SENS is a research group that is researching the field of biotechnology. The research group is trying to develop a drug that can reduce the degenerative aging process in human beings. This group aims to assist the people to have a stress free old age life. It is sad that the people who are aged right now have to deal with problems of health problems when they are now ready to sit down and enjoy life after years of toiling. Old age is today associated with medical problems that are affecting the old people. Through the efforts of the SENS group and other experts who are happy with this research work, we might have a solution soon. A breakthrough in the field would be attractive to anyone since we all have to get old at some point.
Jason Hope has supported this group with a donation of half a million dollars which they have used in building a research laboratory while other funds have been used to start a program called AGE-breaker. The AGE-breaker is a program that accepts drugs that have shown the ability to slow down the aging process causing substance in the body. There are minimum conditions that have been set to determine which drug qualifies as an anti-aging drug. Most of the research work is still ongoing, and hopefully, there will be a solution in the next few years.
Jason Hope supported the initiative because of the potential that it carries. If a drug is developed, many people will benefit. Aging diseases such as cancer and Parkinson’s disease will be greatly reduced. Through the efforts of SENS, the problems that old people go through of battling medical problems may be over.
SENS has attributed the delay in a breakthrough in this research since for a long time; researchers thought that the aging process in small lab animals is similar to aging in human beings. Drugs that have been created in the past have not generated any impact in human beings. Now that this has become evident research which is human-based will be done and hopefully this time we will have a drug that is working.
