The Biogen project is based on the search for an effective method to extend human life. Biogen will mainly investigate the most effective method to lengthen or avoid the reduction of telomere size without damaging other cells or the health and human integrity. Telomeres are structures that protect human genetic material. They are essential for the DNA to be intact. Telomerase is the antidote that nature has to realarge telomeres. It is not present in the adult organism, but is activated in the embryonic development and resets the telomeres of the new individual. If Biogen believe that it is possible, it was possible to activate telomerase in mice in a similar way to that which would be done in humans, if it had been done in humans it is estimated that it could live up to 120 years and in a healthier way.
