A team of researchers, including renowned geneticist Professor George Church, has published a new paper demonstrating the mitigation of multiple age-related diseases using a multi-target gene therapy. Treating multiple age-related diseases at once George Church is a very prominent figure in genetics and aging research, and he created quite a stir last year when he…

Scientists have shown that the removal of non-dividing senescent cells, which are normally associated with aging, also appears to prevent Type 1 diabetes in diabetic mouse strains. Clearing senescent beta cells prevents T1 diabetes Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin. Insulin is a hormone…

Welcome to part two of a two-part series exploring NAD+ biology; you can find part one here. There are already a myriad of excellent reviews on NAD+ biology in general [1-3], so, in this article, we will be mainly focusing on the NAD+ precursor nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN). NMN and synthesis of NAD+ NMN can be…

Progress has been made towards a potential solution to type 1 diabetes. The novel approach seeks to cure type 1 diabetes and to allow type 2 diabetics to stop using insulin shots by altering other cells in the pancreas so they produce insulin. The research team based at UT Health San Antonio have found a…

Periodic fasting has long been demonstrated to have beneficial effects on autoimmune disorders, cancer prevention and treatments, cardiovascular disease, and a myriad of other ailments. This most recent paper by Cheng et al. might add the treatment of Type 1 diabetes to that list[1]. If successful in humans, it has the potential to reverse some or most of…
