TELEMORE LEGHT TESTING


What are telomeres and why are they important?


Telomeres are caps placed on the ends of our chromosomes. They manage stability during the process of cell division. They protect our DNA. In any organism, replication takes place - cell division. Information that is encoded in our DNA is copied. But as cells divide, our body gets older. Scientists have made a breakthrough discovery. At each cell division, the ends of our chromosomes - the telomeres - also get shorter .

Scientific evidence shows that critically short telomeres cause accelerated cellular aging and are related to the development of serious diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, infertility, neurodegenerative diseases, some types of cancer and infectious diseases.


TELOMERES ARE IN FACT THE BASIS BIOMARKERS THAT ALLOW US TO ACCURATELY ESTIMATE BIOLOGICAL AGE AND OVERALL HEALTH STATE OF THE ORGANISM.


 

By measuring the length of the telomeres, the real biological age of the organism can be assessed and it is possible, based on medical advice and guidance, to work on its reduction. Biological age may differ from the calendar one by as much as 15 - 20 years! We recommend combining the examination of telomere length with the ALCAT test - the examination for food intolerance, the examination of oxidative stress and other anti-aging scientific tests and methods that allow us an individual approach to the overall rejuvenation of the organism.

We recommend checking telomere length once a year to compare the results and thereby acquire a more individual possibility to apply the best possible therapy.


THE LENGHT OF OUR TELOMERES IS TO A GREAT EXTENT INFLUENCED BY LIFESTYLE AND EATING HABIT, AS WELL AS BY STRESS, HEREDITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS.


Why is the technology of Life Length unique?
 

The A2C Anti-Aging Clinic works exclusively with the company Life Length. This is the only company in the world able to accurately measure the percentage of critically-short telomeres individually cell by cell. Life Length makes use of the patented technologies - HT Q-FISH and Telomapping - to map and assess telomere length in the nuclei of living cells.
 
The development of the test took more than five years and the investment in the development and verification of the technology exceeded $ 20 million.
 

Telomere Analysis Technology
 

Telomere Analysis Technology - the measurement of telomere length was developed by Dr. Maria Blasco, director of the prestigious Spanish National Cancer Research Center. This unique test is used by scientists and doctors throughout the world for individual preventive examinations and also represents an important tool for the pharmaceutical industry, biotechnologies, cosmetics, nutraceutics and scientific research. We are proud that the Anti-Aging Clinic A2C is an exclusive partner with Life Length. The measurement of the length of telomeres requires a blood sample and filling out an anonymous questionnaire.
 

Our research team relies on the results of the world's leading scientists in the field of telomere research:
Dr. Maria Blasco, Dr. Jerry Shay, Univ. Of Texas, Dr. Sandy Chand, Yale, Dr. Kathleen Collins, Berkeley, Dr. William Andrews and Dr. Mark Rosenberg.
