Study of Distribution and Biological Effects of Fullerene C60 after Single and Multiple Intragastrical Administrations to Rats

It can be assumed that fullerene nanoparticles penetrate from the gastrointestinal tract of rats into the bloodstream and translocate into secondary organs with no pronounced toxic effect in experimental conditions studied.

The acute and sub-acute toxicity of C 60 /PVP complex in vivo

It was established that intraperitoneal administration of PVP 20 kDa-wrapped fullerene has no toxic effect and is a perspective substance for potential application in biology and medicine.

Effect of long-term treatment with C60 fullerenes on the lifespan and health status of CBA/Ca mice.

The results suggest that the lifespan-extending effect in C60-treated mice appears due to the protective effect of fullerenes in opposition to the negative effect of olive oil in CBA/Ca mice.

Protective Effects of Fullerene C60 Nanoparticles and Virgin Olive Oil against Genotoxicity Induced by Cyclophosphamide in Rats

Fullerene C60 and VOO have protective effects against the CP-induced mutagenicity and genotoxicity and open an interesting field concerning their potential antigenotoxic agents against deleterious side effects of chemotherapeutics.

Short-Term Introduction of Fullerene C60 Nanoparticles in Rat Small Intestine Induces the Rapid Development of Hepatocyte Pathology

The aim of the study was to reveal cellular pathologies upon direct short-term administration of fullerene C60 nanoparticles into the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) of rats and to detect nanoparticles in samples of the small intestine and liver.

Evaluation of the Effects of Fullerene C60 Nanoparticles on Oxidative Stress Parameters in Normal Rats Liver and Brain

The oxidative stress parameters were determined in brain and liver tissues, including the contents of glutathione (GSH) and malondialdehyde (MDA), and the activities of catalase (CAT) and superoxide dismutase (SOD).

Hepatoprotective effect of orally applied water-soluble pristine C60 fullerene against CCl4-induced acute liver injury in rats

Biochemical and pathological results obtained in this study indicate that water-soluble pristine C60 fullerene in a single dose of 1.5 mg kg−1 has a hepatoprotective effect against CCl4-induced toxicity via its antioxidant properties.



[60]fullerene is a powerful antioxidant in vivo with no acute or subacute toxicity.

Results show that aqueous C(60) suspensions prepared without using any polar organic solvent not only have no acute or subacute toxicity in rodents but they also protect their livers in a dose-dependent manner against free-radical damage.

Toxicity studies of fullerenes and derivatives.

If pristine C60 is absolutely nontoxic under dark conditions, this is not the case under UV-Visible irradiation and in the presence of O2 where ffullerene solutions can be highly toxic through 1O2 formation.

Fullerenolates: metallated polyhydroxylated fullerenes with potent anti-amyloid activity.

The observed pronounced anti-amyloid activity and low toxicity of NaFL make it a very promising lead drug for the development of potent fullerene-based therapeutic approaches for the treatment of amyloidoses, such as Alzheimer's disease and others.

Clearance kinetics of fullerene C₆₀ nanoparticles from rat lungs after intratracheal C₆₀ instillation and inhalation C₆₀ exposure.

The C( 60) burden in the lungs, liver, and brain of rats was determined by a newly developed sensitive high-performance liquid chromatography-ultraviolet absorptiometry combined with extraction and concentration of C(60) from the organs.

Tumor-inhibitory effect and immunomodulatory activity of fullerol C60(OH)x.

The results suggest that C60(OH)x can enhance the innate immunity of tumor-bearing mice, and therefore inhibits growth of the tumor.

In vivo reaction between [60] fullerene and vitamin A in mouse liver

The observed biotransformation of C60 proves that C60 does not remain unchanged in the liver as believed previously, and shows that Diels–Alder-like reactions can occur invivo.
