Effects of the mitochondria-targeted antioxidant SkQ1 on lifespan of rodents


Figure 1. Low pathogen (LP) conditions extend the lifespan of female outbred SHR mice to the same degree as an optimal concentration of SkQ1. A total of 155 mice living in the LP vivarium of the Institute of Oncology in St. Petersburg were used. For comparison, data of experiments with 200 SHR mice living in the non-LP vivarium of the same institute and already published [3] are shown. Where indicated, the mice received 5 nmol SkQ1/kg per day (which was added to the drinking water) during their entire life.
