Today, we take a look at three key emerging technologies that might add extra healthy years to your life by addressing the aging processes directly to prevent or delay age-related diseases. Senolytics – Removing aged dysfunctional cells to promote tissue regeneration As we age, increasing amounts of our cells enter into a state known as…

There are many benefits to exercise and how it can reduce the impact of the aging process. We have previously talked about how even a moderate amount of gentle exercise, such as walking, dancing, and strength training, can improve health and reduce mortality. New research suggests that even moderate levels of physical activity can reduce…

T Cells are a major component of the formidable immune system that the body keeps at the ready to respond to the first sign of infection or disease. T cells detect if cells have been infected with a virus; upon detection, they trigger these cells’ ablation and destroy the virus. Unfortunately, the T cells do…

Natural killer (NK) cells are lymphocytes, immune cells which have a powerful arsenal of cytotoxic weaponry that they can use against tumors. Unfortunately, tumors protect themselves using a protective microenvironment that shields them from attack from NK cells. This microenvironment promotes tumor growth and survival and has an immunosuppressive effect that blunts the attempts of…

Today, we are going to have a look at a new study that shows that senescent, non-dividing aged cells can be somewhat restored to working order using a new technique. Before we do that, let’s take a look at what senescent cells are and how cellular senescence protects us from cancer and other harmful diseases….

Changes to the microbiome in the gut may explain why related conditions are linked to different risk levels and types of gastric tumors, according to a new study. What are the microbiota and microbiome? The microbiota is an “ecological community of commensal, symbiotic and pathogenic microorganisms” found in and on all multicellular organisms. A microbiota…

Atherosclerosis is the number one killer in the world, and science is working on solutions to combat this age-related disease. A new mouse study has shown that the drug trodusquemine can melt away the accumulated arterial plaques that lead to heart attacks and strokes. What is Atherosclerosis? Atherosclerosis is an age-related disease in which toxic,…

In recent articles, we have talked about the potential of the immune system to help repair tissue, including for peripheral nerve damage, Atherosclerosis, and Parkinson’s. Immune cells not only fight infection; as this new study shows, they also help the nervous system remove debris, paving the way for nerve regeneration following injury. While previous studies…

A new study has shown that it is possible to reverse the scarring that forms after a heart attack, turning it back into healthy heart tissue. The researchers demonstrated that they can change fibroblasts (scar tissue cells) into cardiomyocytes (heart muscle cells), though getting to the bottom of how this happens has been a challenge….

The first results of two human clinical trials using stem cell therapy for age-related frailty have been published, and the results are very impressive indeed. The studies show that the approach used is effective in tackling multiple key age-related factors. Aging research has made significant progress in the last few years, with senescent cell clearing…
