Rapamycin, drug typically used in cancer therapy, emerges as powerful anti-aging remedy

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Scientists say medication also used after undergoing an organ transplant is capable of extending life with only brief use

COLOGNE, Germany — A drug that patients normally take during cancer therapy may have the power to increase the human lifespan, a new study reveals. Researchers in Germany say rapamycin can cause side-effects when patients take it as a lifelong anti-aging treatment. However, their new report finds even brief usage can have a dramatic impact on longevity while cutting down on side-effects.

Brief Exposure to Rapamycin Has the Same Anti-aging Effects as Lifelong Treatment

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Summary: Brief exposure to Rapamycin, a promising anti-aging drug that has positive effects on health and lifespan, has the same effect as long-term exposure to the drug in animal models. The findings pave the way for testing the effects of short-term rapamycin exposure on the lifespan of humans.

Metformin & Rapamycin Show Combined Benefits in New Study

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

They boost each other and block side effects? (In mice)


Rapamycin and metformin are viewed by many as the two most promising anti-aging drugs, but now scientists have found that these drugs can work hand in hand and show combined benefits, boosting each other’s effectiveness and blocking side effects — or at least that’s what we’ve seen in mice.
