"It’s been proven that all humans lose stem cells as we age. These adult stem cells reside in “niches” in our organs and bone marrow, and are responsible for replenishing dead cells and growing new ones. We need stem cells to grow hair, maintain organs, and heal wounds. All of this slows down as we age and our stem cell reserves are depleted. But there’s one type of adult stem cell that serves as a “master regulator” of all other stem cells, Hare explained. Mesenchymal stem cells, which are found all over the body, including the lining of blood vessels, orchestrate the replenishing activity in tissue, organs, and bone marrow. Hare’s hypothesis was that by boosting the supply of these master stem cells in older people, it could replenish stem cells across the body and combat the symptoms of frailty."

"Two clinical trials have shown that Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are safe and highly effective in treating age-related frailty. Buoyed by the success of their initial trials, scientists from the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine are now moving their research into larger trials. Once these steps have been completed, the stem cell-based technology could be the first anti-aging treatment to get the approval from the FDA."

"Scientists have been chasing the “fountain of youth” for centuries. Now a startup backed by Silicon Valley-based accelerator Y Combinator says it may be within reach of that utopian goal. Forever Labs, based in Michigan, is researching therapies that would use your own stem cells to treat age-related diseases like Alzheimer’s, strokes and cardio vascular disease. But the ultimate goal is to take it one step further. “What we’re most excited about is the ability to use these cells potentially to treat aging itself,” said founder and CEO Steven Clausnitzer."

"There’s no medicine to prevent signs of aging like fatigue, muscle weakness and loss of balance. But as scientists work to unlock the mysteries of why some 80-year-olds must live in nursing homes while others play tennis every week, researchers with the University of Miami’s Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute said they found the beginnings of what may be the first therapeutic treatment for frailty, a common condition of aging that can lead to falls and other adverse events."

"The results of two human clinical trials into a stem cell therapy that can reverse symptoms of age-associated frailty have been published, and the indications are that this landmark treatment is both safe and strikingly effective in tackling key factors in aging."

"Stem cells in the brain determine how quickly our bodies age, researchers have noted. But by introducing fresh stem cells, part of the aging process could be slowed down or reversed, a new study finds."

"Researchers have shown they can reverse the aging process for human adult stem cells, which are responsible for helping old or damaged tissues regenerate. The findings could lead to medical treatments that may repair a host of ailments that occur because of tissue damage as people age. A research group led by the Buck Institute for Research on Aging and the Georgia Institute of Technology conducted the study in cell culture, which appears in the September 1, 2011 edition of the journal Cell Cycle."
