A medical program proven to “enhance and optimize brain and body performance by reversing biological ageing” will be introduced early next year in Dubai.
According to the international news agency, Aviv Clinics Dubai — the first medical science clinic of its kind in the region and the second to be established in the world — will offer a “transformative medical program backed by more than a decade of research and clinical trials”.
According to the Government of Dubai Media Office, the establishment of the new facility in Jumeirah Lake Towers “reflects the UAE Vision 2021 National Agenda”. This includes the development of the world’s most advanced healthcare offerings, both curative and preventative.
“The launch of Aviv Clinics Dubai is also consistent with Dubai’s vision for the next 50 years, which seeks to make the city a center for cutting-edge innovations in diverse sectors, including the medical field. With a focused strategy to attract advanced medical facilities, talent, and technologies, Dubai is set to become a leading international healthcare hub,” the media office said.
The development of Aviv Clinic’s medical program was led by world-renowned physician Prof. Shai Efrati and his team at the medical research institute, Sagol School of Neuroscience, at Shamir Medical Centre in Israel.
The first human clinical study was completed to show a reversal in the science of aging. Leaders research on age-related cognitive and functional decline and novel applications of hyperbaric medicine to maximize human performance, Prof. Efrati and his team completed the study.
The trial was made using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) protocols to show a cellular-level reversal of the key markers of ageing.
Prof. Shai Efrati said, “Since telomere shortening is considered the ‘Holy Grail’ of the biology of ageing, many pharmacological and environmental interventions are being extensively explored in the hopes of enabling telomere elongation.
“The significant improvement of telomere length shown during and after our unique HBOT protocols provides the scientific community with a new foundation for understanding that ageing can, indeed, be targeted and reversed at the basic cellular biological level.”
