Biologists from the United States have come up with a methodology for the withdrawal of aging cells from the body, which uses haymaking. These drugs selectively initiate cell death.
In their experiments, employees of the National Institute of Style, which is located in Betesd, used two drugs – Dazatinib and Quercetin. These funds were given to laboratory mice. In different combinations, drugs were able to inhibit aging processes, increasing the life expectancy of experimental.
Scientists took one group of young mice of four months of age and introduced them with injections. These are old cells, lost the ability to share. After 15 days, a violation of physical functions was recorded in mice. They have reduced appetite, weight and activity. Further experimental surfaces for several weeks issued a combination of Dazatinib and Quercetin. This treatment returned the mice the previous level of endurance and physical activity.
Experienced drugs for older animals. Senscent cells were not introduced to these mice. Medicines were given to two groups of subjects. The first mice was twenty months, the second – 24–27 months. In the first group, the combination of these drugs demonstrated significant inhibition of degenerative processes. In the older mice, the life expectancy after treatment increased by about a third.
The results of the study were commented by Richard J. Hodes holding the position of director of the National Institute of Style. According to him, the experiments convincingly prove that, changing the fundamental processes of aging, in particular the aging of mouse cells, it is quite possible to prevent conditions that are associated with age. And this will improve health and increase life expectancy. According to scientists, senolics will also help treat patients with age -related chronic diseases and those who have suffered cancer.
