An antioxidant found in red wine could treat life-threatening inflammations like appendicitis, a new study claims.

Recently published studies by scientists at the University of Glasgow indicate how resveratrol could work as effective therapy for dangerous inflammations such as appendicitis, peritonitis and systemic sepsis.

Findings from the university’s infection and immunology division, along with collaborators in Singapore, indicate that resveratrol could be used to treat such deadly inflammatory diseases, and may also lead to new resveratrol-based drugs.
