“We’ve wondered if it might be possible to simply rewind the aging clock without inducing pluripotency,” said Vittorio Sebastiano, assistant professor at Stanford University and senior author of the Nature Communications article. “Now we’ve found that tightly controlling the exposure to these proteins can promote rejuvenation in multiple human cell types, including stem cells. This has profound implications for regeneration and restoration of cell functionality of aged tissues.”

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — A study published in the respected Nature Communications journal highlights the promise of technology being developed by Turn Biotechnologies to treat age-related health conditions.

The study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine found that old human cells can be induced into a more youthful and vigorous state when they are exposed to a rejuvenating treatment that triggers the limited expression of a group of proteins known as Yamanaka factors, which are important to embryonic development.
