Dutch scientists test anti-ageing molecule

But while scientists are still preparing to start human trials, people are already trying to buy the rejuvenating molecule online.

Scientists in the Netherlands are working on a drug that could reverse certain aspects of ageing.

A rejuvenating molecule tested in mice managed to extend their lifespan by 25 percent.

Human trials have not yet started, but replicas of the molecule are already being sold on the internet.
