Scientists reverse ageing in mice

Scientists reverse ageing in mice 1

Harvard University researchers believe it may soon be possible to regenerate human organs.
The quest for a cure to ageing has taken another step forward following new research that has succeeded in reversing the ageing process in mice. The experimental treatment not only slowed down the ageing process but actually rejuvenated aged organs. In the future it is possible that similar treatments could be administered to human patients in an effort to combat age-related problems such as dementia, heart disease and strokes.
“This could lead to strategies that enhance the regenerative potential of organs as individuals age and so increase their quality of life,” said study leader Ronald DePinho. “Whether it serves to increase longevity is a question we are not yet in a position to answer.”

Harvard scientists were surprised that they saw a dramatic reversal, not just a slowing down, of the ageing in mice. Now they believe they might be able to regenerate human organs.
