US trio Elizabeth Blackburn, Carol W Greider and Jack W Szostak won the Nobel Medicine Prize on Monday for discovering an enzyme which helps chromosomes in cells stay eternally young, the Nobel jury said.

They were honoured for the discovery of "how chromosomes are protected by telemores and the enzyme telomerase," the jury said.
