anti-aging formula slated to begin human trials

All the talk about animal testing reminded me of this story that I read yesterday. Apparently an enzyme has been used to reverse muscular decay in mice. The story states that it is the equivalent of giving an 80 year old the fitness of a 20 year old. How this would translate into other symptoms of aging isn’t discussed however, if human trials are successful, it would be a huge increase in the standard of living for the elderly.
