Projects

Impact of cherry anthocyanins on gout and inflammation (2017 - 2018)$55,955
Description
This project funds are to assess attenuation of inflammation and disease symptoms through two different models. One is to identify the impact of sweet cherry anthocyanins on markers of gout. The second is to investigate the effect of sweet cherry anthocyanins on acute, exercise-induced inflammation in humans.

Bioactive Food and Nutrition Research PHASE 2 (mouse trial and cycling trial) (2016 - 2017)$98,296
Description
Utilising the optimised cherry extract from Phase 1 of the project, an animal model (mice) will be used to investigate the impact on inflammatory markers through a standard 28-day supplementation protocol. Blood samples will be obtained and prepared to enable serum analysis of inflammatory markers utilising Luminex xMap technology. The supplementation protocol will entail animals fed in two stages: - Firstly, the animals will be fed cherry extract (to determine impact as a preventative treatment); - Secondly, the animals will be fed cherry extract once inflammation already exists (to determine effect as reversal treatment)
