HONG KONG, May 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Regent Pacific Group Limited ("Regent Pacific" or the "Company" and together with its subsidiaries, the "Group"; stock code: 0575.HK)’s wholly owned Deep Longevity, Inc, a leading provider of deep biomarkers of aging and longevity is pleased to announce a collaboration with LifeHub and LifeClinic to deploy an extensive range of AI-powered aging clocks to explore the effectiveness of longevity interventions including lifestyle choices and drug regimens.
Based in Hong Kong, LifeHub and LifeClinic are leading Functional Medicine-based Medical Wellness and Medical Clinic facilities in the region. They take a science-based approach to Health Optimisation and Longevity by addressing their clients’ physiological imbalances that can stem from nutritional deficiencies, hormonal issues, or build up of toxic environmental pollutants.
As part of the partnership, LifeHub and LifeClinic medical professionals are being engaged in advanced research with Deep Longevity and trained in deep aging clocks to provide their clients with biological age reports to customize their clients’ wellness journeys.
Deep Longevity aging clocks are supported by a number of academic publications that are summarized in a recent review titled "BioHorology and biomarkers of aging: Current state-of-the-art, challenges, and opportunities".
Biological Aging clocks are a new holistic biomarker of health and wellbeing that reflect the biological age of the person, and not their passport age. These markers are usually much more predictive of mortality and can be used for early disease diagnosis, prevention, clinical trial management and in insurance applications. Deep Longevity is the original inventor of deep aging clocks – biomarkers of aging using deep learning and has granted patents on the technology.
"I am delighted that we will be able to use Deep Longevity’s advanced aging clocks to track improvements to Health and Longevity through LifeHub and LifeClinic’s unique range of products and treatment programs", said Dr Jonathan Seah, Chairman of LifeHub and LifeClinic.
"The traditional approach to preventative medicine is focused on preventing disease by diagnosing the symptoms early or reducing the risks of disease. AI-guided longevity medicine goes much further than that by focusing on tracking the person’s rates of aging at many levels, on the identification of longevity bottlenecks, and on utilizing the latest advances in science and technology to slow down or potentially even reverse biological and psychological aging. We are very happy to have both LifeHub and LifeClinic join the rapidly growing network of our research and clinical partners focused on providing customers with extra years of productive and happy life", said Dr Alex Zhavoronkov, Chief Longevity Officer of Deep Longevity Inc. He is especially excited by the "Starbucks model" that LifeHub is applying to both longevity procedures and clinic design. "You can walk in, get tested before and during treatment programs like nutrient IV drips, diet and supplement regimens, to check progress in a scientific way."
