ITP1: Interventions Testing Program: Effects of various treatments on lifespan and related phenotypes in genetically heterogeneous mice (UM-HET3) (2017)

Miller RA, Strong JR, Harrison DE

     
The Interventions Testing Program (ITP, National Institute on Aging) is a multi-institutional study investigating treatments with the potential to extend lifespan and delay disease and dysfunction in heterogeneous populations of UM-HET3 mice. Such treatments include pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, foods, diets, dietary supplements, plant extracts, hormones, peptides, amino acids, chelators, redox agents, and other agents or mixtures of agents. The three ITP test sites (with abbreviations as used in these data) are:
  • The Jackson Laboratory (TJL)
  • University of Michigan at Ann Arbor (UM)
  • University of Texas Health Science Center (UT)
