Cambridge scientists have restored the skin cells of a 53-year-old woman to the level of a 23-year-old. They hope to obtain the same results with different bodily tissues. The ultimate goal is to find solutions for ailments that affect older people, such as diabetes, heart disease, and neurological issues. The procedure is the same as when Dolly the cloned sheep was created almost 25 years ago. Prof. Wolf Reik of the Babraham Institute in Cambridge, the team’s leader, said in an interview that he believes the technology could one day be used to keep people healthier as they age. Prof. Reik said that being able to create cell regeneration for the first time was a tremendous step forward. One of the first uses might be the development of drugs to rejuvenate skin in older individuals in areas of the body where they have been damaged or burned, allowing them to heal faster.
