Anti-ageing drug could increase lifespan to 110

US researches are a step closer to developing an anti-ageing drug which could increase the average age span to 110. 

After successfully boosting the lifespan of mice by 35 per cent, they are hopeful the continuing study will be able to help humans in the quests to live longer and prolong the use of their mobility stairlift investments.

The experiments, which were conducted at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, produced dramatic results with treated animals not only living longer, but also becoming healthier over time.

The mice were given a “suicide drug” to fight off senescent cells when activated by a drug. Senescent cells are closely associated with age-related diseases, disorders and tissue repair.

Not only were the mice found to enjoy a longer life, but also remained more active and heart and kidney functions improved dramatically compared to those which aged naturally, as well as less evidence of damaging inflammation due to reduced tumour growth.

However, Dr Darren Baker, the US scientist who led the mouse study told The Mirror: “Since the study technique relied on genetic engineering to give the mice the “suicide gene”, this specific method could not directly be applied to humans.”

But commenting on the positive results he added: “It is not a far-fetched idea to think that there will be things coming down the pipeline that influence or remove these senescent cells.

“All of the mice that were treated to remove their senescent cells had a lifespan extension neighbouring from 25 to 35 per cent, in call cases we found there is significant health and lifespan extension.”

The results come after a figures from Public Health England proved that over 65’s in England are out-living previous generations, with men and women living up to 19 years longer than those several years ago and benefiting from affordable stairlift prices.
