Cell protection with OM24
OM24 protects human skin cells from UV radiation and oxidative damage by free radicals during 24 hours.
In cell biological studies human keratinocytes were repeatedly exposed to intensive UV irradiation (80 J/m2).
Upper right: Without irradiation, the skin cells form a dense layer adhering to the bottom of the culture dish.
Middle right: After irradiation with UV light, intercellular contacts are damaged, the cells detach from the dish, and some cells die.
Lower right: Preliminary treatment of the cells with OM24 protects them from UV-induced damage and their structure remains intact.
