Russian biophysicist will feel the experimental method of life extension

In the near future in one of the Moscow clinics will be held the operation to stem cells, which, as expected, can significantly prolong life and delay aging. Earlier such experiments were carried out only on animals, now biophysicist Alex Karnaukhov Institute of cell Biophysics, RAS plans to put the experiment on myself.

As reported by the scientist, initially the operation was scheduled for the next day, but shortly before that in the blood of the scientist recorded a high sugar content, and experiment it was decided to migrate. A new date will be appointed after an examination, which must undergo a biophysicist in the near future, write “Izvestia”.

Aging, according to the specialist, not least due to accumulation in body cells, damage DNA. In order to significantly slow down this process, it is proposed to take stem cells from the bone marrow not too old man, “freeze” them, and years later re-transplanted into the body.

Karnaukhov said that earlier experiments in anti-aging with stem cells have already been conducted on animals, and as a result of laboratory rodents lived an average 34 per cent longer than their counterparts, the experiments were not. According to Biophysics, the obtained results are convincing enough to start testing a new technology on people, and start scientist was ready with yourself.

It is noted that in itself the operation to stem cells is not too unique, but for the first time it will be held in the framework of this experiment. To “return” to the cells in the body it is planned in about ten years. The probability that the experience in life extension will be held in varying degrees of success, biophysicist estimated at 95-97%.

The scientist said that today he was 55 years old, and if the experiment shows its effectiveness in his case, in the case of younger people the technique should be more effective.
