The method we use to manage illness is changing with the new form of medicine. Could it turn out to be an effective anti-aging solution in those seeking to bring some years younger? Let’s take a closer look.
Clinical trials are currently in progress to find out if gene therapy is capable in preventing aging. The treatment itself currently being tested in Colombia and is claimed to will increase the length of human telomeres that are among major factors that cause aging. It is believed that aging is an incurable disease. This is why clinical trials are being conducted like they would for any new treatment that aims to stop or treat an existing disease.

Though gene therapy could be the most likely treatment option for reverse and prevention of aging, it is not currently the most affordable. More research could prove this is an accessible treatment that is accessible to all people of life.
