Multiple drugs
In a new study published in Aging Cell, researchers have tested several individual drugs and a combination of rapamycin plus acarbose as potential life extension agents in genetically heterogeneous mice [1]. Anti-aging agent testing Identification of successful anti-aging interventions is arguably one of the most challenging research problems to date. In addition to the complexity...
Drug combination
Scientists have shown that a combination of rapamycin, acarbose, and phenylbutyrate has a synergetic rejuvenation effect when administered to 20-month-old mice for three months [1]. Fighting on multiple fronts In this paper, the authors argue that to tackle such a multifaced process as aging, it might be beneficial to target different molecular pathways using several...
