To investigate the beneficial properties associated with polyphenols, we screened 12 polyphenols for their ability to increase the viability of PC12 cells subjected to oxidative stress via Co[Cl.sub.2] and [H.sub.2][O.sub.2]. Cell viability data demonstrate that 50 [micro]mol/L methyl gallate and 50 [micro]mol/L fisetin significantly increase viability of [H.sub.2][O.sub.2]-stressed cells. Further, ...
