch of complex challenges that need to be considered.

Gut Microbial Metabolism of Dietary Polyphenols in Health and Disease

Polyphenols 2022- Jan ClaesenDr. Jan Claesen, from Cleveland Clinic, USA, will join us this year to present a talk entitled “Gut Microbial Metabolism of Dietary Polyphenols in Health and Disease” in a session dedicated to “Polyphenols & Microbiota – Recent Advances & Perspectives”.

Flavonoids are consumed in a largely glycosylated form, rendering them poorly available for small intestinal absorption and subsequent systemic distribution. Upon reaching the colon, select commensal gut bacteria can catabolize these flavonoid substrates into smaller monophenolic acids.

In his talk, Dr. Claesen will discuss the contribution of microbial catabolism to the beneficial effects of dietary flavonoids in health and in disease.

Evaluation of Microstructure and Green Extraction Methodologies for Recovering Polyphenols From Sweet Potato Peel

Polyphenols 2022 Speakers -  2Dr. Juan Manuel Castagnini, from the University of Valencia, Spain, will join us this year to present a talk entitled “Evaluation of Microstructure and Green Extraction Methodologies for Recovering Polyphenols From Sweet Potato Peel”.

The re-use of by-products from food processing and their re-introduction in the production cycle is a strategy that is worth considering for the development of a more sustainable food industry. Although many actors and industrial sectors could help to tackle the limitation of the traditional food system approach, researchers can contribute by innovations able to create a better and more nutritious diet and a sustainable food system. In this sense, the recovery of bioactive compounds from by-products using innovative non-thermal green technologies is an interesting approach to develop new ingredients and products.

Purple and orange sweet potato peel could be an interesting source of bioactive compounds. In this study, through pulsed electric field assisted extraction and supercritical solvent extraction different extracts were obtained and characterized. Also, the microstructure of the solids residues recovered after extraction were analysed to better understand the effect of extraction processes on the matrix.

Chemical and Sensory Evaluation of Astringency Modulation in Red Wine

Polyphenols 2022 Speakers - Fabian WeberDr. Fabian Weber, University of Bonn, Germany, will join Polyphenols Applications 2022. He will give a talk on the "Chemical and Sensory Evaluation of Astringency Modulation in Red Wine".

Besides the color, the mouthfeel and astringency are the most relevant quality aspects of red wine. Anthocyanins are the coloring principle and tannins are the key compounds for astringency.

Both compounds are extracted from the grapes during winemaking and both compounds are subjected to extensive structural changes during wine ageing. The corresponding reactions that lead to a stable color and an attenuated astringency are closely related and are affected by the wine matrix.

The goal of Dr. Weber's study was to understand the role of polysaccharides in grapes and wine regarding the formation of polymeric pigments and the masking of astringency.

Join the congress this June in Valencia & Online to learn more about the sensory properties of polyphenols in different matrices.

Beneficial Health Effects of Polyphenol-Rich Fruit Juice in Humans

Polyphenols 2022 Speakers - Prof. Elke RichlingProf. Elke Richling, University of Kaiserslautern, Germany, will join Polyphenols Applications 2022 to present recent advances on the "Beneficial Health Effects of Polyphenol-Rich Fruit Juice in Humans".

In vitro and in vivo studies provide evidence that polyphenol-rich fruit juices and their extracts can influence lipid metabolism as well as improve DNA integrity.

To substantiate preliminary findings, Prof. Richling and her team performed a placebo-controlled intervention study with 36 male healthy subjects (age 20–40 years, body mass index 19–25 kg/m2). After one week washout period, the volunteers consumed 750 mL/day of a polyphenol-rich fruit juice (containing chokeberry, cranberry, and pomegranate) or placebo drink for eight weeks. Blood sampling was performed after the washout period as well as after four and eight weeks of intervention and used to analyse biomarkers of the lipid metabolism like blood platelet cyclic adenosine monophosphate phosphodiesterase (cAMP-PDE) activity. In addition, effects on DNA strand breaks and on body weight/composition were monitored.

The results showed a significant inhibition of cAMP-PDE activity (p<0.01) and decrease in DNA strand breaks (p<0.05) during juice consumption. Consuming juice, an increased fat-free mass (p<0.05) was found after four weeks, whereas a significant (p<0.05) elevation in body weight was observed in control group.

Taken together their results indicate health beneficial effects associated with polyphenol-rich fruit juice consumption.

Join us in Polyphenols Applications 2022 to know more about these findings and many more topics.

Towards the Utilization of Cannabinoids as Anticancer Agents

Polyphenols Applications 2022 - Dr. Guillermo VelascoDr. Guillermo Velasco, from Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria San Carlos, Spain, will join us this year to present a talk entitled “Towards the Utilization of Cannabinoids as Anticancer Agents”.

A large body of evidence shows that cannabinoids, in addition to their well-known palliative effects on some cancer-associated symptoms, can reduce tumour growth in animal models of cancer and specifically of gliomas. The mechanism of cannabinoid anticancer action relies, at least largely, on the ability of these agents to stimulate autophagy-mediated cancer cell death. Moreover, the combined administration of cannabinoids and temozolomide produces a strong anticancer effect, which correlates with an intense activation of the signalling route that triggers the activation of cytotoxic autophagy.

Research conducted in Dr. Velasco's group has also led to the identification of mechanisms of resistance to cannabinoid anticancer action. For example, up-regulation of the growth factor Midkine (MDK) promotes resistance to cannabinoid anticancer action in gliomas via stimulation of the Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase tyrosine kinase receptor (ALK); and could be a factor of bad prognosis in GBM patients. All these preclinical findings have facilitated the promotion of clinical studies to investigate the safety and efficacy of the combined administration of THC+CBD and temozolomide in GBM.

In this presentation Dr. Velasco will briefly discuss these issues and other possible future studies that may help to clarify whether cannabinoids may be useful as anticancer agents in patients with gliomas or other cancers.

Inhibition Mechanism of Catechins on Dietary AGEs Absorption and Toxicity

Dr. Qian Wu updatedDr. Qian Wu, from Hubei University of Technology, China, will join us this year to present a talk entitled “Inhibition Mechanism of Catechins on Dietary AGEs Absorption and Toxicity”.

In her study, using a simulated gastrointestinal digestion model, Dr. Wu showed that catechin efficiently inhibited the digestion of oligopeptide-AGEs. A mass-spectrometry- (MS) based proteomics approach (Q Exactive) was applied to identify the digestion products of glycated bovine serum albumin (BSA), and three oligopeptide-AGEs was found, including FWGK(160)-CML, LSQK(245)FPK-CML, WSVAR(221)LG-H1. No free AGEs were detected indicated that the digested glycated protein existed in the form of oligopeptide-AGEs. Addition of catechin as inhibitor, a significant decline in the fluorescence intensity of glycated protein, the degree of hydrolysis and free amino acids were observed and the particle size of the digestion products increased, which could indicate the inhibitory effects of catechin on the release of AGEs during gastrointestinal digestion.

Using Caco-2 cell model, we found that catechins could effectively inhibit the absorption of oligopeptide-AGEs and the expression of oligopeptide-transportor (PEPT1) and tight junction protein (ZO-1). The expression of ZO-1 in Caco-2 cells could be determined by immunohistochemical staining, and the results suggested that adding catechin could significantly increase the expression of ZO-1 (P< 0.05). Caco-2 cells were induced with BSA-AGEs digests for 24 h, and it was indicated that 20 µm and 50 µm catechins could reduce the expression of PepT1 by 53.8% and 73.1%, respectively (P< 0.01). In addition, molecular docking method was used to compare the binding ability of catechin to three oligopeptides-AGES (FWGK(160)-CML, LSQK(245)FPK-CML, WSVAR(221)L-G-H1) and PepT1, and it was found that catechin was easier to bind to PepT1. Therefore, the transport capacity of PepT1 to oligopeptide-AGEs was decreased.

It was found that the activation of RAGE receptor in rat liver were inhibited and the liver damage caused by dietary AGEs were reduced by catechin in rat model. SPF Rats were divided into four groups: normal diet (N), high-dose AGEs diet (H), 0.2% catechin supplemented diet (0.2%) and 0.5% catechin supplemented diet (0.5%), respectively. The expressions of RAGE, p38MAPK and NF-κB in the liver of the rats were detected by immunochemistry staining. The results showed that the activation of RAGE-p38MAPK-NF-κB signaling pathway was significantly inhibited by 0.5% catechin (p<0.01).The expressions of tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) genes in liver were detected by RT-PCR, and the results showed that the expression of inflammatory cytokines could be significantly decreased by 0.2% and 0.5% catechin.

Polyphenols and Extracellular Vesicles: A New Revolution?

Dr. Ramaroson AndriantsitohainaDr. Ramaroson Andriantsitohaina, from France, will join us this year to present exclusively and for the first time a talk on “Polyphenols and Extracellular Vesicles: A New Revolution?”.

Extracellular vesicles have been well reported as a novel mean of cell-to-cell communication in physiology and pathology. 

Dr. Andriantsitohaina was recently the first to prove that polyphenols can act on signaling pathways that interfere with the EVs biogenesis (release and content), and are thus able to control cells' functional properties. 

He points out that the combination of polyphenols and EVs can increase their therapeutic potential, for instance:

  1. Plants are able to produce EVs that encapsulate natural components from vegetables, polyphenols for instance
  2. Mammalian cells can be treated with polyphenols and the subsequent EVs produced are enriched in these components
  3. EVs from mammalian cells can be uploaded with polyphenols. 

Join us in Polyphenols Applications 2022 and be the first to listen to Dr. Andriantsitohaina review the novel aspects of the interplay between polyphenols and EVs and its potential health benefits in cancer, cardiovascular, metabolic and neurodegenerative diseases.
