Gene therapies for major aging-related disease and conditions

BioViva offers potential single treatment cures and vaccines for sarcopenia, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer's Disease and cancer and will begin human clinical trials in 2018.

Gene therapy

Aging is a complex process that inevitably leads to disease and dysfunction, and this is why we are targeting our therapies at aging... to head disease off at the pass. These are some of our immediate targets to develop gene therapies for, and this will develop as we develop new ways to treat illness and learn more about aging:

* Lengthen Telomeres
* Reverse Atherosclerosis
* Clear Misfolded Proteins
* Clear Senescent Cells
* Re-strengthen Muscles
* Re-boot the immune System
* Improve Cell Signaling
* Treat Monogenic Disease
