Madrid, Every human being no one can know how long he will live. But the researchers managed to develop a blood test that can predict how long someone will live.
This blood test kits to measure the length telemore someone. The longer the existing reference telemore from the age of the person believed to be long. Conversely, if telemore short, then the lifetime of the person is too short.
Telomere is a section of DNA located at the ends of chromosomes, it serves to protect chromosomes from damage and loss of cell function associated with aging. Someone who has a shorter telomeres are considered as indicators of aging faster.
“Knowing whether long telomeres that have normal or not for a certain chronological age will give us an indication of health status and the ‘age’ physiological before the disease appears,” said Maria Blasco, head of research telomeres from the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre in Madrid, as quoted from the Telegraph .
These new blood assay can help predict how long a person will live based on the speeds of aging that occur in the body of the person. This assay will be on sale in Britain at the end of the year.
Researchers have developed a test worth 435 pounds, equivalent to USD 6,150,900 (the exchange rate USD 14 140) who say can accurately measure one’s length of telomeres, telomeres are considered related to one’s survival.
Companies from Spain Life Length of this assay has been developed for commercially known as the test of death (death test). This company will produce for the whole of Europe including Britain and America.
The experts hope someone can learn when it is known he has the potential for short lived, for example by helping people to develop healthy lifestyles, improve diet and reduce stress.
“This test is very thorough, even we could detect very little difference to the length of telomeres, this technique is very simple and fast so that many samples can be analyzed at the same time,” says Blasco.
Although the researchers revealed that people with shorter telomeres would have a short life, but this test can not predict with certainty how many years or months of a person can live.
