Aging Breakthrough: Scientists Find Way To Rejuvenate The Old Human Cells Making Them Young Again

Scientists discovered a way to rejuvenate old human cells.

Scientists have discovered a way to rejuvenate the human’s old cells known as senescent cells, in which they made them active or young again. They found in the treatment that the older cells started dividing and had longer telomeres, which are chromosomes caps that shorten as humans age.

The findings of the study were published in the journal BMC Cell Biology. It was led by Professor Lorna Harries, a professor of Molecular Genetics at the University of Exeter and other colleagues. The study was funded by the Dunhill Medical Trust, according to Medical Xpress.

In the study, the scientists discovered that splicing factors, which is a class of genes, could be switched back on by applying chemicals known as the resveratrol analogs. These chemicals are based on a substance that could be found in dark chocolate, red wine, blueberries, and red grapes. The chemicals triggered the splicing factors and within hours, the senescent cells became younger and started to behave younger and start dividing.
