New Cellular Aging Test Can Provide a Detailed Profile of an Individuals Cellular Health and Biological Age
SEATTLE - Oct. 24, 2018 - PRLog -- Silene Biotech announced today a new cell age testing service will be added to their current suite of biotechnology services.
Do you know how old your cells are, biologically speaking? The new service from Silene Biotech can now provide you with this information. That knowledge can help consumers find a whole new world of personalized and preventative healthcare options.
To appreciate fully what this new service truly brings to healthcare, it's important to first understand some basic biology. The cells that make up our bodies contain chromosomes which are made up of our DNA. In order to keep life functions alive, those cells must replicate through division, but cells also lose a bit of DNA in the process. To protect the important information in our DNA, every time the cell begins the replication process and divides, the telomere structures located at the end of our chromosomes protect the actual DNA by sacrificing a bit of their own structure instead.
However, this means that eventually, our telomeres will also reach a critical limit. After a certain number of replications, the telomeres cannot become any shorter without damaging the actual chromosomes. At this point, the cell may no longer be able to divide. Reaching this critical minimum length can also change the very function of the cell, a process known as "senescence."
Knowing your telomere length can give doctors and scientists an approximate idea of functional cell age. Consumers may then be able to affect the rate at which their cells are aging through adjustments to lifestyle, nutrition, exercise and even meditation.
Silene Biotech has incorporated cell age analysis into two levels of its StemFreeze services. In partnership with Dr. Myles Spar and the SoCal Men's Medical Group, consumers can benefit from a more detailed analysis of their personal genetic code. Any premium or concierge level StemFreeze customer has the opportunity to discuss their cell age and other test results with Dr. Spar through secure teleconferencing.
Dr. Alex Jiao, CEO of Silene Biotech, says, "Aging is inevitable. Our stem cells age with us and become less effective over time. Preserving your cells today is the only way of accessing your younger, healthier stem cells in the future. But just because you're aging doesn't mean you can't do so gracefully. By analyzing their cell age, we believe our customers can also make informed decisions about their future health today. Combining preservation and cell age analysis is one of the best ways to prepare yourself for the future."
As healthcare technology and science continue to evolve at a rapid pace, Silene Biotech consumers will find themselves on the cutting edge of biotechnology breakthroughs providing new options for personalized healthcare. When it comes to personalized healthcare, cell age testing is no longer science fiction -- it's just science.
Silene Biotech was founded with a passion for health and a mission to provide people with access to a better quality of life. We're committed to advancing the field of medicine through credible science with a focus on our customers. We've streamlined complicated medical processes to offer you the most convenient, affordable, and credible stem cell preservation service.
