Mothers at 60 years old? The biotech company Celmatix claims that it can delay menopause by 15 years
Menopause is often related to fertility, but its influence on a woman’s body is much greater. Can it be delayed?
The menopause marks the moment when a woman can no longer have children, and usually occurs from 45 or 50 years. Although in reality the fertile age is usually lower, because many other factors influence fertility.
Due to ignorance, both stages of a woman’s life are related, but menopause goes far beyond fertility itself. The woman stops making the hormones estrogen and progesterone, and these hormonal changes can cause many problems in your body.
Menopause can cause mood swings, anxiety, depression, changes in metabolism, difficulty sleeping and concentrating, hot flashes, and other problems. What if we delay menopause 15 years?
The first consequence of this is that women could have children at an even more mature agealthough as we say fertility depends on many other factors.
Celmatix’s goal is different. What you are looking for with this delay is improve women’s healthespecially those who suffer early menopause for different reasons, including chemotherapy sessions, after suffering from cancer.
By delaying this female condition for about 15 years, the problems it produces will also be reduced.
And how can you get something that hasn’t changed in Nature for millennia?
The drug being developed by Celmatix works mimicking antimullerian hormone, which is key in the regulation of the ovary and the storage of eggs. With this drug, the functions associated with menstruation would be regulated, allowing the ovaries to extend their function for a longer time.
Celmatix plans to begin clinical trials in 2023, with women undergoing chemotherapy, one of the leading causes of early menopause.
An investigation that can represent an important advance in the treatment of hormonal problems suffered by women, if positive results are really achieved.
