Cardioprotective effect of resveratrol and resveratroloside was determined in ischemia-reperfusion experiments
on rats. It was found that single intraperitoneal administration of any compound (10 mg/kg) followed by 30-min ischemia
and 120-min reperfusion resulted in statistically significant decrease of myocardial infarct area (55.0±4.0% for control
group; 40.7±4.4% for the group 1 received resveratrol; 41.6±4.8% for the group 2 received resveratroloside). The
cardioprotective effect of resveratroloside was detected for the first time.
