MitoTag was discerned one of the Innovation Awards of Skin Ageing & Challenges 2021.
MitoTag is a Portuguese startup that develops targeting systems to deliver antioxidants and other bioactive molecules to mitochondria, our cellular energy sources, to protect them from multiple aggressors, including oxidative stress, in order to delay or reverse skin ageing.
In this particular study, demonstrated by Dr. José Feliciano Silveira Duarte, novel mitochondriotropic antioxidants derived from hydroxycinnamic and hydroxybenzoic acids were developed, their cytotoxicity and protection against oxidative stress-induced cytotoxicity on Normal Human Dermal Fibroblasts (NHDF) was assessed as well as the cytotoxic profile and effects on selected transcripts on the EpiDermFT 3D human skin model.
