Group of Russian biohackers perform the first human plasma dilution

Results aren't published in any journal but might be the first step towards more human studies


Key points from article :

Two Russian biohackers performed a plasma dilution experiment on themselves.

Based on previous mouse studies by Drs. Irina and Michael Conboy.

'Simple plasma dilution can recapitulate most of the benefits of parabiosis' - Alexander Fedintsev, advisor.

The two participants were 50-60 years old.

A huge panel of blood biomarkers were tested twice – before and after the intervention.

This was followed by plasma donation & albumin injection.

"Experiments on mice translate badly to people. This is why we do biohacking as subjects"- Yuri Khait, participant.

Ox-LDL levels dropped, LDL levels normalised & liver markers improved.

Myelocyte/lymphocyte ratio improved, insulin levels & inflammation markers also declined.

Unexpected - cholesterol went up & so did Naive T cells.

Data is published as a Google spreadsheet on their website.
