Abstract: The quest for an immortality elixir has been around for centuries. Is anti-ageing, regenerative medical intervention, still in the realm of science fiction? We’re not talking of cosmetic surgery here, obviously. Some scientists believe that human immortality is possible in the future. If all our tissues have stem cells for replacement of worn out ones, why do we age and die? Even if immortality is not ultimately possible, are there any recent advances in understanding ageing and deteriorating function at cellular level? Extending useful, healthy life without added strains on health systems, would be a significant medical advance.
