Dr. Greg Fahy earlier this week provided an update on the November 2020 TRIIM-X follow-on to the September 2019 TRIIM curated in Reversal of aging and immunosenescent trends. Emphasis was on reproducibility:
23:45 Dr. Steve Horvath reanalyzed TRIIM for the plasma portion of Levine’s PhenoAge epigenetic clock. Results were congruent with four other epigenetic clocks showing a 2.5 year reduction of biological age.
39:20 TRIIM-X preliminary results started with C-Reactive protein.
43:05 No backsliding in epigenetic age deceleration between TRIIM and TRIIM-X!
55:07 Q & A session starts with how TRIIM-X controls for supplements. Answers for resveratrol and calorie restriction, emphasizing that CR doesn’t reverse aging.
1:10 TRIIM-X took photos of subjects’ hair at baseline!
Great update! The last 20 minutes emphasized a need for capital in aging research. TRIIM-X has another 1.5 years to go, and other aging research projects needing funding were mentioned.
Don’t know what happened to the unmentioned 3000 IU vitamin D and 50 mg zinc recommendations of TRIIM. So I asked. Dr. Fahy replied:
“They are still there! Just not mentioned!”
Thought briefly about enrolling in TRIIM-X, but there’s no way anyone but me gets to experiment with my body.
