Aging: Scientists test injection to reverse it

Aging This is one of the main concerns of man; Either for aesthetic reasons or because of the physical limitations that this implies, there has always been an interest in finding a way to slow it down or reverse it.

Apparently, scientists at Harvard University in the United States have found a solution in the form of an injection. If this information interests you, then keep reading, because we at Unotv.com have all the details for you.

Aging was reversible in mice

Scientists at the Wyss Institute, dedicated to the development of biological engineering, were the ones who discovered a potential source of “rejuvenation” and tested it in aged mice, extending the remaining half-life to 109 at 124 weeks of age. % and improvement in many health parameters.

“We saw significant improvement in fragility scores, increased shelf life; Furthermore, in human keratinocytes (cells that produce keratin and molecules with regulatory functions of epithelial and dermal cells) we observed significant epigenetic markers of age reversal, suggesting a possible re-regulation of gene networks at a young age. Let’s give and potentially healthier.

Yamanaka factor, responsible for rejuvenation

According to experts, the opposite Aging The number of mice was possible because of the Yamanaka factors (or a subset; OCT4, SOX2 and KLF4; OSK), which were injected and caused a kind of “reprogramming” in the DNA.

Thanks to the experiment, rodents who had lost their sight over the years recovered and had a more youthful and intelligent mind.

While it is believed that this type of treatment could help fight certain diseases such as cancer, Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s, there have not yet been advanced stages of experiments involving humans to look at the effects of Yamanaka factors. can be tested on. how they respond to setbacks Aging,
