MULTIPLE TREATMENTS TO SLOW AGE-RELATED MUSCLE WASTING

Everyone wants to stay fit and healthy as they grow old. But as we age, our body degrades, our muscles shrink and strength declines. Some older people suffer from excessive muscle loss, a condition known as sarcopenia. Researchers from the Biozentrum of the University of Basel show that a combination therapy could delay the onset of sarcopenia. This study has recently been published in “Nature Communications”.
