ISRAEL - Make Elderly Skin Young Again

Arno Froese

Have scientists at Haifa’s Rambam Health Care Campus and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and colleagues abroad—after two decades of research—discovered the fountain of youth? 

Conducted by Dr. Aviad Keren, Dr. Yaniv Keren, Prof. Yehuda Ullman, Prof. Amos Gilhar of the Haifa institutions, Dr. Marta Bertolini of the Monasterium Laboratory in Germany and Dr. Ralf Paus of the University of Manchester, the study has just been published in the prestigious journal Science Advances published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science under the title “Human organ rejuvenation by VEGF-A: Lessons from the skin.”  

Using an old skin graft on young mice, they proved that it is possible to make skin and other organs young again via a change in molecular structure through all the layers of the skin.

To achieve this, aging-research models are critically needed in which not only the key drivers of human organ aging can be identified but also the most promising strategies to prevent getting old and to make humans young again through drugs that remove old cells can be tested on lab animals before using on patients, they continued.

Arno's Commentary

There is much to be said about medical science, particularly in the land of Israel. There is no doubt that life expectancy has increased; in the developed world, it has almost doubled. For the United States in 1816, it was 39.4 years; today, according to www.cia.gov, life expectancy stands at 80.6 years.

So, the question, why do old people want to look younger? The real and underlying reason is the fear of the unknown, the fear of death.

Here Psalm 90:12 proclaims: “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” Wisdom given to the believer causes him to realize his temporary presence on earth. The apostle Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 5:4: “For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life,” and adds the words, “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord” (verse 8).
