Welcome to Rapamycin News, The Anti-Aging Drug User Group

This website is for people interested in living longer, and healthier lives using the latest longevity medicine and geroscience information. Here you will find the real world, personal experiences of people who are testing rapamycin (sirolimus) and other medications that lab and clinical research is suggesting could have a major positive impact on our lives.

Rapamycin is an FDA-approved drug that has been shown to increase lifespan and healthspan (typically 15% to 30%) in every organism tested, from yeast, to worms, to mice. It is widely considered by geoscientists to be the “gold standard” for health and longevity extending drugs.

Not only does rapamycin treatment increase life span but it also delays, or even reverses, nearly every age-related disease or decline in function in which it has been tested in mice, rats, and companion dogs, including cancers, cardiac dysfunction, kidney disease, obesity, cognitive decline, periodontal disease, macular degeneration, muscle loss, stem cell function, and immune senescence.

Join in the discussions and ask questions if you would like to learn more about the benefits, risks and science of these drugs.

We are not medical professionals here, and no medical advice is given here. We are just people sharing our experiences and trying to move the science forward faster. We are open to working with geroscience researchers to help push the clinical science forward, and are also patient advocates hoping to push the FDA forward towards a more “health maintenance” perspective vs. its historical disease focus.

Given the low cost of rapamycin, and significant benefits demonstrated in the lab, we think it has the chance to significantly and positively impact public health.

If you’re new here - the best place to start is our list of Rapamycin frequently asked questions (FAQ).

I think this will be an excellent resource for those trying to put all of the pieces of the puzzle together. I will refer my physician to this site and know he will be easily be able to access data and have all of his questions answered. Thank-you!

Thankyou - that is definitely part of the goal with the site.

I found it to be a real pain to try to provide this type of information to doctors, friends, and family because there was no good central place to direct people and let them learn about rapamycin. Everything was spread out between research journals, discussion forums, and other random places, and its always changing.

Hopefully this helps accelerate the adoption and research on rapamycin. Please invite friends, family members and doctors to the site and participate and post new information or observations as you learn them.

Please share links to this site on your twitter feed, and in longevity / anti-aging / geroscience discussion forums and videos.
