Abstract

Recent experimental studies demonstrate that medications targeting aging (antioxidants, calorie restriction mimetics, autophagy inductors, etc.) can substantially promote health and extend lifespan. Pharmacologically targeting aging appears to be more effective in preventing age-related pathology compared with treatments targeted to particular pathologies. The development of new antiaging drugs represents a great opportunity for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries.
