Journal Article
POHL, F., GOUA, M., YATES, K., BERMANO, G., RUSSELL, W.R., MACIEL, P. and KONG THOO LIN, P. 2021. Impact of rapeseed pomace extract on markers of oxidative stress and DNA damage in human SH‐SY5Y cells. Journal of food biochemistry [online], 45(2), article e13592. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1111/jfbc.13592

With increased longevity and subsequent rise in people with age-related neurodegenerative diseases, protection of neurons from oxidative stress damage has become an important field of study. For the first time, we highlight the neuroprotective proper... Read More about Impact of rapeseed pomace extract on markers of oxidative stress and DNA damage in human SH‐SY5Y cells..

Frontiers in neuroscience [online], 13, article ID 1091. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3389/fnins.2019.01091

Genetic mutations and aging-associated oxidative damage underlie the onset and progression of neurodegenerative diseases, like Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Machado-Joseph disease (MJD). Natural products derived from plants have been regarded as impor...

Journal Article
POHL, F. and KONG THOO LIN, P. 2018. The potential use of plant natural products and plant extracts with antioxidant properties for the prevention/treatment of neurodegenerative diseases: in vitro, in vivo and clinical trials. Molecules [online], 23(12), article ID 3283. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3390/molecules23123283

Neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and Huntington's disease, present a major health issue and financial burden for health care systems around the world. The impact of these diseases will further increase o...

Study into the polyphenol content and antioxidant activity of rapeseed pomace extracts. (2016)
Presentation / Conference
POHL, F., GOUA, M., BERMANO, G., RUSSELL, W.R., MACIEL, P. and KONG THOO LIN, P. 2016. Study into the polyphenol content and antioxidant activity of rapeseed pomace extracts. Presented at 2016 Nutrition Society's Scottish section meeting: phytochemicals and health: new perspectives on plant based nutrition, 21-22 March 2016, Edinburgh, UK.

Rapeseed pomace (RSP) is a waste product obtained after edible oil production from Brassica napus. This study aimed to determine the polyphenol content, radical scavenging activity, ferric iron reducing antioxidant power and the oxygen-radical absorb...
