Interesting coming into this forum and seeing this post in 2019. Just yesterday I picked up a copy of the New Scientist magazine who's cover is about 'A cure for ageing?'.
It seems that a bona fide longevity drug is about to come on the market this year, by who and what they wouldn't (couldn't?) say. However, they warned is was like Resveratrol in that there was no hard science to prove its efficacy as a longevity solution.
In addition the article goes on to discuss other compounds that are attempting to negotiate the US's FDA approval process, this being expected to get to final human trials in 5 years. So, 2017? More like 2019 to 2024 at the least.
1 in 10,000 success rate for new compounds so don't hold our collective breath.
