Re: [GRG] C60 Fullerenes for AntiAging?

Good morning Edouard,

The campaign is not finished yet, but yes, we will be starting a cancer study using c60. More specifically, we will be using NSG mice to assess human leukemia proliferation in vivo. Obviously leukemias behave differently than solid tumors might, but its a starting point to further study the effects of c60 on cancer.

Of note, we will also be conducting a lifespan study on middle-aged C57BL/6 mice for a different project. Group size will be 45 and we will be assessing about a dozen age-related biomarkers in addition to basics like CBC, appearance, and mass.

If you see any opportunities to collaborate please feel free to touch base. We’re very interested in making friends with anyone in the aging space.
