I’ve read in a few places that Everolimus is more effective at extending mouse lifespan than Rapamycin by around three times. This is thought to be because it’s more of a “pan-mTOR inhibitor”; that is to say it blocks all the actions of both mTORc1 and mTORc2, where as pulsing Rapamycin only partially inhibits mTORc1 (in doses such as once a week for six weeks with a four week break).
What opinions and evidence do people have about this?
Is it possible to get Everolimus commercially? Has anyone experimented with it and what doses are considered safe in humans?
I don’t believe that there have been any mouse/ rodent everolimus lifespan tests - so if you’ve seen any, please post them. Generally I think people / researchers expect there to be no difference in terms of lifespan effect of everolimus vs. rapamycin / sirolimus.
The research I’ve seen seems to suggest that increasing mTORC2 (not inhibiting it) increases lifespan - you can search the forums for past discussions on this topic. Blocking mTORC2 generally is suspected to be the cause of many of the negative side effects of rapamycin when used on a daily basis, at higher dosing… so I’m not sure why pan-mTOR inhibitors are good for longevity - please post links or research.
