As part of our series covering the various researchers working on aging, we finally caught up with Dr. Michael Lustgarten, author of ‘Microbial Burden: A Major Cause Of Aging And Age-Related Disease’, and we did this short interview that we hope may be of interest to you. Hi Mike, can you tell us a little…

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…

We are holding our first Journal Club live stream event on May 30th at 13:00 EST/18:00 UK. Oliver Medvedik, Ph.D. and Ocean level Patrons will be discussing the research and the implications of epigenetic alterations on aging and as a primary aging process. The event will be streamed live to our Facebook page for viewers to watch, and…

In an attempt to foster a better understanding of how medicine and drug development work, we are going to take a look at clinical phases. The hope is to give you, the reader, a deeper appreciation for the various intricacies of the development process. Preclinical Studies In drug and therapy development, preclinical studies are a…

Researchers at the university of Dundee have shown that it is possible to target and destroy specific proteins within cells using a new directed protein missile system. This is very interesting, as it raises the possibility of targeting aberrant proteins present in diseases that currently have no drug that affects them. This opens the door…

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…

Meat is rich in creatine, an important energy buffer in muscle cells, and the main constituent of a popular sports supplement used by athletes. However, we’re now finding out that there’s more to creatine than ‘meats’ the eye. To be clear, it is not a good idea to wolf down loads of steaks, sausages, bacon….

May 15th is the birthday of Elie Metchnikoff, famous Russian/French scientist, a vice director of the Pasteur Institute in Paris, who was awarded a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1908 (together with Paul Ehrlich) for his work on Immunity in infectious diseases. But healthy longevity supporters know him for another achievement: a strong statement he made regarding aging, that helped to ignite interest in aging research for the next century

The removal of senescent cells has shown further potential for the treatment of osteoarthritis in this recent publication, where the researchers reduce the impact of post-injury osteoarthritis by clearing senescent cells[1]. As we have discussed many times in our publications, senescent cells are a key player in the aging process; if you are new to…
