Title:
CARBOXYFULLERENES AND METHODS OF USE THEREOF
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2003072802
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
The instant invention is a method for increasing a metazoan's lifespan, comprising administering a carboxylated derivative of a C60 fullerene. The instant invention further is a process for extending a metazoan's lifespan by administering a superoxide dismutase-mimetic as well as a composition comprising a superoxide dismutase-mimetic. Further, the instant invention comprises a pharmaceutical composition comprising carboxyfullerenes having x pairs of adjacent carbon atoms bonded to two carbons of the C60 sphere wherein said adjacent carbon atom is further bonded to two groups of the general formula -COOH and -R, wherein R is independently selected from the group consisting of -COOH and -H, and wherein x is at least 1. A further embodiment is a non-metal containing composition which can catalytically eliminate two biologically reactive species. Another embodiment is a method of enhancing elimination of reactive oxygen species in eukaryotic cells by contacting cells with a superoxide dismutase mimetic.
