Personal health and longevity of life has advanced a great deal over the last 50 years. In fact, the life expectancy of both men and women has significantly increased in the last half century. This in part is because of modern medicine and an increase in understanding health. Today, through public awareness campaigns people understand and take better care of their bodies than they ever have before.
Mikhail Blagosklonny is a world renown scientist who was born and educated in Russia. He received his M.D. in the field of Internal Medicine from The First Pavlov State Medical University of St.Petersburg and went on to receive his Ph.D in Experimental Medicine from the same university. His first work in the United States started in 2002 when Mikhail was hired as the Associate Professor of Medicine at New York Medical College. He went on to become one of the senior scientists at Ordway Research Institute. In 2009, he became the professor of Oncology at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. His primary focus since earning his degrees, has been working with the predominant issues of medicine that involve: cancer, cell rejuvenation, anti-aging and cardiovascular health.

One of his greatest medical theories has been to work on reversing the process of aging through cell regeneration. This of course was a large part of his educational background including research and development and is his defined passion in medicine. In his present work on the human body’s process of aging, Mikhail Blagosklonny has been a loud voice in the theory of reverse aging. Through his research and years of work he has become the author of what is known as “the aging hyperfunction theory”. It is his belief that the body ages throughout the whole bodily system in ways that can be reversed through the use of newly created medicines. These medicines are ones that are designed to counter the effects of aging and focus on cell regeneration and rejuvenation. This, he believes will allow people’s life expectancy to substantially increase as diseases of the body with regenerated cells become increasingly mitigated.
For most modern science, the idea of a ‘Fountain of youth drug’ seemed far-fetched. However, in 2014 with the introduction of the new drug Rapamycin by drug manufacturer Novartis, made the idea of discovering the ‘Fountain of Youth drug’, not so far off. The goal of this drug in its trial stages has been to work on cell rejuvenation and regeneration which will help delay the effects of aging and its correlation to disease throughout the body. Doing this, thereby helps older adults to live longer healthier lives. Read more on templeofthecave.com
At present, there are some side effects that requires further analysis to understand the extent of harmful side effects that the drug creates. One of the present concerns is what is known as a diabetic mimicking syndrome. Through continued trials it appears they have made progress on the drugs known side effects. On reviewing the positive analysis of Rapamycin, the drug seems to show it has positive anti-tumor, bone-sparing effects. The focus now is to understand what can be done to modify Rapamycin in ways to mitigate any significant harmful side effects for patients. Doing this will enhance the drugs overall acceptability in the world of medicine as an anti-aging, disease preventing drug that becomes more accepted, more widely distributed and prescribed for the general population.
