Protective Powers: Fullerene C60 Test Results

Protective Powers: Fullerene C60 and Virgin Olive Oil Shield Against Cadmium-Induced Genotoxicity in Rats

Introduction: Cadmium, a prevalent environmental pollutant, takes various forms such as oxide, chloride, and sulphide, posing significant threats. In this study, we explore the genotoxic impact of fullerene nanoparticles C60 (C60) and virgin olive oil (VOO) on cadmium chloride (CdCl2)-induced genotoxicity in rats.

Study Findings: Surprisingly, both C60 and VOO demonstrated a substantial reduction in genotoxic effects induced by CdCl2, particularly in livers, kidneys, and bone marrow. Chromosomal alterations caused by CdCl2 were reversed by the protective effects of C60 and VOO. Molecular and cytogenetic studies collectively indicate the anti-genotoxic properties of C60 and VOO against CdCl2-induced genotoxicity in rats.

Title: Fullerene-C60 in Squalane: A Clinically Proven Anti-Wrinkle Agent

Introduction: This clinical evaluation delves into the effectiveness of fullerene-C60 dissolved in squalane (LF-SQ cream) for anti-wrinkle cosmetics. The study focuses on wrinkle and skin-surface roughness features, trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL), moisture levels, and visco-elasticity.

Clinical Results: LF-SQ cream significantly enhanced skin moisture and anti-wrinkle formation. Application twice daily proved notably effective after 8 weeks, demonstrating superiority over the placebo without adverse side effects.

Title: Fullerene Nanomaterials: Unveiling Antiallergic Properties

Study Highlights: This research reveals that fullerenes exhibit the capability to inhibit allergic responses in vitro and anaphylaxis in vivo. The study suggests that these molecules might represent a novel approach for controlling diseases influenced by mast cells (MC) and peripheral blood basophils (PBB), such as asthma, arthritis, and autoimmune diseases.

Title: Fullerene-C60/Liposome Complex: Defense Against UVA-Induced Skin Damages

Study Insights: Investigating the defensive effects of a fullerene-C60/liposome complex against UVA-induced damages in skin structure, nucleus, and collagen. The complex significantly repressed UVA-caused corneum scaling, epidermis disruption, breakdown of collagen type I/IV, DNA strand cleavage, and pycnosis/karyorrhexis.
