It has been experimentally established that dimebon reliably increased the average and maximum life span and significantly improved the general state of C57BL/6 female mice. Compared to the control group, the animals of the test group were more active, had better hair (greater number of hair follicles per unit area of histological section of skin), and lower age-related reduction of the body weight.
