Abstract

Recent studies on parabiosis between young and old animals have discovered that young blood has a powerful rejuvenating effect on skeletal and cardiac muscles, as well as on the brain of older animals. These results suggest that there is something in the young systemic environment that may possess anti-aging properties. The results have recently been attributed to a circulating protein by the name of GDF11. Recent controversies, related challenges, and a futher outlook are highlighted and examined further.
