X10 Young Blood
On this episode of X10, we talk about a plasma transfusion experiment that studied what happens when young plasma is injected into older animals. Script Is the blood of the young really an elixir of youth? Can it keep us healthy as we age, and, if so, what hidden components give it this great power?...
Before we begin, it should be noted that this study was published on biorxiv, a pre-print website that hosts papers prior to peer review. Therefore the data should not be regarded as conclusive or accurate until it has been subject to the peer review process and accepted for journal publication. Please keep that in mind...
Biohackers after blood transfer
We interviewed a group of Russian biohackers who performed a plasma dilution experiment on themselves. This experiment, the first of its kind, was based on previous mouse studies by Drs. Irina and Michael Conboy. Some molecules, while essential for various body functions, can be harmful when overproduced. Inflammatory cytokines, such as transforming growth factor beta...
Electric brain
There has been a great deal of interest in the last few years in the potential regenerative properties of blood factors. This has led to two broad schools of thought: one in which there are regenerative factors in young blood that can be isolated, and another in which aged blood contains regenerative factors that cannot...
Blood cells
A team of researchers, including Dr. Tony Wyss-Coray, co-founder of Alkahest, has discovered that exposing young cells to aged blood causes their gene expression to become akin to aged cells. Signaling cells to act older We have known from the heterochronic parabiosis and plasmapheresis research performed by Dr. Irina Conboy's lab and similar work done...
On this episode of Journal Club, Dr. Oliver Medvedik presents a study from the Conboy research laboratory in which aged blood factors are diluted in the blood plasma of old mice using saline and albumin, which provides rejuvenative effects in brain, liver, and muscle tissues
