Background: Present knowledge on the effects of growth hormone (GH) on aging and lifespan are controversial. Clinical data indicate that normal or high levels of GH may accelerate aging and increase the risk of cardio-vascular diseases. Very small embryonic-like stem cells (VSELs) are a population of developmentally early stem cells residing in adult tissues, which could have the potential role in aging and organ rejuvenation.Objective: The aim of the st...
