Eternal youth is the dream of mankind, and we have never stopped the exploration of delaying aging.
Scientists from the Institute of Biophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences believe that people cannot live forever, but they can age healthily. The incidence of chronic diseases related to aging is gradually increasing, which not only affects the health and quality of life of the elderly, but also brings a heavy burden to social development. Modern medicine and biology believe that aging is delayed, will fundamentally inhibit the occurrence of a variety of aging related diseases. Scientists have screened out small molecule compounds and drugs that can extend the life of organisms, such as Metformin, Rapamycin, Resveratrol, Spermidine and Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (Nad +), among other technologies that help rejuvenate them.
Three American scientists, Elizabeth Blackburn, Carol Greder and Jack Szostak, were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine in 2009 for their discovery of the mechanism by which telomeres are lost and lengthened.
Tan Zheng and his colleagues from the Telomere and Aging Research Group of the Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences invented telomere lengthening technology, which was granted both Chinese and American international patents. The patent can be applied to any field that needs to maintain, improve and enhance cell proliferation vitality, such as immune cell amplification for the cell therapy of cancer, cell therapy of other diseases, anti-aging health and beauty, stem cells, animal cloning and other applications and scientific research.
Prolongation of telomeres can improve and enhance cell proliferation, keep cells young and delay cell senescence.
