Evaluation of Therapeutic Effects of Astaxanthin on Impairments in Salivary Secretion

In the study “Evaluation of Therapeutic Effects of Astaxanthin on Impairments in Salivary Secretion,” authors Takashi Yamada, Koufuchi Ryo, Yoshinori Tai, Yoh Tamaki, Hiroko Inoue, Kenji Mishima, Kazuo Tsubota, and Ichiro Saito examined the ROS scavenging capacity of Ast using a human salivary gland epithelial cell line (HSY) and investigated the effects of Ast on salivary secretion in a mouse model of irradiation-induced salivary gland dysfunction.
