Medical-grade collagen peptide in injectables provides antioxidant protection.


PMID 24286241

Abstract

Medical-grade collagen peptide is used as an additive agent in pharmaceutical formulations; however, it is unknown as to whether the compound exerts antioxidant effects in vitro. In this study, we evaluated the antioxidant effects of medical-grade collagen peptide on reactive oxygen species such as hydroxyl radical, superoxide anion radical and singlet oxygen using electron spin resonance and spin trapping. We confirmed that medical-grade collagen peptide directly inhibited hydroxyl radical generated by the Fenton reaction or by ultraviolet irradiation of hydrogen peroxide, and singlet oxygen. In addition, an antioxidant effect of medical-grade collagen peptide on singlet oxygen was observed in peptide fractions 12-22. The total amount of antioxidant amino acids (Gly, Hyp, Glu, Ala, Cys, Met and His) constituted more than half of the total amino acids in these fractions. These results suggest that the observed antioxidant properties of medical-grade collagen peptide are due to the compound containing antioxidant amino acids. Medical-grade collagen peptide, which is used in pharmaceuticals, and especially in injectables, could provide useful antioxidant properties to protect the active ingredient from oxidation.
