An idealistic young medical doctor, Giancarlo Avellino, inspired by a radical colleague, Sigismondo Malatesta decides that the biological hands of time can be scientifically reversed in the elderly, making them young again! Convinced that a combinationof pharmaceutical compounds and nutraceutical dietary supplements may be one of the keys to the fountain of youth, he boldly decides to prove it, clinically treating five aging physicians and a sixth surprise volunteer.

The results of the treatment at first seem promising, but then a mysterious death occurs, jeopardizing the program. The police and the FDA become involved, paving the way for the U.S. Congressto enter challenging the will of the young doctor to continue his couragous endeavor.

Primarily conversational, the bulk of the story is concerned with addressing how people deal with this bold effort, describing their thoughts and their individual reactions to the turning back of their hands of time.

About the author (2006)

Stephen L. DeFelice, M.D., the founder and Chairman of FIM, the Foundation for Innovation in Medicine, has had a very long, distinguished and varied career in medical research and discovery. He was part of the team that brought lithium to the U.S., and it was thanks to his perseverance and research efforts that the life-saving substance, carnitine, first became available.

It was back in the late 60’s that Dr. DeFelice first deemed aging to be a disease, and thusly treatable not only in terms of slowing it down, but actually reversing it—a radical thought until very recently.

Dr. DeFelice is currently considering a clinical study to attempt to reverse some common mental and physical manifestations of the aging process through the use of a rational mixture of pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals.
