An experiment on older mice will help improve people's quality of life

Scientists from Russia and Sweden are working under a grant from the Russian National Research Foundation to investigate the causes of metabolic disorders that lead to type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2).

Such an experiment will be conducted for the first time in rodents whose age corresponds to 50-80 years of human life. The relationship between metabolic syndrome and sarcopenia will also be studied. The data obtained will help develop new approaches to treating these ailments and improve the quality of life for people of pre-retirement and retirement age.
