A study published in the journal 'Nature'
reported that scientists at the Mayo Clinic had been able to eliminate certain signs of aging from mice in the laboratory. The authors said this may lead to similar developments against the physical effects of aging in humans.
From the article:
The researchers looked at three symptoms of old age: formation of cataracts in the eye; the wasting away of muscle tissue; and the loss of fat deposits under the skin, which keep it smooth.
Researchers said the onset of these symptoms was "dramatically delayed" when the animals were treated with the drug.
