Medical treatment in the Three Galaxies:
- Anti-Aging Treatments:
- These are sometimes called Anti-Gathics and Anti-Gerome treatments.
What they do is reduce the aging of the body. Listed are the technological
methods, magical methods can completely stop aging. Anti-Aging treatment
are more effective when used from the patients birth, but when used since
birth they increase the time the body takes to physical mature. This does
not effect mental aging so a person will mature mentally normally except
that hormonal changes will happen slightly later. The later effects of
aging from old age are slowed down as well.
These treatments are legal on most planets in the Consortium of Civilized Worlds, Splugorth Planets, United Worlds Warlock, Free Worlds League, Phase World, and the Paradise Federation. The Kreeghor have made the treatment illegal because they do not want subservient races to be long lived. Some high population planets in some of the major governments have made it illegal to prevent overpopulation. A few governments have also made the treatment illegal for religious reasons. In all cases, the treatments can normally be found on the black market as well but at 10 to 100 times market cost.
The listed rates are for humans. For all other races, the age at which the patient aging rate changes is the equivalent age for that race. Every race requires a different formula except humans and ogres can use the same formula.
