ABSTRACT
Provides information on various studies on anti-aging aimed to extend man's life span. Findings of molecular geneticists at the University of Southern California that deleting a gene known to prolong aging ended up extending lifespan; Discovery of effective treatments for the common ailments of aging, such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes; Focus of companies on therapies involving stem cells, the basic cells of life, each of which is capable of growing into any type of cell.
