Reverse Aging

Remember the name “Inserm”!

An arm of the French Health Ministry recently rejuvenated cells from an elderly donor, 100 or so years old. The
old cells were re-programmed by the researchers, which turned the old cells into what are called I.P.S.C. or induced (genetically engineered} pluti-potent stem cells.

According to Dr. LeMaitre, one of the principal investigators, signs of aging were reversed. The stem cells that were produced could differentiate into various cell lives ie: bone cells or cartilage cells.

The research is exciting!

I like to follow these developments as they relate to my Fort Myers plastic surgery practice. Let me know if you find them interesting, please.
