BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT)-

Turning back the clock on aging! Could it be possible? Scientists say with the help of stem cells, we could be closer than we think.

Scientists at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and the Ulm University Medicine in Germany bring new perspective to what has been a life science controversy – countering what used to be broad consensus that the aging of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) was locked in by nature and not reversible by therapeutic intervention.

HSCs are stem cells that originate in the bone marrow and generate all of the body's red and white blood cells and platelets. They are an essential support mechanism of blood cells and the immune system. As humans and other species age, HSCs become more numerous but less effective at regenerating blood cells and immune cells. This makes older people more susceptible to infections and disease, including leukemia. Read More
