Jango Bio is working on a stem cell treatment that could hold the key to halting, and even reversing, the effects of aging.
The natural process of hormone dysregulation happens to most organisms as they approach and pass reproductive maturity, with degrading of tissues in the body that regulate hormones.
This Madison-based startup’s unique method of reversing this process involves regrowing the gonadal tissues in the body that produce and regulate an array of hormones. These tissues can take the form of testes or ovaries, reproductive organs that also affect testosterone and estradiol, a form of estrogen.
But these two commonly known hormones are only part of a much bigger picture.
“There’s over 50 hormones that we’re not doing anything about,” said Jango Bio COO William Kohl. “That’s like having a semi truck with 18 wheels, and you’re only pumping up one tire if they’re all going flat. It helps a bit, but it’s not really a good solution.” Read the full story here.
