Progeria, also known as Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome is a rare genetic disease that causes rapid aging in children. Progeria has been in the news recently, because people around the world followed the story of Kaylee Halko, who was diagnosed with progeria, and recently in an ABC interview to Barbara Walters. The story originally aired a few months ago, but escaped again Friday, July 29, to ABC 20/20.
In the inducing drug rapamycin can meet the durability of accelerated aging condition progeria, a researcher proposes a fairly comprehensive review of what it could mean for his work on normal aging. It is educational, but should be read on the condition that the author has a strong belief that the TOR gene is central to the aging process here, I discuss four possible scenarios, comparing with progeria both normal and accelerated aging This reveals further signs of rapamycin both accelerated aging, progeria and obese-Scenario 1.
Progerin is detectable in normal cells in normal elderly. in normal human fibroblasts, loss of telomeres in cellular aging activates the production of progerin. theoretically progerin can accumulate. in this scenario, normal aging is caused by progerin or at least some of the people of progerin accumulation limited life expectancy.
