Globally, life expectancy grew due to advances in health and technology, but improvements in the standard of living of older people were lagging far behind. One of the biggest medical problems is to prolong life without compromising health.
The Hebrew University professors in Jerusalem conducted a study that revealed a non-standard group of molecules. These molecules allow cells to repair damaged components and maintain their functions.
The research has far-reaching practical implications as the new technology helps create innovative compounds to treat diseases that are currently untreatable. The study also shows that these molecules can be used for prevention.
“We hope to significantly delay the development of many age-related diseases in future and improve people’s quality of life,” the scientists say.
In order to advance the research and transfer it into medical treatment for various patients, a startup has been founded, which is developing the necessary drug. Thus, the eternal life of mankind is probably not far off.
