Myostatin Muscle Boosting and Other Frailty Reduction Methods Can More than Double Cancer Survival and Reduce Mortality Risk in the Aged by 5 Times

Researchers have created a molecule that blocks the activity of the muscle-limiting protein myostatin in mice. It can fully reverse the devastating muscle loss that often accompanies advanced cancer — and thereby increase the lifespan of animals with the disease. Instead of myostatin binding to its normal receptor and triggering muscle wastage, it is ‘mopped …
