Dawn of a new indication: How to study drugs for aging (Pharmaceutical Technology)

As “anti-aging” drugs gain traction, researchers explore new ways to view aging for regulatory approvals.

For a long time, aging biology and research have been enigmatic areas that biotechs hoped to capitalise on due to their market potential. Whether one refers to such research as “longevity”, “anti-aging” or “extending healthspan”, it is clear this area has evolved massively over the last few years with more scientists now eager to get drugs in this area from bench to bedside. However, struggles to prove to regulators the validity of or need for drugs in this realm still serve as a major barrier to success.
