Slowing down the dreaded aging process is something that everybody’s interested in, and now scientists have uncovered a new pathway to doing so. The team identified a feedback loop in the brain, and found that ramping up its activity helped mice live longer and healthier.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: Aging, anti-aging, Washington University in St Louis, Molecules, Fat cells, Bra
Researchers have used a machine-learning model to analyze blood proteins to estimate the biological, as opposed to the chronological, age of bodily organs. It’s a way of predicting an apparently healthy person’s risk of developing conditions like heart failure, Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes that may lead to earlier treatment.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Aging, Disease, Biom
If you’ve ever misjudged the potency of a dollop of wasabi on your sushi, you’ll be well versed in its ability to clear sinuses and, for a moment, have you feeling like you can see through space and time.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Tohoku University, Brain, Memory, Neuroscience, Dementia, Age-Related
Researchers have provided experimental proof of a pathway that controls aging, finding that quieting some mobile DNA sequences in roundworms led to a longer life. Not only does the discovery provide a greater understanding of how we age, but it also opens the door to potential applications in biology and medicine.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: Aging, anti-aging, Genetics
Sarcopenia affects up to 16% of the world’s aging population and is one of the leading factors in the loss of independence. Marked by a loss of both muscle mass and function or strength, it’s behind many age-related falls, poor mobility and functional decline. What’s more, to date there’s no ‘cure’ or treatments to halt its progression, let alone reverse it, and most intervention is based on slow
While aging remains an unavoidable part of life, scientists are getting ever closer to developing therapies that could significantly improve the experience. Following on from earlier studies that saw hydrogen sulfide donor molecule AP39 revive aging cell health, researchers at the University of Exeter have had more promising results out of their animal trials.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, Sc
Most of us begrudgingly accept aging as a part of life – but maybe we don’t have to. A new study led by scientists at Harvard Medical School has identified chemical cocktails that can restore cells to a more youthful state, paving the way for aging-reversal treatments that are more accessible than gene therapy.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: Aging, anti-aging, Epigenetics, Chemica
A new study has looked at the molecular mechanisms underlying hair growth and found that aging or senescent cells may be key to promoting hair growth in humans. Their findings potentially open the door to developing new hair loss treatments that harness the innate abilities of these often-maligned cells.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Hair, Baldness, Molecules, Aging, UC Irvine
Scientists at UC San Diego have developed a way to potentially slow down the cellular aging process, using an oscillating genetic 'clock.' In tests, yeast cells were found to live significantly longer than those without.Continue ReadingCategory: Health & Wellbeing, LifestyleTags: Aging, anti-aging, Cells, Cellular, Cellular machinery, UC San Diego, DNA, Yeast
UNStudio recently completed an extensive renovation of a former bank headquarters in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The firm has vastly improved the aging building's energy efficiency while rearranging its interior layout to be suitable for use as a modern office.Continue ReadingCategory: Architecture, LifestyleTags: Building and Construction, UNStudio, sustainable design, Renovation, Office is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
