>LIFE EXTENSION UPDATE EXCLUSIVE: Crosslink-breaking drug ALT-711
>to be tested for hypertension
>ALT-711 is one of a new class of compounds called advanced
>glycosylation endproduct crosslink breakers. These drugs have the
>ability to break crosslinks caused by glycosylation, which is the
>binding of sugar to protein molecules. The resultant crosslinkage
>destroys the elasticity of tissue over time, leading to a loss of
>function. Glycosylation-induced damage occurs more frequently with
>age and with diabetes. Crosslinkage in the vacular system creates
>hardening of the arteries, or arteriosclerosis. When blood vessels
>cannot expand, blood pressure becomes elevated.
