    Scientists are a step closer to creating 'elixir of life'

    Scientists are a step closer to creating 'elixir of life'

    The secrets of eternal youth are being unlocked by scientists.

    Experiments show that an enzyme called telomerase could be the key ingredient in an 'elixir of life'.

    Mice engineered to have extra-high levels of telomerase were bred with cancer-resistant creature with astonishing results.

    Cool Hi Max

    Thanks again for the informative post. I see you are closing in on your 15,000 th post
    lol.

    Since the days of spinewire you have been nothing short of the best poster next to Dr. Young. I hope someday there will be a time that neither one of us has to use this site and then we can all have a retirement party for Dr. Young and others. We can get DA to spring for the beer lol.

    In my opinion, the problem is not solved yet. Some studies have shown that cancer cells produce telomerase at higher than normal rates. Elixir of life needs more research.
