REFERENCE: ABSTRACT ERA 001 ACP 2007, San Diego
The prospect of modulating the activity of “longevity genes” to extend life was held out at a special session of the ACP Internal Medicine annual meeting in San Diego. Nir Barzilai, Director of the Institute for Aging Research in New York, presented data from his group’s study of patients up to 100 years old and over which have shown that specific genes are related to longevity and freedom from physical illness. Afterwards he talked about his findings and the clinical opportunities they present with Peter Goodwin.
