Experimental Drugs Boost Elderly Immune Systems, Raising Hopes For Anti-Aging Effects

Scientists on the hunt for anti-aging drugs say they've made an advance with tantalizing potential: Two experimental drugs appear to safely boost the immune systems of elderly humans.

The researchers stress that more research is needed to confirm the findings and show the drugs are safe. And at least one researcher says the findings are based on a relatively small number of people and used methods that could produce misleading results.

Still, many researchers say the findings are encouraging.

"I think the results are quite exciting," says Felipe Sierra , director of the division of aging biology at the National Institute on Aging.

For the study, researchers tested very low doses of two drugs. One, called RAD001, is used to fight cancer and prevent rejection in organ transplant patients. The other, known as BEZ235, was developed as a cancer drug. Both drugs, known as TORC1 inhibitors, affect a crucial cellular pathway that plays a role in the immune system and other biological functions. Similar drugs were previously linked to extending the lifespans of lab animals.

I just came home with my dog from the vet. (might be pericarditis). Vet took 50ml blood out of his heart :(?

The story:

Last night I took my dog for a walk in the park. We walked about a half a mile and he was alright sniffing around. Wanted to start running with him but he suddenly lost his cheerfulness. Raised his butt up a bit (thought he had


This is a very serious condition and you need to be realistic that a cure is very unlikely to happen. I know that's difficult, but sadly is true.

The pericardium is the SACK around the heart& istis means inflammation.
So the "diagnosis" word only means swollen sack-NOT what caused it.

A "cure" is highly unlikely.
