Implication of reactive oxygen species/oxidative stress has been readily reported in etiology of aging and related manifestations. Plasma membrane as a regulator of numerous aspects of cell physiology including cell-cell interaction, solute transport, and signal transduction, provides structural integrity to the cells. The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of resveratrol administration in vitro, to evaluate the biological effect of this phytoalexin in oxidatively injured erythrocytes during aging. This study, carried out on 91 normal healthy subjects, provides experimental evidence that erythrocytes have increased oxidative damage with age. In vitro administration of resveratrol significantly attenuated deleterious effects of oxidative injury in erythrocytes from humans of all ages.
