One Step Closer To Helping Your Dogs Live Longer

While I think we probably already have a drug to slow aging in drugs: rapamycin. (see How Do I Get Rapamycin for My Dog? )

There is a new drug discussed in the story below (a drug to lower IGF-1 levels in large dogs to improve their healthspan and lifespan - is actually going through the first FDA approval process for a drug to slow aging (in this case, for dogs).

When Celine Halioua was named to the 2022 Forbes 30 Under 30 list, she told us that “There has never been a drug approved for aging for any species, dog or human. My core goal in life is to get the first drug approved.”

She’s now one step closer to her goal. On Friday, her company, Loyal announced that it has received a protocol concurrence from the FDA for a clinical trial of one of the longevity drugs that it has developed for dogs. If the clinical trial hits its desired endpoints, the drug could go to market as soon as 2025.

“We’re building this path to approving an aging drug for dogs,” Halioua, 28, says. “So that once somebody figures it out once, then it applies to others.”
