Agent slows aging in mice

...es of this sort in the right way,” he says. In six to 10 months, once all the mice in the control group have died, the scientists will get answers to the really burning question: Will the mice fed NDGA, already well past middle age, live past the normal outer limit of old age" The longest that mice o...

Brain inflammation may be friend, not foe, for Alzheimer's patients
