Extracellular Vesicle-Contained eNAMPT Delays Aging and Extends Lifespan in Mice: Cell Metabolism
So Peter Thiel's vampire blood transfusion startup, taking blood from young people, was based on mouse studies where transfusing young mice blood into old mice improved the old mice (and the reverse made the young mice worse), but the reasons weren't well understood. Now, they seem to have isolated eNAMPT as a potential reason. Now, how to make eNAMPT in volume, and human trials, are the next step/

3 Carbon Dioxide | Emergency and Continuous Exposure Guidance Levels for Selected Submarine Contaminants: Volume 1 | The National Academies Press
Hrm, pages 53-55 suggest actual issues only in the 25000 ppm range, not the 1400ppm suggested by the harvard study, derived from submarine crew studies, but some of the studies had not a lot of study participants, and US Navy standards and expectations for crew may be somewhat different (currently they try to keep average 3500ppm and try to keep below 8000ppm, but they are also in a long term exposure environment where the body may adapt)(previously 4,100 ppm average with a range of 300-11,300 ppm)...
