Chronological age has been typically used as a way to gauge how someone is aging, however this is a poor measure indeed. People tend to age at different rates due to a variety of reasons, environment, diet, diseases in earlier life, stress, exercise and lifestyle all play a role in how a person ages. Clearly…

LAS VEGAS, NV, July 18, 2017. — Centers for Age Control has launched a fundraising campaign on Lifespan.io in support of the AgeMeter™, a diagnostic system to measure human functional age. The device is meant to assist in the assessment of therapeutics that address the aging processes during clinical trials, as well as being a…

Chronological age is now generally accepted by academics as being a poor means to identify how a person is aging. Far more useful is a person’s biological age in evaluating how fast someone is aging. Biological age is assessed using indicators known as aging biomarkers, and as rejuvenation biotechnology draws ever nearer, there is an…

Recently a journal landed on my desk involving one of my favorite subjects, aging biomarkers. The study authors have been developing a method to allow real-time visualization of senescent cells in living tissues and they have published their findings in the journal of the American chemical society here[1]. Unfortunately, like a lot of science (up…

Whilst looking through recent papers about biomarkers, this recent open access paper crossed my desk. The paper is the latest in a line of top-to-bottom reviews of aging biomarkers for humans. With companies like Unity Biotechnology and the David Sinclair lab entering human clinical trials later this year for senescent cell removal and DNA repair…

As human life expectancy has increased throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, this has led to a steady increase in the population of older people. With that increase has come the rise of age-related diseases and disabilities. As a result, it is becoming ever more important to develop preventative strategies to monitor and maintain health,…

The current available senescent cell biomarkers are limited and their accuracy is not ideal, so the arrival of better biomarkers that can do a better job are a welcome addition to the field. The current methods for detecting senescent cells leave a lot to be desired and have seen little innovation in the last decade…
