In this book the authors present recent advances in gallate research. Topics discussed in this compilation include the health benefits of nongallated and gallated flavan-3-ols; epigallocatechin-3-gallate, GRP78 and unfolded protein response; antioxidant and cytoprotective effects of gallate; role of gallate on imflammatory process; influence of the nature and concentration of dia- and paramagnetic doping elements on electron structure and electrophysical properties of doped lanthanum gallate; and therapeutic potential of gallic acid and its derivatives.
