PEARL Rapamycin Lifespan Campaign Banner: Rapamycin

A Groundbreaking Clinical Trial

The medicine Rapamycin has been shown to extend the healthspan of all organisms it has been tested on – mice, worms, yeast – for decades, and yet to date there has been no trial to sufficiently demonstrate safety and proper dosing for this purpose in humans. It is now time for this to change.

With your help, we will be conducting a large clinical trial named Participatory Evaluation (of) Aging (with) Rapamycin (for) Longevity Study, or PEARL, to find out. This will be the first study to see if Rapamycin works as well in humans as it does in mice (for longevity).

Rapamycin fed late in life extends lifespan in genetically heterogeneous mice

Rapamycin was the first molecule proven to extend the lifespan of a mammal/mouse, even when given late in life (Harrison, D., Strong, R., Sharp, Z. et al. 2009). It also has the potential to treat aging related diseases (Blagosklonny, 2019) such as Alzheimer’s (Spilman P. et al. 2010) or heart disease, and not to mention, boost our immune system as well (Mannick JB. et al. 2014). It is by far the most studied longevity intervention after Calorie Restriction (CR).

Rapamycin works through the mTOR signaling pathway (Kennedy and Dudley 2016), one of the master regulators of cell metabolism and a key controller of autophagy (recycling in cells). Basically, it tells our cells to switch from growth to repair, and to clean out all the garbage. Not only that, but the quality of the proteins our cells produce increases, which means that there is less garbage in the first place. What all this amounts to is improved health and lengthened life for worms, flies and mice – now it’s our turn!

The PEARL trial will follow up to 200 participants over 12 months testing four different Rapamycin dosing regimens. It will be double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled and registered with clinicaltrials.gov. The principal investigator is Dr. James P Watson at UCLA, who was also a PI for the famous TRIIM trial. To ensure safety the participants’ blood will be regularly monitored and side effects noted.

How Will We Know If It’s Working?

A battery of tests and measurements will be taken, both after 6 and 12 months. These will include autonomic health tests, blood tests, body composition tests, fecal microbiome testing, immune and inflammation health tests, methylation age clock testing and skeletal muscle tests.

With your help we will find out if and how well Rapamycin works to combat human aging. And, armed with a positive result, we will finally be able to help slow down onset of age related damage for you and those who you love and care about.

PEARL Rapamycin Lifespan Campaign Banner: Protocol

Interested patients will be screened for eligibility using AgelessRx‘s telemedicine platform. Eligible patients include those aged 50-85 of any sex or ethnicity, in relatively good health, and with only well-managed, clinically stable chronic diseases.

Once entered into the trial, the 200 patients will be divided into four dosing arms:

1. 2.5mg Rapamycin 3 times a week
2. 5mg Rapamycin once a week
3. 5mg Rapamycin twice a week
4. 10mg Rapamycin once a week

And a placebo control arm – vital for both scientific credibility and statistical analysis. We have carefully selected these dosing regimens, allowing for recovery each week and with the total dose would not exceeding the regular dose of Rapamycin used in renal transplant patients (current FDA-approved regimen).

The safety of the participants is of paramount importance, so, apart from watching out for any side effects, their blood will be monitored by looking at CBC, electrolytes, lipids, liver and renal function.

The following tests will be conducted for evaluating efficacy:

1. Autonomic health tests – including baseline (am) heart rate and baseline (am) heart rate variability testing.
2. Blood tests – Standard measures of risk of age-associated diseases (glucoregulatory markers, lipids), and markers of inflammation.
3. Body composition testing with DXA scans – measuring bone density as well as visceral fat content.
4. Fecal Microbiome testing.
5. Immune Health Tests – including CD4/CD8 ratio, CMV IgG, TNFɑ, hsCRP, and IL-6.
6. Methylation age – clock testing (e.g. Horvath clock, GrimAge).
7. Skeletal muscle tests – including lean body mass on DXA scan.
8. Physiological data – wearable devices (steps, HRV, etc).

The results of the trial will be published in an open access peer reviewed scientific journal.
In addition the data generated in the trial will be made available to any party.

PEARL Rapamycin Lifespan Campaign Banner: Budget

PEARL_Budget_PieChart

The most significant parts of our budget reflect the costs of performing of tests described in the PEARL protocol above — lab tests such as metabolic panels and insulin level analysis, and other tests such as microbiome and epigenetic clock biomarker testing — with the the remainder being allocated to sourcing the required amounts of Rapamycin and trial administration. While we’ve been able to mitigate costs thanks to the generous collaboration of Dr. Mikhail Blagosklonny at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, James Clement at Better Humans, Adam Kadela at DexaFit, TruDiagnostic, GERO.ai, Mayo Clinic Translational Geroscience Network, Young.ai, and many others, it is still prohibitively expensive to run such a study with 200 participants. It is only thanks to the additional support of people like you that we will together be able to launch this trial, and answer key questions about Rapamycin’s efficacy to combat aging in humans.

PEARL Rapamycin Lifespan Campaign Banner: Goals

$75,000 — Initial Goal
Reaching our initial campaign goal will enable us to launch the PEARL trial to examine the healthspan extending effects of Rapamycin in humans. These funds, together with the generous support of our collaborators, will allow us to enroll 200 participants in this important study and run a battery of tests at the 6 month and 12 month mark: including autonomic health tests, blood tests, immune health tests, and skeletal muscle tests, along with more specialized testing at the 12 month mark: including microbiome testing, body composition testing via DXA scans, and methylation age testing with epigenetic markers such as the Horvath clock and GrimAge.
Estimated study duration: ~12 months.
PEARL Goals - Initial Goal - PEARL Trial Launch
$120,000 — Stretch Goal 1
Attaining our first stretch goal will allow us to perform our entire battery of tests – including the specialized microbiome testing, body composition testing via DXA scans, and methylation age testing with epigenetic markers such as the Horvath clock and GrimAge — at the 6 month mark instead of only at the 12 month mark. Not only will this give us additional data points for longitudinal analysis, but will also be helpful in determining the minimal period of time Rapamycin dosing is required to see meaningful changes. All donors to this campaign at the $25 level or higher will be able to share in this process of discovery, seeing this data as soon as it becomes available.
Estimated study duration: same as initial goal.
PEARL Goals - Stretch Goal 1 - Additional Testing
$165,000 — Stretch Goal 2
Reaching our final stretch goal will allow us to perform an entirely new set of proteomics testing at both the 6 month and 12 month mark. This is important because protein biomarkers can provide valuable insights into age related changes (Johnson A. et al. 2020) as well provide a comprehensive picture of chronic inflammation (Furman D. et al. 2019), a driving force behind age-related deterioration – “inflamm-aging”. It will also allow us to study the effect on proteins associated with immune system pathways, which is particularly important given Rapamycin’s known impact on immune system function. Including these tests within PEARL will therefore allow us collectively to gain the maximum amount of information we can regarding both the efficacy and safety of Rapamycin dosing regimens.
Estimated study duration:  same as initial goal.
PEARL Goals - Stretch Goal 2 - Proteomics Testing
What Happens Next?

This first trial/phase is just the start.

It will be followed by a second trial/phase which will follow a larger number of participants over a longer period of time using the most effective dosing regime from the first trial/phase. It will also incorporate combinations with additional longevity drugs such as Metformin to assess any synergy with Rapamycin.

Furthermore, if this low cost and philanthropy funded trial succeeds, it will enable other longevity interventions to be tested – from generic drugs, to stem cell-based therapies, and beyond. Eventually, this will lead to the roll out of a wider variety of longevity interventions to the general public.

With your help, we can help transform the health of millions.

Thank you for your support!

    Hi there,
    This sounds like an interesting clinical trial.
    I might have interested funders for your project.
    Please provide more information on your clinical study, stage, and company along with how we can be involved.
    Kind regards,

  2. Tom Moya Schau Moya

    Thank you for the great work, I hope you will reach the funding goal very soon! :)

    I was wondering about the “Receive all tests that make up the PEARL protocol” reward – are these tests simple to do at home, or would I need to find some medical person who is willing to do them with me?
    And do these tests ship worldwide (in my case to Europe), or are there problems due to interesting chemicals in them?

    • anar Anar

      Hi Moya,
      Thanks for your question and interest.
      The tests are NOT do at home tests. They will be collected by specialized phlebotomists who would come to participants residences, collect blood and send it to the blood bank.

      We currently don’t have a plan for offering this service to folks in Europe. I would need to research this to see
      1. if we can have a phlebotomist perform blood draw in Europe
      2. if they can ship blood to blood bank in US in an appropriately timely manner.

      I will try to find an answer as soon as possible but in the meantime, I am afraid that the answer is that it is not available in Europe.

      Anar

      • Tom Moya Schau Moya

        Thank you very much – it would have been silly to go for this particular reward and to then not be able to make use of it.

        I think I will just go for a different backing amount then – no problem at all. :)

  3. jokerspet1 joker Karlsson

    I would love to be one of the 200 test subject. How do i volunteer?

    • anar Anar

      Thanks for your question.
      This is the first of potentially many trials. If this trial’s unique philanthropy- and citizen- funded method ends up working successfully it will open the door for other trials; D/Q being one of them.

      • Neil Christensen Neil Christensen

        Awesome! I look forward to supporting many more! I agree senolytics is a great target. I would also love to see an NBE human clinical trial, probably with recombinant human serum albumin, in the near term.

  4. Donovan Breone louisbreone

    Does the PEARL trial have the same purpose as the TAME trial ?

    That is , provide strong evidence that rapamycin can , like metformin in the TAME trial , target aging and thus prevent most age-related diseases?

    And in the long term, could rapamycin be approved for aging when there is sufficient evidence , as the TAME trial with metformin hopes ?

  5. contact1 Art

    Main or only problem is to find the “correct” individual dosage ! A very tricky difficulty. Learn from resTORbio´s failure

  6. Tom Moya Schau Moya

    As we are getting close to reaching the first Stretch Goal I was wondering:
    The text says that the first Stretch Goal is at $120,000, but the little progress bar on the right says that the first Stretch Goal is at $125,000.
    So which one is it? :)

  7. Steven Kaye Steven

    Now that you’ve hit the 2nd stretch goal, can you comment on what will be done with additional funds beyond the $150k?

    • anar anar

      Hi Steven,
