Researchers from the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in California have tested an experimental drug on rapidly-aging mice, with the treatment designed to combat aspects of aging closely associated with Alzheimer's. The results were very positive, with treated mice exhibiting better memory, cognition and more.
Researchers in Japan have found that human aging may be able to be
delayed or even reversed, at least at the most basic level of human cell
lines. In the process, the scientists from the University of Tsukuba
also found that regulation of two genes is related to how we age.
Research into the underlying causes of a genetic disorder that causes premature aging and death has revealed a key driver of aging in all people. Better yet, this mechanism is reversible – and with it, perhaps, scientists may be able to slow or reverse the aging process.
