Default DNA repair discovery could lead to drugs to reverse ageing, fight cancer and help spa

DNA repair discovery could lead to drugs to reverse ageing, fight cancer and help space travel - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
Quote:
A drug to reverse ageing and treat cancer may be a step closer after a team of scientists identified a critical step in how cells repair damaged DNA.
Quote:
Their discovery could even help survivors of childhood cancers and help NASA get astronauts to Mars.

"For most of the 20th century we knew that our [cells' ability to repair DNA gets worse over time] and we get old and it's the main reason we get cancer," Harvard and UNSW professor David Sinclair said.

"So what we've discovered is the reason why."

Published in the journal Science, the international team identified how a vitamin called NAD+ was regulating the interactions that control DNA repair.

easy explanation:


my husband told me to dig out those forms the VA sent him about volunteering for a study.
