“Within four weeks or six weeks, these mice developed skin wrinkles, and lost hair," - Keshav Singh, CSO at Yuva Biosciences.

"A direct link between mitochondrial dysfunction and hair loss and skin aging," - Singh.

“We’re actually starting human trials in the next few weeks,” - Greg Schmergel, Chairman at Yuva Biosciences.

"Tracking the effect on skin wrinkles, and hair growth, both qualitatively and quantitatively," - Schmergel.

Results are expected before the end of the year, with commercialization of the product to follow.
