San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/04/2014 -- Dr. Harvey Bartnof, the physician specializing in age management medicine and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy for men and women, is pleased to announce that he will be giving a lecture on his groundbreaking new research on the role of TA-65 in preventing the degeneration of telomere caps, resulting in improved methods of treating degenerative diseases and aging in general. Dr. Bartnof’s lecture will take place at the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine in San Francisco on Saturday, March 15, 2014.
Dr. Bartnof, who heads the California Longevity and Vitality Medical Institute in San Francisco, California, has dedicated his career to discovering ways to help people safely and effectively maintain their youth and even reverse the aging process. Dr. Bartnof’s most recent research focuses on a very specific structure in the human anatomy known as the telomere cap. Telomere caps are structures found at the end of strands of DNA, and they are vital to healthy cell division and the prevention of many age-related illnesses, including cancer.
Dr. Bartnof’s research coincides with that of Nobel Prize-winning scientists Professor Elizabeth Blackburn, PhD, Carol W. Greider, PhD, and Jack Szostak, PhD, who were the first to discover the important role that telomere caps play in the aging process. Dr. Bartnof’s lecture will focus on a new oral supplement known as TA-65, which increases telomerase, a natural enzyme that helps increase the length of the telomeres that protect the ends of chromosomes in cells. The human body is unable to function optimally with shortened telomeres, as this condition may lead to cancer, vascular disease, heart disease, excess weight, “mitochondria” malfunction, immune decline and many others.
“Ongoing research over the past 35 years regarding telomeres and telomerase in human diseases and aging is fascinating. And it is very relevant to humans' ongoing quest to maintain quality-of-life and to delay and prevent diseases of aging,” says Harvey S. Bartnof, M.D. “Abnormalities in telomere functioning represent a major co-factor for the development of a range of human genetic, degenerative, aging diseases and cancer.”
Dr. Bartnof also specializes in hormone replacement therapy to help people overcome the challenges of aging. Due to Dr. Bartnof’s work with bio-identical hormones San Francisco residents now have the option to undergo safe and effective hormone therapy that will help treat degenerative diseases and reverse the aging process. Anyone who is interested in learning more about the hormone replacement therapy San Francisco residents have relied on for years to help them retain their health and vitality is invited to visit the California Longevity and Vitality Medical Institute’s website.
