Antiaging Gene Therapy Extends Lifespan in Mice
In a mouse model, antiaging gene therapies were used to overexpress TERT or Follistatin. The mice’s median lifespan increased by 41 and 32 percent. The study used a new viral vector called cytomegalovirus to deliver the treatment.
Liz Parish, Bioviva’s CEO, has used all these antiaging gene therapy treatments on herself.
If mice experienced the same antiaging effects as humans, then humans could live to 100 years of age with these treatments.
