A group of scientists was able to find a gene therapy that might reverse the aging process. They made this study on mice and they discovered big changes after testing the gene therapy. They discovered that their “treatment” might actually have rejuvenating effects.
The researchers observed that after only six weeks of treatment. The mice had better health and they healed faster. They also lived longer that the ones who did not receive this gene therapy. This is not the first time this treatment is administrated.
The gene therapy used for rejuvenating mice was based on another technique used to rejuvenate cells. The researchers treated these mice with induced pluripotent stem (iPS). This technique has been tested before but it did not show this much potential until now.
