Blocking a single protein, 15-PGDH, restores mass and strength in old mice's wasted muscles.

So when will we be able to get this small molecule that blocks the 15pgdh protein?

This is huge.... Bigger than NAD and bigger than senescent cell compounds. One thing I am curious about is if it restores heart muscle cells. If so this is revolutionary if it maps into humans.

By actual count this is the 261st major breakthrough this year that we are still waiting on the results for and #3,733,021 since 2000. I just hope its of some significant benefit like resveratrol was even though it was hyped to the clouds and never could meet expectations. If this turns out not to be super expensive and does even 1/4 of the hype, it will be a real breakthrough. Its supposed to be a small molecule, can't be that hard to make.

 

Soon as we find something that seems to tie it all together, we find its more complicated than that. Such as rapamycin which I'm still taking, pterostilbene, sulforaphane, turmeric and so on. They are all a piece of the puzzle. None is the final answer to indefinite lifespan or healthspan. 

 

Little groups of insiders like us will be enjoying the benefits of these and other compounds while the ignorant sheep die young. It has to be like that because there is no controlling population growth and if everyone lives to 100 it could get... interesting
