The fountain of youth could be in a mouse?!


COMING FROM WORK DONE IN STANFORD. SCIENTISTS PUT THE BLOOD OF THE YOUNG MOUSE, THE ONE ON THE RIGHT INTO HIS AGING COUNTER PART AND FOUND THE ELDER PERFORMED BETTER ON TESTS OF STRENGTH AND MEMORY, WHICH IS FASCINATING. JOINING ME NOW, ELIZABETH, WHAT ARE THE OLD MICE GETTING OUT OF THIS FROM THE YOUNGER ONES?>>WHEN THEY TESTED THEM THEY FOUND THEY COULD DO MAZES BETTER. THEY FOUND THEY WERE STRONGER. THE OLD MOUSE COULD RUN ON A YOUNG MOUSE.ST AS LONG AS THE – THEY APPARENTLY DO MAKE TREADMILLS FOR MICE. THEY GOT THE RESULTS AND CONSISTENTLY.

I THOUGHT THAT WAS INTERESTING.>>NOT TOO PRACTICAL IN THE HUMAN WORLD. WHAT IS IT IN THE BLOOD? DO THEY KNOW?>>THEY THINK IT MAY BE A PROTEIN CALLED GDF-11, AND THAT PROMOTES NEW CELL GROWTH. THAT IS A SIGN OF BEING YOUNGER, MORE CELL GROWTH, IT’S FASTER. ONE OF THE STUDIES, THEY DIDN’T DO THE WHOLE TRANSFUSION, THEY JUST GAVE THEM THE PRO TEEN. >>SO WHAT DO WE DO WITH THIS?
