Regenerative medicine: antiaging and fast healing

Researchers at the Babraham Institute in the UK managed to turn back the clock 30 years for human skin cells.

As we age, cells typically introduce errors in their code as they replicate, resulting in continuous deterioration of the body seen over time.  The new method stops the reprogramming of the cells that allows the researchers to find the precise balance between reprogramming cells, making them biologically younger.

The new treatment was completed without the cells losing any of their specialized functions.  They not only appear younger but actually function like young cells too.  While the research is still very much in its early stages, the results are extraordinary, with several important potential applications.  It can speed up healing in patients and treat other age-related diseases and disorders.
