The purpose of this study was mainly focused on the technology of application of C60 fullerenes in the combined therapy with doxorubicin for treatment of malignant tumors. Growth experiments of transplanted malignant tumors in the presence of pristine С60 fullerenes, doxorubicin and C60 in combination with doxorubicin were performed on groups of mice. It was found that C60 in combination with doxorubicin injection efficiently inhibits the growth of transplanted malignant tumor as well as metastases of Lewis lung carcinoma. The findings demonstrate the possibility of using C60 in combination with doxorubicin in anticancer therapy.
Key words: С60 fullerene; doxorubicin; Lewis lung carcinoma; tumor growth inhibition; increasing of animal life span; metastasis inhibition index.
