Oisin Biotechnologies is a rejuvenation biotechnology company which received its seed funding from the Methuselah Foundation and SENS Research Foundation a few years ago. The current focus of Oisin is the targeted clearance of senescent cells, using drugs sometimes referred to as senolytics. Senescent cells are one of the hallmarks of aging, and as they…

The new research work on senolyic drugs by Baar et al. uses a rationally designed molecule that selectively targets senescent cells in vivo, both in an accelerated aging mouse model, and in normally aged mice as well, with few if any side effects[1]. Senolytics are a new class of potential anti-aging drugs that function by specifically…

The breaking news today is that yet another research group has entered the field of senescent cell clearance to treat aging. Therapies that remove senescent cells are known as senolytics and they have been a hot topic for the past year or so. Before we talk about the new study, let’s take a look at…

As your body ages, increasing amounts of your cells enter into a state of senescence. Senescent cells do not divide or support the tissue they are a part of, but instead emit a range of potentially harmful chemical signals, which encourage other nearby cells to also enter the same senescent state. Their presence causes many…

CellAge, together with a leading synthetic biology partner, Synpromics, are poised to develop a technology allowing for the identification and removal of harmful senescent cells. Senescent cells accumulate with age until they reach pathological levels and contribute to age-related diseases and chronic inflammation by secreting harmful signals that also poison neighboring cells. This downward spiral…

Our society has never aged more rapidly – one of the most visible symptoms of the changing demographics is the exponential increase in the incidence of age-related diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular diseases and osteoarthritis. Not only does aging have a negative effect on the quality of life among the elderly but it also causes a…

Announcing New Goal Structure Hi everyone! We have so far raised almost 22k dollars which is an amazing effort from the community, and as many people are asking for a more detailed budget, we are going to provide more information and accordingly revise the goal structure of the campaign a bit. A total of 45k is enough funding to run…

Take a look at our research summary and watch a mini-interview with Dr. Joao Pedro de Megalhaes about the importance of animal data Hey everyone! The campaign has raised over $9500 so far which is great and thanks to your support! You are helping to fast track this research and make a difference. We are happy about…

MMTP secrets revealed at AMA on Reddit! Hi there! We have now raised an amazing $8000 and we would like to thank all our supporters who contributed financially and helped us to spread the word. Yesterday we have held our first AMA on Reddit in r/Futurology, where the MMTP team answered various questions, provocative and not, technical and personal, and now…

Brian Kennedy from the Buck Institute is supporting MMTP! Dear friends, it’s been a two days since we launched our Senolytics campaign on Lifespan.io, and during this time we have already raised over $3000, which brings us a big step closer to our goal of funding some real breakthrough research! We thank all the early donors for their support; we are currently building…
