Nature Medicine has published a News and Views article written by A. J. Filiano & J. Kipnis about the recent study of Dr. Saul A. Villeda (UCSF) and Prof. Tony Wyss-Coray (Stanford University) to which we also contributed.

In their article entiteled "Breaking bad blood: β2-microglobulin as a pro-aging factor in blood" they state that, "...the burden imposed by age-related diseases is astronomical. Slowing—or even reversing—deleterious age-related processes might delay or prevent the onset of age-related diseases. Identification of molecules, such as B2M, that accelerate the development of these deficits is a promising first step. The fountain of youth may well be flowing in our blood."
