Giuliani G1, Rinaldi F2 1Giuliani SPA, Milan, Italy 2International Hair Research Foundation, Milan, Italy
The anti-apoptotic activity of a new compound with a carotenoid-like structure was studied. This compound has been
recently isolated chemically as a result of studies on the pigments present in a particular species parrots.This new class of
pigment, which are also called Psittacofulvins, have been proved to possess interesting biological properties that differ
from those that carotenoids are known to have. To evaluate the anti-apoptotic efficacy on dermal papilla of this
compound we studied the effect on transplanted bulbs during hair transplants, like a model of induction of apoptosis of
hair bulbs, because the evidence of the hair follicle damage during a transplantation is clear. We made a double blind
randomized clinical trial on 50 men, volunteers, underwent an hair transplant (micro-mini grafts, FUE) in androgenic
alopecia and treated with a topic solution (nanospheres) with psittacofulvin once a day, from 15 days before hair
transplant to 90 days after transplantation.To study the effect of psittacofulvins we used an experimental design
evaluating: 1) the number of apoptotic fragments 2) changes in the mitotic activity in the hair follicles before and after
transplantation. Quantification of apoptotic fragments in transplanted hair follicles is a sensitive and accurate assay of
hair follicle damage. Our results show a very important anti-apoptotic activity of psittacofulvin in transplanted bulbs

Abstract: A new chemical named parrodienes has been extracted from parrots' plumage. From the chemical point of
view, parrodienes are polyunsaturated aldehydes similar to carotenoids. On the basis of this similarity we organized
some biological experiments to evaluate the inhibition of lipoperoxidation of cell membranes induced by CCl4,
protection against ultraviolet rays, anti-inflammatory activity and protection from an increase of ornithine-
decarboxylase as marker of tumoral skin alteration. The results of these experiments showed that unsaturated dienes
(parrodienes) play an important role on the inhibition and prevention of many biological processes that are at the basis

Abstract: The antioxidant activity of a novel series of derivatives with a carotenoid-like structure was studied. These
derivatives have recently been isolated chemically as a result of studies on the pigments present in a particular species of
birds, namely parrots. These novel derivatives, which are also called parrodienes, have been proved to possess interesting
biological properties that differ from those that carotenoids are known to have. The objective of this study was to
demonstrate the ability of these novel compounds to inhibit the formation of reactive oxygen species, especially their
ability to block the formation of hydroxyl radicals, which are among the most reactive products of oxygen reactions and
which produce the greatest damage to cells and tissues. The technique used to assess this antioxidant capacity of
parrodienes was electron paramagnetic resonance, which allows direct assessment of inhibition of hydroxyl radical
formation (.OH). The results show that these derivatives, especially octatriene, are able to exert evident antioxidant
activity, thus confirming that their antioxidant properties are important for their biological activity.
