OPC is known to have various actions and effects such as an antioxidative action, a peripheral circulation-improving action, a blood flow-improving effect and a liver function-improving effectJapan Food Science,January issue,as well as a platelet aggregation-inhibiting effect JP A. However, in either of these analysis techniques, procyanidin in the form of a mixture with other ingredients from tea or supplements has been difficult to separate from such contaminant peaks; thus, these techniques cannot achieve accurate quantification. Moreover, there are a very large number of stereoisomers for proanthocyanidin due to the stereoisomerism of its constituents, flavanols, and compounds available as standards have therefore been limited.
After three years of practice in pharmaceutical manufacturing sector, he pursued a postgraduate research degree in Pharmaceutical Microbiology and was awarded a PhD degree in At the end of the same year, he was awarded a Fogarty Research Fellowship from the United States Government for three years and worked as a postdoctoral trainee in molecular biology at National Institutes of Health — He commenced his research in oncogene at the Uniformed Service University of Health Sciences — The results of this work were subsequently published in Science.
In he accepted an offer from Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Organization in Australia as a Senior Research Scientist to develop recombinant subunit vaccine.
He returned to Hong Kong to commence his academic career at CityU in up to present. His research interests and specialism include molecular differentiation of microbial cells, analysis and mechanistic studies of pharmaceutical products, traditional Chinese medicines, biological products, and environmental toxicants.
He has published more than papers and over commentaries in different media. Throughout the last two decades, he has served as committee member, adviser and scientific member in different public organizations.

This article needs more medical references for verification or relies too heavily on primary sources. The use of high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) hyphenated simultaneously to inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and electrospray mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) allowed simultaneous identification and quantification of As–peptide complexes and peptides without the need for authentic standards.

Antioxidant supplementation has been suggested as a means to reduce the DNA damage and relieve oxidative stress during the expansion and proliferation of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (bmMSCs) .This oxidative stress is a result of the imbalance between ROS production and diminished endogenous antioxidant protection.
