Anti-Aging Science

1 March 2002

Leonid Gavrilov

Dear Colleagues,

I thought that perhaps this scientific community may be interested to know about the existence of legitimate anti-aging studies published in reputable scientific journals by established researchers.

Here is a sample example of such studies (21 references). The terms like 'anti-aging' in the titles of the publications are highlighted in CAPITAL letters.

Cavallini G, Donati A, Gori Z, Pollera M, Bergamini E. The protection of rat liver autophagic proteolysis from the age-related decline co-varies with the duration of ANTI-AGEING food restriction. Exp Gerontol 2001 36(3):497-506
