STEM CELL BREAKTHROUGHS THAT CAN INCREASE LIFE EXPECTANCY



Made to Order Organs Created With a Person's Own Stem Cells



On June 9th the 1st Synthetically grown trachea was implanted in Stockholm, Sweden.



1st artificial heart created with stem cells...

- The "existing structure of a donor heart" was used, then repopulated with a patients own stem cells.



The restoration of eyesite with stem cells...

- Scientists "repaired damaged corneas" in mice, with injections of stem cells.



GENETIC RESEARCH THAT MAY PROLONG THE LENGTH OF HUMAN LIFE



Lifespan of round worms increased by 30%...

- Researchers blocked specific genes which led to an increase in average lifespan; equivalent to 97 years in humans.



Modifing a gene in flies doubled lifespan...

- Gene restricts calorie absorbtion on a cellar level. Literally named the "I'm Not Dead Yet" Gene.



Deletion of SIR2 Gene Doubles Lifespan of Yeast Cells

- Doctors believe this may shift an organism into "extreme survival mode" on the cellular level.



BETTER TREATMENT FOR THE 4 MAIN LIFESTYLE DISEASES: OBESITY, HEART DISEASE, DIABETES, AND HYPERTENSION



Mice Immune to Obesity After Gene Manipulation

- PAI-1 gene inhibition stopped obesity, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes in mice



Reversal of Type 1 Diabetes with Stem Cells

- Researchers in Brazil successfully reversed type 1 diabetes in 15 patients



Discovery of Gene Varient That Protects Against Stroke + Heart Disease...

- UMOD Gene can regulate levels of substance called "uromoduline". Varient can reduce risk of stroke and heart problems in humans.
