Anti-Aging Vaccine Failure?

This was almost a year ago. I wonder how it turned out:

Scientists will trial a new longevity drug in the UK next year that they say could increase the life expectancy of some people to up to 120 years of age.

Researchers are developing a treatment that could significantly increase a person’s healthy lifespan and, in turn, their longevity, by boosting their immune systems. This has been made possible after they found a way to slow down – and potentially even prevent – the natural ageing of T cells, a key part of our immune defences.

Professor Lanna has set up a London-based company called SentCell to develop the vaccine, which he says will be trialled in humans in 2023.

Asked roughly how long a person’s life could potentially be extended by this vaccine, if effective, he said “120 years”.

“[The trial] will happen in the UK next year and we expect the drug in the market as soon as possible. I cannot say more because it is confidential,” he said.

I can find lots of references in the 2018 to 2022 time frame, but nothing since then.

I asked Bing Chat for the results of the human trials and it responded with, “I’m sorry, but as of my last update in 2021, I don’t have the most recent information on the results of the human trials for the anti-aging treatment developed by Professor Alessio Lanna and his team at University College London.”

Their web site doesn’t have any information from 2023 either. I suspect things didn’t work out very well.

  1. Pharma is very good at collecting lots of data, data that happens disappears when things turn out badly, so they can claim that they “have no data indicating a negative outcome, so it must be some other cause why it didn’t see further development.”

    If they can’t disappear the data, they muddle it, like vaxxing the control group for the covid vaccine trial after only a couple of months, so they deliberately nuked their long-term data collection. But hey, only about two and a half percent of the vaxxed group died during the initial trial period (1,223 of the 42,000 people, and they tried to hide that for 75 years), so there is that, right?

  2. It may have been wildly successful, enough for significant investment and skimming of funds, followed by retirement to a Jamaican beach.

  3. 120? Before the flood they made it 800-900 years. They still couldn’t figure it out. Time isn’t the problem.
    It’s what you do with the time that ends up the problem.

  4. seems to be a bit soon to know if any life extension has occurred if they only started the trial this year. They might have preliminary data as to side effects but that alone is unlikely to draw any attention unless they are show stoppers. This could be a case of no news is good news.
