It is well known that chronic ethyl alcohol (EtOH) consumption is capable to injure brain cells and to cause essential abnormalities in behavioral characteristics of animals addicted to alcohol. In this work we for the first time have shown that administration of aqueous solutions of hydrated C60 fullerenes (C60HyFn) with C60 concentration of 30nM as a drinking water during chronic alcoholization of rats (a) protects the tissues of central nervous system (CNS) from damage caused by oxidative… CONTINUE READING
