It looks complicated and it certainly is. For Vladimir Skulachev it is almost a life's work. Two more years of testing and the doctor thinks he will have finally cracked the enigma of aging. Apparently it's all about how oxygen reacts in the body.
“99% of the time oxygen turns into harmless water, but there's that one percent that turns into a super-oxide that later turns into very poisonous elements,” Vladimir Skulachev, Professor of Bioenergetics, reveals.
“So the task was to find an anti-oxidant that stops that process.”
After success with eye drops in animals, the inventor tried the medicine on his own cataract. Six months later, his physician told him his cataract was gone. Thousands are queuing to take part in the clinical trials, which have just begun.
But it will be a few years before Dr Skulachev's discovery reaches the shelves of an average pharmacy. Some have already dubbed the drug a panacea.
And if it lives up to its promise, the treatment should have an effect on the diseases of aging and bring with it the prospect of a longer and better quality of life.
