Professor, Department of Bioscience, School of Agriculture, Tokai University
AGEs are substances formed by glycation of proteins, contributing to the development of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, senility and arteriosclerosis. The AGEs sensor non-invasively applies light to the fingertips, calculates a score correlating to the accumulated volume of AGEs contained in the blood, and if this sensor spreads to medical institutions and pharmacies, etc., it will be useful in preventing lifestyle diseases as well as in the development and spread of functional foods and supplements that can inhibit the formation of AGEs.

Keynote Speech 3 "Anti-glycation and cosmetics POLA, from the scene of ‘B.A.’ development"
All the seminars in 2017 are over.AKIHIRO TADA, Ph.D.
SKIN RESEARCH DEPARTMENT, POLA CHEMICAL INDUSTRIES, INC.
“B.A.” was created in 1985. This term means “bioactive”. It is based on the theory that “the starting point for beautiful skin is to draw out the maximum strength of the skin”. One of the main reasons behind its huge success is that it enabled approaches to tackle adult women’s three main skin complaints: wrinkles, sagging, and dullness. It was later upgraded, and in 2010 a full line of lotions to creams was released. The current generation is the 4th generation. The aim is to approach skin trouble and to achieve anti-ageing as a prevention. Here Mr. Tada will particularly explain “anti-glycation”.
