Scientists discover “anti aging genes”
Advertisement
#1
The scientists involved in a new study at University College London have identified anti aging genes. The scientists have claimed that they have identified key genes that slow down the aging process.

In their study, the researchers found that proteins that encode for insulin and insulin-like growth factor 1 signalling pathways had the ability to increase the lifetime of worms and mice.

The director of the Institute of Healthy Ageing at University College London and the lead researcher, Professor Linda Partridge said that the findings of the study could help to treat or delay many diseases simultaneously with medication. The study has brought ray of hope for the people suffering from debilitating diseases like heart disease and Alzheimer's disease.

Professor Linda Partridge said, "By tacking the causes of ageing we could treat or at least delay a broad spectrum of conditions simultaneously. This research means a new approach to treatment of age-related conditions.”
