Anti-Aging Drugs – Just What the Doctor Ordered?

Very cool:

Early but intriguing research on mice suggests a new mechanism of aging, and possibly a way to stall it.

Drugs designed to target one aspect of aging also seem to help repair DNA damage and regulate gene activity, preventing them from going haywire with the stresses of time.

“In principle, we now could have a way of reversing the effects of aging,” said David Sinclair, a Harvard University gerontologist and co-founder of Sirtris Pharmaceuticals, a company best-known for its development of an experimental drug called resveratrol.

That is, until socialized medicine kills advances like this.
