In-Vitro Study I on Alpha PSP 02
Title: In-Vitro Alzheimer Model Study with Neuroblastoma Cells (Sawatsri et al.)
Conclusion and Discussion
In-Vitro studies of neuroblastoma (neuron cells) showed 100% cell death and sever damage of dendrites when neurotoxins were induced. However, when the neuroblastoma (neuron cells) were pretreated with Alpha PSP 02, In-Vitro studies showed different levels of cell survival andapparent recovery of dendrites from teh neurotoxin injuries within 48 hours.

In-Vitro Study II on Alpha PSP 02
Title: Neuroprotective Effective of Alpha PSP 02 in Cell Line Models of Alzheimer's Disease (Sawatsri et al.)
Neuroprotective effect of 0.033, 0.066 and 0.33 mg/ml of Alpha PSP 02 (1:1000, 1:500, 1:100) on LA-N5 that was induced by a 20 min. exposure to 30 μΜ H2O2 (Hydrogen peroxide-induced toxicity). The highest percentage of cells viability was 54.5% as estimated by colorimetric MTT (tetrazolium) Assay. The value represent mean ±SEM of at least three separate experiments, each performed in triplicate, p < 0.05 compared with control group.

Discussion
The percentage of cells viability of neuroblastoma cell at 0.33 mg/ml of Alpha PSP 02 increase 54%. A Study's t-test (two-tailed) was used to determine p-value of the experiment and showed that p-value was less than 0.05 (p < 0.05). It was found that the percentage of cells viability at 0.33 mg/ml Alpha 02 (experimental group) and a control group were significantly different. From the result it was shown that 0.33 mg/ml Alpha PSP 02 can significantly survive from hydrogen peroxide-induced toxicity when compared with control group.

Conclusion
Alpha PSP 02 showed dose dependent for neuroprotective effect in AD model and 1:100 Alpha PSP 02 demonstated the optimal effect with a significant increase of ATP in mitochondria metabolism of about 54% when compared with control. Alpha PSP 02 has a role to intervention in AD.

Rice is an integral part of Thai culture and our way of life. It is the lifeblood nourishing Thailand from the past and into the future. History clearly demonstrates the enormous potential of Thai rice and its intrinsic values which has yet to be fully relised. Innovation can and will enable us to continue to hold on to rice as our precious national asset, especially our native and pure varieties which will allow more value added to be captured in an effective manner....
