"Researchers have developed an extensive database encompassing all drugs and compounds that aim to extend lifespan. Called DrugAge, the database is freely available and was created using insight generated from the analysis of 418 compounds and 27 model organisms from yeast to mice. Interestingly, the scientists, from the Biogerontology Research Foundation (BGRF) and University of Liverpool have found that drugs have not yet targeted the majority of cellular chemical cascades that relate to aging. Instead, most work on the manipulation of aging through pharmacology has remained focused on a small group of chemical cascades or pathways that have been known to relate to aging in one way or another. Therefore, the database could open up new avenues for the treatment of aging."
