Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Long-lived roundworms helped identify new anti-aging compounds among FDA-approved drugs

(Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech)) Researchers from Gero, Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, and University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences collaborated to derive a transcriptomic signature of aging, which they confirmed using large transcriptomic databases. They discovered that aging in nematodes is partially programmed and can be therapeutically reversed by a number of FDA-approved drugs. The study is published in Scientific Reports.
