Key points from article :
New experimental evidence to support the epigenetic theory emerges.
Replaced 50% of plasma in 2-year-old mice with a saline solution containing 5% albumin.
Detected higher nerve growth factors in brain, faster muscle repair rates and less adiposity in liver.
Proteomes of those mice resembled proteomes of young mice more closely.
Proves that there are proteins in the blood that actively retard growth and healing.
Plans to measure biological age using methylation clock in future studies.
