Low Oxygen in Cells might spur Cancer Growth

The compound is called MZ-5-156 and is a growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) antagonist. The study results were published in the online December 6th edition of the National Academy of Sciences.

John E. Morley, M.D., study co-investigator and director of the divisions of geriatric medicine and endocrinology at Saint Louis University School of Medicine said that older people taking growth hormone supplements to reverse aging may actually “be hazardous”.

The researchers studied a SAMP8 mouse model for aging and they discovered that the MZ-5-156 had showed a beneficial outcome for oxidative stress in the brain. This helped the mice have better cognition and the telomerase activity was improved. The mice also had an increased life span while at the same time decreasing the amount of tumors. The MZ-5-156 also has been found in other research to repress prostate, breast, brain and lung cancer in humans. In addition there has been research that have measured improvement on short-term memory and improved learning. In this study, the MZ-5-156 created an antioxidant action that reduced oxidative stress and reversed cognitive damage in the mice as they aged.
