Preclinical studies on a model of the anticylicic stomach ulcer discovered the antiulcer effect of water. Official clinical studies demonstrated that, when treating patients with duodenum ulcers, fullerene water facilitated fast and proper healing of ulcer defects, recovery of the acid-forming function of the stomach, and normalisation of the cellular and humeral immunity links.

Many cases of stomach and duodenum ulcers, gastritis and duodenitis are associated with Helicobacter pylori bacterial infection. This bacterium was discovered recently. Hitherto it was considered that no bacteria could survive in the stomach’s hydrochloric acid. In 2005, the researchers who discovered the medical significance of Helicobacter pylori were awarded the Nobel Prize in medicine. Combinations of different antibiotics were used for eliminating these bacteria. Unfortunately, strong drugs are not effective in all cases. Drinking fullerene water enhanced the effect of antibiotics and facilitated complete liquidation of this bacterium.

Studies in the Blokhin Russian Oncological Research Centre of the RAMS investigated the impact of fullerene water on the growth dynamic of implanted neoplasms of ovaries and the prostate gland in mice and rats. An antitumor effect of the water was discovered. Drinking fullerene water inhibited neoplasm growth by 30 to 70 %. The longevity of animals increased by a factor of 1.5 to 2. Animals who drank fullerene water exhibited neoplasm growth inhibition higher than that in animals that were administered fullerene water as injections.

In spring 2002, subsequent to study results, Yaroslav Golovanov published the article Our scientists have found a cancer drug! in the Komsomol’skaya Pravda newspaper. Naturally, fullerene water is not a cancer drug, though its antitumor effect reduces the likelihood of occurrence of a malignant tumour in healthy persons. Besides, oncologists will be able to use the antitumor and radio and hepatoprotective properties of fullerene water during treatment of patients undergoing radiation and chemotherapy.

The antiatherogenic properties of fullerene water were studied on an experimental atherosclerosis model at the Malaya Institute for Therapy of the AMSU. By introducing big doses of cholesterol into the food ration, the experimental animals developed an experiment-induced pathology with a characteristic set of atherosclerotic involvement of the liver, kidneys, spleen and cardiac vessels (extensive cholesterol plaques over the entire aorta). Next, without changing the food ration, fullerene water was injected intravenously to the regimen: one injection every 2 weeks. Four injections were done in two months. As a result, the cardiac vessels were cleaned practically completely of cholesterol plaques, and atherosclerotic involvement of the liver, kidneys and spleen was liquidated. In so doing, the animals were administered big doses of cholesterol, keeping its level in the blood in excess of normal. However, the effect of fullerene water was that cholesterol failed to deposit on the walls of the blood vessels, but was excreted without producing any harm.

The effectiveness of using fullerene water in case of different complications associated with diabetes pathologies was demonstrated during joint experimental diabetes studies conducted by the Euphrates University (Turkey) and the Dnipropetrovsk University. In the setting of diabetes, dysfunctions and diseases of internal organs and of the cardiovascular and nervous system will develop. Injection of fullerene water and its drinking demonstrated positive effects followed by normalisation of associated biochemical indicators.
