Hello CrevetteRevelle,

 

I hope things are doing well for you.

It seems you have help launch the spirit. A researcher is also testing c60 at home in rats (http://www.longecity...e-2#entry657537) and researchers in Kiev and in New York (http://www.longecity...60-mouse-study/) are planning to perform mouse lifespan tests.

 

If you happen to find the time during the summer to give us a report of how our favorite pets are doing, be sure we'll read it very attentively.

 

Cheers!

Hello, for information the mouse lifespan experiment in Kiev will start end of August.

- 3 groups: C60oo, oo, water; by gavage with the same frequency as in the original study

- for each group, N=21 for males and 14 for females. Age at start: 12.5 months (were looking for 11 months but preparation took quite some time)
- A few months ago we have checked the absorbtion of C60 when administered orally to mice

C60 in oil and oil itself have been kindly prepared by the team who reported the life extension in rats, in order to avoid later interpretations on that matter.

- apart from lifespan and gross anatomopathology, various health measures will be monitored (behavior with open field, fur, blood analysis for some animals based on what is available in the lab)
 
If all goes well we should start to know at the beginning of 2016 if it is seems that there is a life extension or not.
Regarding Creveterbelle's experiments at home, we should disclose what is what by the end of 2014.
