Scientists Reset the Age of the Stem Cells From the World’s oldest Donor

Scientists Reset the Age of Stem Cells from a Supercentenarian who Lived to be 114

Scientists have for the first time reprogrammed stem cells from a woman aged 114, making her the oldest donor ever.

Researchers first transformed cells from the blood sample of the patient into induced pluripotent cells (iPSCs) and then generated mesenchymal cells that help maintain and repair tissues such as bone, cartilage, and fat.

Evan Snyder, stem cell biologist at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (California), says: \”We set out on a quest to answer the big question: can you reprogram old cells?\”
