Researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in the United States announced in a study that they have been able to reverse the aging process in mice and in human cells. According to a journal which is published in Cell, the partial reprogramming by short-term cyclic expression of Oct4, Sox2, Klf4, and c-Myc (OSKM) ameliorates cellular and physiological hallmarks of aging and prolongs lifespan in a mouse model of premature aging.
Also, according to the Newsweek, researchers have announced that they found a vitamin to stop the aging of human internal organs. Researchers have for the first time successfully tested a vitamin’s ability to help the internal organs of elderly mammals regenerate their cells.
The research is published in the journal Science, Scientists at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) gave mice the vitamin known as Nicotinamide riboside (NR), which proved to have a positive effect on the functioning of stem cells.
The causes of aging are uncertain; current theories are assigned to the damage concept, whereby the accumulation of damage (such as DNA oxidation) may cause biological systems to fail, or to the programmed aging concept, whereby internal processes (such as DNA methylation) may cause aging.
