DNA Discovery regarding Aging Immune Systems

“We have found the cellular mechanism responsible for the inability of blood-forming cells to maintain blood production over time in an old organism, and have identified molecular defects that could be restored for rejuvenation therapies,” said Emmanuelle Passegué, PhD, a professor of medicine and a member of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCSF.

Excerpt from article: http://www.ucsf.edu/news/2014/07/116431/key-aging-immune-system-discovered

It appears that UCSF is looking at developing a drug that regenerates old stem cells by relieving stress of DNA replication. As far as I know this is quite a novel approach - will be interesting to see where this leads.
