New FLAVIOLA outcomes

The results of studies carried out by the FLAVIOLA consortium have recently been published in two scientific journals ("Age" and the "British Journal of Nutrition"), along with a video summary which explains the major outcomes of this clinical trials.

FLAVIOLA International Workshop

The FLAVIOLA International Workshop on Flavanols in Cardiovascular Health will take place on 24 January 2013.

It will be held as an open workshop with presentations of the pivotal scientific findings obtained within FLAVIOLA and discussion thereof. These presentations will be complimented and set into a more general perspective by “context” talks presented by international experts from the scientific community with close connection to flavanol related research. The workshop will end with a round table discussion by invited experts, who will also author the “workshop proceedings”.

More than 100 scientists participated in the FLAVIOLA session at the SFRBM conference in San Diego on 14 Nov 2012.
Topics included "Flavanols in Health and Disease", "Flavanols and Cardiovascular Health: Current Perspectives", "Flavanols and Procyanidins: Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, and Excretion", "Flavanols and Health: Epidemiological Considerations", "Flavanols: From Redox Modulation to Anti-Inflammation: The Role of Epigenetics", "Flavanol and Procyanidin Intake and Cardiovascular Health: Outcomes from Clinical Dietary Intervention Studies".
The presentations are available on the event page online.
