Persavita, a new leader in development and commercialization of proprietary science-based natural health products and nutritional supplements, will present data on its synergistic combination of crocin and resveratrol at the International Congress on Natural Products Research ICNPR 2012 in New York during July 30 to August 1, 2012.

The poster presentations, titled ‘”Synergistic cytoprotective effect of crocin and resveratrol on primary human retinal pigmentepithelium (RPE) cells” (Abstract 0142-0001) will demonstrate a synergistic protective effect on primary human RPE cells against light-induced oxidative damage when cells were pre-treated with a combination of crocin and resveratrol. Light-induced damage is a known risk factor for development and progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
