It may sound like an idea out of a science fiction movie, but human organ rejuvenation may soon be possible! More and more studies are being conducted on mice to test the possibility of organ rejuvenation in humans. The science is still very much in the testing and development phase, but some of the results have been promising.
What is VEGF-A and what part can it play in human organ rejuvenation?
In a study where older and aged human skin was grafted onto young mice, scientists were able to spot some marked improvements in the older skin. One of the main factors in the process, vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A), is a continued source of fascination for scientists. Bio-markers such as VEGF-A may play an important role in human organ rejuvenation, according to the results of recent studies. Key aging parameters in human skin are improved by alterations made to VEGF-A, which is then injected into the skin.
These studies have shown scientists that by making alterations to VEGF-A, it is quite possible that it can then help to repair and rejuvenate human skin and other organs. Human organ rejuvenation remains a topic that is at the forefront of the study of and searches for anti-aging technology. Even though there is no real fountain of youth, pharmaceutical companies continue to search for one! These studies could be the beginning of fascinating discoveries.
As scientific discoveries continue to unlock health improvements that can help humans as they age, the world looks on closely. The ramifications of these recent studies with human skin and mice could be the start of a new era in human medicine. The possibilities are endless if a way to stop or reverse human aging, particularly in organs, is discovered. Putting this knowledge into action has the potential to help so many people throughout the world. As we wait to see what happens as these scientific studies progress, it is exciting to imagine what the future of human health may look like!
As science continues to explore the possibility of human organ rejuvenation, we can continue to be amazed by the progress! Maybe one day soon this technology will be available to help humans overcome age and disease.
