Human Trials of Plasma Exchange

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Animal experiments demonstrating the anti-aging effects of exchanging young blood plasma for old have been prominent in the last two months. Several groups are saying it’s time to translate their findings into human trials. But I’ve recently learned that others have been doing this for several years. What can we learn from their results to guide the next steps in experimentation?

I had never heard of Grifols, the Spanish pharmaceutical company that is the world’s largest supplier of albumin. Since 2005, Grifols has been quietly funding world leaders in plasma exchange research in humans. Albutein ® is their brand-name solution of human albumin.

Last month, the first results of the Grifol’s AMBAR trial were released. (AMBAR stands for A lzheimer’s M odulation B y A lbumin R eplacement). It was a much larger-scale phase 2.5 trial, with 496 subjects recruited from sites in Spain and USA, and treated for 14 months. A single treatment consisted of removing 2.5 to 3 litres of blood (more than half the body’s inventory) and replacing it with Albutein. Patients began with 6 weekly treatments, and thereafter there were 12 monthly smaller plasma replacements (0.7 litres), again with Albutein.

Building a Factory for Human Organs

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, life extension

Dean Kamen, the inventor of the Segway, is currently spearheading a project to convert part of the old New Hampshire textile plant into a factory for lab-grown lungs, livers, and other organs for transplantation — and he doesn’t think it’ll take long to do it.

The nonprofit is like a club for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine researchers. Groups must have something to offer in order to join (money, equipment, experience), but once a part of ARMI, they gain access to the other members’ research and resources.

Stem Cells: The Key to Reversing Biological Age

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Fantastic article on Dr Yuancheng Ryan Lu’s age reversal experiment.

“ It suggests that it is entirely possible to reverse aging in cells with the use of a molecular mechanism already present in the cells. And so, scientists are now off to the races in the hopes of finding this cellular mechanism, and ways to activate this correction system in living beings…”

In 2006, Dr. Shinya Yamanaka, a Japanese stem cell researcher, published his paper on induced pluripotent stem cells, and it changed the medical world. Dr. Yamanaka had found a way to convert a mature skin cell into a stem cell by injecting just a few genes. And for this, Dr. Yamanaka received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2012, sharing it with another Sir John B. Gurdon, who found another method of inducing pluripotency.

David Sinclair seeks £100m for anti-aging fight

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics, life extension

One of the world’s greatest anti-aging scientists continues his groundbreaking efforts. In the photo next to Dr David Sinclair, there is a fella who kind of looks like my friend, Dr Yuancheng Ryan Lu. Is that you? (Dr Lu has confirmed that he is indeed the scientist on the right. Dr Sinclair is on the left.)

I can’t wait to see what they develop next!

Harvard scientist David Sinclair is one of Longevity’s big hitters. Just a year after raising $50M in Series B financing, his company Life Biosciences LLC is looking for $100M to progress its anti-aging research [1].

Lab Mice Telomeres Do Not Break Them as Disease Models

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

With comments from Aubrey de Grey.

Bret Weinstein was interviewed on the Joe Rogan show and Bret claimed that the breeding protocols and telomeres of lab mice are broken. Bret claims that this problem is so severe that it calls into question the safety and correctness of decades of pharmaceutical studies.

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

#nugencis #nugenicsresearch #humanlongevity #agereversal #blissatomic
Dr. Harold has been a pioneer in the field of cancer research, in the development of modern aspects of gene hunting and sequencing. He carries expertise in bioinformatics, chronobiology, and biotechnology and is currently working in the capacity of Chief Technical Officer at Nugenics Research Pvt Ltd. exploring in anti-aging modalities.
They recently released a paper online on #biorxiv regarding their breakthrough research on Human Age Reversal using Young Blood #plasma, the paper’s authors include recognized Longevity academician Steve Horvath.

The paper also caught the attention of #davidsinclair the leading researcher/voice in the field of Human Longevity.
Dr Katcher spoke about how & why he moved from cancer research to Human Longevity, his research & results of 54% age reversal in Rats, his partner #akshaysanghavi, the future road map/timelines on how & when this might be commercially available.
