Infusions of Young Blood Reverses Aging in Mice, Study FindsDownload audio (MP3)
Infusing blood from young mice into older ones reversed signs of aging according to three studies published on Sunday. The injected mice showed improved memory, muscle tone and endurance, among other effects. The findings have potential implications for Alzheimer's and dementia patients, and plans are already in the works to start clinical trials on humans. We'll discuss the findings of the studies, which were conducted by researchers at UCSF, Stanford and Harvard.
