While it may sound like a statement from Dracula himself, it's actually Stanford professor Tony Wyss-Coray, who's leading a trial in which blood donated by people under 30 will be injected into older Alzheimer's patients as an experimental treatment for the disease.
According to New Scientist:
"The scientists behind the experiment have evidence on their side. Work in animals has shown that a transfusion of young mouse blood can improve cognition and the health of several organs in older mice. It could even make those animals look younger. The ramifications for the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries could be huge if the same thing happens in people."
The trial starts in early October in California.
