The first experiments have extended the life of experimental mice.
Tests of the bacteria, due to which people will be able to live up to 100-140 years old, held in Novosibirsk Akademgorodok in the Institute of Chemical Biology and Fundamental Medicine, SB RAS.
A unique drug for age identified from the rock, which was found on Mamontova Mountain in Yakutia. The age of rocks, situated in the permafrost zone, has more than a million years. Manages major research Ph.D. Vladimir Repin.
– As long as bacteria are two names: Bacillus F Brushkova and bacterium-named Anatolia Brushkova known Cryology, which is considered the pioneer of a new bacterium – tells Life News senior fellow at the Institute of Chemical Biology and Fundamental Medicine, SB RAS Hope Mironov. – We have a lab full swing experiments on fruit flies that receive the bacteria with food, and in mice, which bacteria is introduced by intramuscular injection.
According to Hope Mironova, in the course of experiments it was learned that life is extended by rodents 308 days. Average life expectancy in mice – 589 days, and after the introduction of “bacteria longevity” rodents lived 897 days. In fruit flies after eating food with bacteria observed increase in muscle activity.
Scientists have launched them into a glass tube and watched the length of the path, which could undergo an insect. And the insects, bacteria have received the food, were longer way than normal flies, in the diet did not include the bacteria.
– If you compare the life of mice with a man, the rodents live 589 days, but man – 80 years – said Nadezhda Mironov. – Since the introduction of bacteria in their lives prolonged half. That is, a person can live for 35-40 years longer. While scientists have any side effects not revealed, despite the fact that such procedures for the introduction of bacteria for any living organism – stress.
In the future, scientists plan to gradually complicate experiments to bring the work to clinical trials testing the bacteria as a drug.
