  We report the first experimental demonstration of compensation of beam-beam interaction effects with use of electron beams. Long-range and head-on interactions of high intensity proton and antiproton beams have been dominating sources of beam loss and lifetime limitations in the Tevatron in Collider Run II (2001-present). Electron lense acting on proton bunches has doubled their lifetime by compensating beam-beam interaction with antiprotons. We present results of the experiments, operational details and discuss possibilities of using electron lenses for beam-beam compensation in LHC.
