TWEAKing Technology / Science in Secret Agent Someone | World Anvil

TWEAKing

A new medical cure, treatment or breakthrough.
-Dimi & Janet
  TWEAKing (Telomeric Wellness Extension & Assisted Karyokinesis) is an experimental process performed on HTPMDs to help slow aging and prevent natural cell deterioration in canine units.    

DISCOVERY

W.I.L.L.O.W.I.S.P.'s Scientific Division is always in search of breakthroughs that can aid the agency and improve processes for maximum success.   When studying breeds that would work best alongside agents, the lifespan of each dog was also discussed. In the long run, Pyrennean Mountain Dogs were utilized, but the species' numbered years still posed a potential problem. Although their hefty 10-12 year lifespan was one of the lengthiest among four-legged companions, the scientists thought hard to concoct a treatment that could stunt the aging process and keep operative dogs on the force for even longer amounts of time.
     

ACCESS/AVAILABLITY

The classified formulas for TWEAKing HTPMDs were created by W.I.L.L.O.W.I.S.P.'s scientific team and are heavily protected within the agency's private database. Though this development possesses the potential to become an astonishing accomplishment for all humanity, the organization has chosen not to share their progress with anyone as a precaution to prevent such technologies from falling into the wrong hands or being utilized for maleficent practices.  

COMPLEXITY

Studyding the cells in canines, the scientists discovered a process that could extend the telomeres that naturally diminished over time through Karyokinesis. In natural occurence, the telomeres shorten each time this is done. TWEAKing, however, ebbs the deterioration. Utilizing DNA from HTPMD puppies, the scientists have concocted a serum that can be intravenously injected into dogs once a year.   Trends show that the treatment seems to work. In addition to extending the life of the telomeres, the formula also improves brain health and helps the canines maintain youth, strength, and stamina.   Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, a set of Pyrenean Mountain Dog triplets, were the first HTPMD puppies to undergo the most current form of treatment. At over thirteen years old, all three of them are still on the force today carrying out missions as if they were still young dogs.
Commander McCox Gives Newbies the Rundown:   Okay. Don't touch anything. You definitely don't want to mess anything up. These right here are the vials that conain little fountains of youth for our furry friends. This special stuff keeps those HTPMDs happy, healthy, and sharp so that they can stay alert even in old age. We've got some grandpa dogs still working out in the field. Pretty neat, huh?   Oh... What's that look?   Ah... I know what you're thinking... YOU want to try to TWEAK yourself, don't you? BAD IDEA. As appealing as that sounds, I wouldn't want to take a chance on it. That stuff is made from puppy DNA, genetic engineering, and all types of twisted mad scientist scifi crap. You wouldn't want to end up turning into some mutant werewolf or something, would you? Don't get any ideas or they'll really send you off to get Erased.

Interesting idea :D Are the scientists working on translation that drug to something useable by humans? With something so impressive, a lot of people would pay a fortune to fund that research. I think when you say that the technology could fell into bad hands, some examples would help to illustrate what would be so bad about that because this seems like a really positive technology :D

Yeah! they are behind the scenes trying to develop something for humans, but if "villains" get ahold of it, they could extend their lives and make themselves less prone to injuries and quicker to heal etc. also, they may exploit it and sell it on the black market. they may also steal the ingredients used to make it and torture humans by trying the same process that they do with the dogs having no respect for life or no concern for them. they may train rabid animals or bugs and create "monsters" that are too invincible to be destroyed or something lol.   sorry for the long answer. XD

Ah! I wasn't sure what was possible in your world :D Thanks for the answer!
