Constipation is a common condition, with prevalence after 65 years, is a major colorectal cancer risk factor. Recent works have demonstrated advances in personalized, preventive nanomedicine, leading to the construction of new materials and nanodrugs, in particular, nanocrystalline cerium dioxide (NCD), having strong antioxidative prebiotic effect. The aim(More)
A method of panthenol-stabilized cerium dioxide nanoparticles synthesis was developed and their effect on the survival rate of human epidermoid cancer cells HEp-2 and diploid epithelial swine testicular cell line (ST-cells) under oxidative stress conditions induced by hydrogen peroxide introduction and UV irradiation was studied. The results obtained(More)
UV-shielding property, photocatalytic activity and cytotoxicity (including photocytotoxicity) of citrate-stabilized ceria colloid solutions were studied. It was established that UV-shielding property (namely, the sun protection factor, the critical absorption wavelength and the UVA/UVB-ratio) of ceria nanoparticles are as good as those of titanium dioxide(More)
The virus-inhibitory activity of a molecular complex (MC) of tilorone and yeast RNA was studied in vitro on three virus-cell systems: vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) - murine fibroblast L929 cells, Venezuelan equine encephalittis virus (VEEV) - swine embryo kidney (SEK) cells and encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV) - established piglet testicular (EPT)(More)
Male infertility has largely idiopathic, multifactorial origin. Oxidative stress is a major factor that affects spermatogenesis, in particular in aging. Cerium dioxide nanoparticles (CNPs) due to their antioxidative properties are promising to impact on the development of male infertility. The aims of this study were to investigate the effects of CNPs on(More)
Nanocrystalline ceria possesses a unique complex of physical and chemical properties making it highly bioactive material. In this review, modern data on the action of nanocrystalline ceria on cells, micro- and macroorganisms are analyzed. Special attention is paid to the analysis of the factors affecting protective properties of CeO2 with respect to the(More)
In vitro experiments the authors have studied a property of yeast RNA--tilorone hydrochloride complex covalently linked to spheron to induce the synthesis of interferons type I (alpha- and beta-interferons) in the culture of peripheral mononuclear human cells. Such a complex is shown to possess a marked interferonogenic activity. The data obtained appear to(More)
The influence of tilorone dihydrochloride and its analogues--diphenyl derivatives on the changes of transmembrane potential of mitochondrial membranes of the isolated rat hepatocytes has been estimated. Authors have shown a significant increase in mitochondrial potential thirty minutes after the introduction of the test compounds to the cells using the(More)
Antiviral activity of nanosize cerium dioxide sols (CeO2) in animal cell culture has been studied. The inhibiting effect of the mentioned sols upon reproduction of vesicular stomatitis test-virus was demonstrated for the first time in case of preliminary 24-hour contact with cells lines L929 and EPT. The effectiveness of protective action depends on initial(More)
