iEffect of APM against@UV Damagej
In recent years, ozone layer destruction has been increasing ultraviolet rays by an alarming degree. A consequent increase in the incidence of skin disorders is a social concern. The incidence of various skin disorders increases with increasing exposure to ultraviolet rays.Recent studies have shown that free radicals, which are produced in the skin tissue by the action of ultraviolet rays, are involved in the development of various kinds of skin disorders including skin cancer.

In this experiments, the backs of mice were irradiated with ultraviolet B rays at an intensity of 15 kj/m2, mice were given 200 mg/kg of APM.
Also, immediately after irradiation by 2 kj of UV-B rays three a week,50 mg were administered, and this was continued for 25 weeks.
In this result, it is confirmed the increase in Malonyl Dialdehyde (MDA), which is an index for skin aging, and sialic acid ,which plays a role in inflammations .

APM is effective against skin disorders associated with irradiation by ultraviolet rays.
When the condition of the tumors that were produced on the backs of the mice were compared between the group of mice that were given APM and thegroup that were not, more mice had malignant tumors than in the untreated group, but in the treated group mice with malignant tumors were few and mice with benign tumors were larger in number. Moreover, the amount of MDA and sialic acid was low.The joint research group concludes from these results that it has been demonstrated that APM is effective in suppressing the damage done by ultraviolet rays.
