The age-reversal work of a doctor haunted by the death of a young neighbor will be used by a Philadelphia-based company aiming to start human trials on brain-dead patients in Latin America, the Daily Mail reports.

Bioquark, the company of Dr. Sergei Paylian, works with biological extracts that incorporate material from regenerative species like frogs, the outlet reported.

It's part of a broader project called ReAnima — which is "exploring the potential of cutting edge biomedical technology for human neuro-regeneration and neuro-reanimation," the Daily Mail reported.

The hoped-for trials will test if brain-dead patients will be able to breathe on their own, and if their hearts will beat on their own, the outlet reported.

Reversing the effects of aging, disease and even death was always his "ultimate dream" – ever since the neighbor’s funeral that left a mark on him, the Daily Mail reported.

"Then I was scared, as a kid," he said. "This is when I started to collect all this information about aging, because everybody dies – mosquito, human beings. It looks like some program is working, and the program is different between human beings, dogs, cockroaches… I was fascinated with this power of aging...."

Paylian said he "stumbled" on utilizing other species to reprogram human cells, calling it "unusual and magic and interesting."

"We can do it with organs; if we can do it with organs, convert them in younger stages, we can actually rejuvenate human beings," he said.

CEO Ira Pastor stands by the unorthodox project that he, Dr Paylian and their team are pursuing.

"It is obviously something that’s never been done, yet I think we are on the right path," he told the Daily Mail.

"That's not to say everyone loves us; they don’t. If we can get you breathing independently and then your heart will be beating independently, you are alive. You are not awake, but you are in a coma now, and you are not in an irreversible coma – and that would be a major step."

Dr. Charles Cox of the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston told science site Statnews.com "it’s not the craziest thing I’ve ever heard."

"But I think the probability of that working is next to zero," he said, the Daily Mail reported.
