Is reverse aging possible in humans now :
Scientists reduces the age of a mice, Is it reverse aging possible in humans now ?
Why does not hope for immortality? But the fact is that we grow old and die. This time the wheel of that era can turn in the opposite direction. That’s what an experimental study conducted by a team of researchers from Harvard Medical School suggests.
No, this is not a science fiction story. A team of researchers at Harvard Medical School, led by David Sinclair, a researcher in molecular biology, has shortened the lifespan of a rat in the laboratory!
Scientists already knows how to reverse aging in human :
Scientists believe that some certain types of proteins can regenerate old cells into stem cells. Using this method, they were able to restore a mouse’s eyesight in 2020. The mouse’s retinas were damaged by aging, but the scientists were able to regenerate those retinal cells. Using this experience, scientists reduced the age of the rat this time.
In 2006, Japanese scientist Shinya Yamanaka was able to artificially increase the lifespan of skin cells. He also got the Nobel for that discovery. Today, anti-aging skin treatments are being widely used in the medical field.
Researchers at Harvard Medical School have long sought to reverse aging process in humans. In experiments on two mice born at the same time, scientists made special protein and genetic modifications to one of the mice. It was observed that although one rat got older slowly, the other rat was not affected by its age.
However, experts say that while the study points to new horizons in the field of biology, there is no need to reach any conclusion on the whole issue, and more detailed research is needed.
