A Jerusalem lab says it has “reverse aged” human eggs from women at the end of their child-bearing years to make them more like eggs from a 20-year-old. In new peer-reviewed research, scientists from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem said they identified a previously unknown aging mechanism and can reverse it by administering anti-viral drugs to the egg in a test tube.

Quote: “Many women are trying to get pregnant aged 40 or over, and we think this could actually increase their level of fertility,” Hebrew University molecular biologist Dr. Michael Klutstein, who led the research, told The Times of Israel. “Within 10 years, we hope to use anti-viral drugs to increase fertility among older women.”
