The effects of hypophysectomy and continuous food restriction begun at ages 70 and 400 days on collagen aging proteinuria incidence of pathology and longevity in the male rat


, : The effects of hypophysectomy and continuous food restriction begun at ages 70 and 400 days on collagen aging proteinuria incidence of pathology and longevity in the male rat. Mechanisms of Ageing & Development 12(2): 161-172

Hypophysectomy in young male Wistar rats aged 70 days, followed by cortisone acetate replacement therapy throughout life, retarded the rate of aging of tail tendon collagen fibers, inhibited the development of certain diseases of old age (renal disease, cardiac enlargement, hind limb paralysis, and various endocrine and non-endocrine tumors) and significantly prolonged the duration of life. Almost identical anti-aging effects were obtained by lowering the food intake of intact rats to that of hypophysectomized rats, from aged 70 days until death. Hypophysectomy in middle age, at 400 days, even with cortisone acetate replacement therapy, produced a sharp increase in the mortality rate; the surviving rats exhibited significantly reduced aging of collagen fibers and of the kidney as measured by protein excretion. Food restriction began at 400 days also inhibited renal aging, but had no demonstrable effect on collagen aging during the 1st 100 days. Procedures such as hypophysectomy and food restriction do not switch off an aging mechanism in youth but probably exert a continuing inhibitory influence on certain aging processes throughout life.
