In a new study, researchers at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center have shown that the epigenetic alterations associated with cancer evolve in an erratic manner during the early stages of tumor formation[1]. These tumor-associated epigenetic changes ultimately focus on a subset of genes that are also observed in aging. Cancer and senescent cells are…

The latest of the regular “commentary on some recent theses” publications by Dr. Aubrey de Grey and collaborators has been released today. As is usual in these pieces, there is commentary on a variety of recent research topics, including the cellular senescence of astrocytes in the brain, which may lead to new therapies to combat…

Research shows that aging is far from a one-way process and that it is, in fact, plastic and subject to intervention. The aging processes are the foundation of age-related diseases, which include cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and heart disease. Researchers are increasingly realizing that in order to treat these diseases effectively, they must target the aging…

Today, February 21, was the birthday of Jeanne Louise Calment – the oldest confirmed living human being, who lived for an amazing 122 years and 164 days! Just imagine all the history she had seen, how much the world changed during her lifetime, and all the knowledge and wisdom she had gained. What if advances…

Today, we wanted to highlight more progress in a rapidly advancing area of medicine and talk about a new study that uses an exosomes-based approach for stroke treatment that repairs brain tissue. A stem cell-based approach to treating stroke Professor Steven Stice from the University of Georgia (UGA) and Nasrul Hoda of Augusta University led…

The SENS Research Foundation and the Forever Healthy Foundation have joined forces to host an exciting conference about rejuvenation biotechnology on March 15-17, 2018 at the Umspannwerk Alexanderplatz in Berlin, Germany. A conference for everyone The conference is open to the wider community interested in this field and anyone can attend. We believe that this…

Today, we would like to highlight a recent study in which researchers show a way to selectively accelerate bone regeneration. They have achieved this by delivering Jagged-1 to injuries instead of the bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) that have been traditionally used. What is jagged-1? Jagged-1 is an osteoinductive protein that activates the Notch signaling pathway,…

Researchers have created tiny DNA nanorobots that can deliver a protein payload that cuts off the blood supply to tumors in mice. DNA Origami According to a new study, the research team was able to create DNA nanorobots that can travel through the bloodstream, locate tumors, and deliver a protein that induces blood clotting, thus…

Great news, the AgeMeter stickers, and buttons are ready and will start shipping out at the end of the week! The bags, watches, and teeshirts are currently in print and production and will be following close behind once packed and ready to go out.
