Research chemist Agnes Rimando first encountered pterostilbene when she was a graduate student at the University of Chicago. Rimando works with the USDA Agricultural Research Service, Natural Products Utilization Research Unit, housed in the University of Mississippi National Center for Natural Products Research. When studies in the 1990s suggested that resveratrol provided substantial health benefits, Rimando began experimenting with pterostilbene in hopes of finding similar activity.

In 2003, Rimando asked Dennis Feller, former UM professor and chair of pharmacology, and Wallace Yokoyama at USDA Western Regional Research Center in Albany, Calif., to collaborate on studies of the compound, targeting a particular protein in cells that is involved in fatty acid metabolism and transport. Results of their work were presented at the American Chemical Society meeting in 2004 and attracted widespread attention, including coverage on national and international TV and radio stations, and mentions in Time, Parade and other consumer magazines.

Rimando and colleagues at other institutions have continued to study the compound. Preliminary results of a new study of its effectiveness for protecti
