A drug called Rapamycin is injected into humans to help lessen the rejection of a new organ. However, U.S. scientists found that it significantly extends the lifespan of invertebrates, and now mammals (mice). They are excited because further research may produce a way to delay the onset of cancer and other aging disease and, thus, produce longer lives in humans.

Can we cure diseases? We've leaped forward!

Lead by scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, a team of researchers has successfully shown that, in theory, human diseases can be cured using gene therapy and stem cells. There’s much more work to accomplish, but this research is highly important for eventually curing cancers and other such diseases.
