MODERN BIOTECHNOLOGICAL APPROACHES TO LIFESPAN EXTENSION OF ANIMALS AND HUMANS E. L. Levitsky

Biotechnologia Acta V. 10, No 2, 2017, Р. 7-21, Bibliography 49, English

Abstract:
The purpose of the research was to analyze current data concerning the problem of extending the life of multicellular animals and humans. The modern views about the processes of aging and prolongation of life are presented. The analysis focused on the genetic mechanisms of aging and mainly biotechnological approaches (genetic engineering, gene therapy, the use of stem cells, and the reprogramming of the genome) to prolong the life of multicellular organisms. For comparison, some traditional methods of prolonging life are described (drug therapy, exercise training, calorically restricted nutrition). This analysis allows   to postulate the perspectives and advantages of using biotechnological methods for prolonging life in comparison with traditional ones.
