The prolongation of the lifespan of rats by repeated oral administration of [60] fullerene

The prolongation of the lifespan of rats by repeated oral administration of [60] fullerene

Countless studies showed that [60]fullerene (C60) and derivatives could have many potential biomedical applications. However, while several independent research groups showed that C60 has no acute or subacute toxicity in various experimental models, more than 25 years after its discovery the in vivo fate and the chronic effects of this fullerene remain unknown. If the potential of C60 and derivatives in the biomedical field have to be fulfilled these issues must be addressed. Here we show that oral administration of C60 dissolved in olive oil (0.8 mg/ml) at reiterated doses (1.7 mg/kg of body weight) to rats not only does not entail chronic toxicity but it almost doubles their lifespan.

The effects of C60-olive oil solutions in an experimental model of CCI4 intoxication in rat strongly suggest that the effect on lifespan is mainly due to the attenuation of age-associated increases in oxidative stress. Pharmacokinetic studies show that dissolved C60 is absorbed by the gastro-intestinal tract and eliminated in a few tens of hours. These results of importance in the fields of medicine and toxicology should open the way for the many possible -and waited for- biomedical applications of C60 including cancer therapy, neurodegenerative disorders, and ageing.

If you are like most people, you probably think it’s more than a little strange to see something like charcoal being advertised as a health product. You are probably thinking, charcoal is something that is used to help heat up my barbecue in the summer. How is it that all of a sudden, it’s being put into everything from toothpaste to body soap?
