In a series of new trials, researchers have found that injecting the blood plasma of 18-year-old humans into old mice rejuvenates both the body and brain, improving cognition and allowing them to frolic about like their younger counterparts.
According to Sakura Minami, of Alkahest, some of the factors that give young blood its power have now been identified – but, the team will not reveal them yet.
The researchers say these findings could one day help them to develop anti-aging treatments, and could even help people with Alzheimer’s disease.
Human trails have already begun to test this hypothesis.
