Significance of the study:

It has been shown earlier that antagonizing angiotensin II type I receptor (AT1R) expression may prolong mammalian life span. Further, it has been shown that disruption of AT1R (AGTR1) gene results in marked prolongation of mammalian lifespan. 


From research findings to therapeutic opportunity: 

This study suggests, for the first time, that Artesunate, by increasing the expression of its target genes,  it may decrease the expression of AT1R.

Figure1. Mechanistic insights into how Artesunate functions as a longevity- promoter. Artesunate, by increasing the expression of its downstream target genes, down regulates A1TR expression and promotes longevity.

And, thereby, it may: (1) decrease blood pressure; (2) decrease blood sugar levels; (3) inhibit pulmonary fibrosis; (4) enhance bacterial immunity; (5) inhibit myocardial infarction; (6) decelerate ageing process; and (4) extend the lifespan of an individual. Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Artesunate or its analogues or Berberine in combination with other anti-ageing/longevity promoting compounds” may be used to extend the lifespan of an individual (Figures 1-2).
