CXCL9 Protein In Blood Determines "How Far Along A Person Is In Their Inexorable March To The Grave."
Red Wine Molecule May Produce Biologically Young Centenarians
Researchers at Stanford University and the Buck Institute announce the remarkable discovery of a biological clock in human blood that can determine your "inflammatory age" (iAge) which equates with longevity. iAge can now be used to track risk to develop chronic age-related frailty. Anticipate blood test kits to be available soon.
The team of investigators identified CXCL9, an inflammatory protein that biologists call chemokines, as the strongest contributor to iAge. CXCL9 is called into action when white blood cells are required to respond to infection.
