The Fountain of Youth: An Israeli study unveils a mechanism for rejuvenating human organs Israel today


A two-decade study by Rambam and the Technion found that injecting a special protein into the skin rejuvenated it cosmetically, and even genetically • During the experiment, signs of the aging process disappeared, and even molecules identified with only young skin appeared.

Has the way been found to live forever?

An Israeli study found that the injection of a special protein called VEGF-A causes the process of rejuvenation of the skin in an elderly person, and apparently in the special discovery there is an opening for stopping old age, and even for rejuvenation of human organs.

This is a groundbreaking study, jointly by Maimonides and the Technion, which proves that the process of aging human skin can be stopped and even human organs made younger. This is a study that lasted more than 20 years, and is now published in the prestigious scientific journal Advanced Science News.

The process of skin regeneration

Prof. Amos Gilhar, the lead researcher of the study, explains: "We have previously demonstrated that human skin grafting on older mice on young mice induces regeneration of the epidermis of the transplanted skin. The follow-up study, which lasted about two decades, revealed Only when the old skin is implanted on a young mouse, and not on an old mouse. "

In this study, it was found that the regeneration of old skin is characterized not only by the external appearance of the skin, but also by the regeneration of the genetic structure, in the form that characterizes young skin.

Indeed, signs of the aging process have disappeared as a result of the transplant.

Furthermore, molecules identified with only young skin have appeared, whose disappearance is part of the aging process.

Improvement in aging indices

Significant evidence that VEGF-A protein is a crucial factor in the regeneration of the old skin was obtained by injecting the protein into the old skin when it was implanted on an old mouse.

This injection caused the disappearance of the aging properties of the skin, and the appearance of all the molecular and structural components of young skin.

Also, in old human skin treated with the special protein under laboratory conditions, even without animal involvement, there was an improvement in the main aging indices.

The said study, therefore, identifies VEGF-A as a factor that allows rejuvenation of human organs.
