Time to reverse your age and restore youth.

Scientists at a San Diego-based biotech company Rejuvenate Bio claim to have increased the age of mice by reprogramming their genes. They believe their gene therapy actually works like a reverse aging technique that one day might be used for rejuvenating humans.

Their lifespan increased by about seven percent after the introduction of the genes.

The researchers introduced three reprogramming genes into mice that had a remaining lifespan of about nine weeks. Interestingly, the mice survived for 18 weeks after the gene therapy. The tested mice were like 77-year-old humans before the gene therapy.
