Novel therapeutic approaches may often require quite a bit of lateral thinking, as researchers at the Salk Institute have recently shown in a study presenting a novel method to interfere with cancer growth. The problem with cancer In a nutshell, the reason cancer is such an insidious enemy is that its cells divide uncontrollably, leading…

Researchers have demonstrated how alcohol damages mouse stem cell DNA in a new study, helping to explain why drinking can increase cancer risk[1]. The study was published in the journal Nature on January 3. There have been multiple cell culture studies looking at how alcohol promotes cancer, but this study used mice to show how…

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…

We have been talking about a number of new studies in past Journal Clubs, so we thought it was time to get into some aging theory. We chose to cover one of the most cited and highly regarded damage theories of aging in this edition of the club. In this edition of Journal Club, we…

The next Journal Club will be on October 31st at 13:00 EST/18:00 UK and will be streamed live from the Cooper Union, New York, to our Facebook page. The last episode we talked about the hallmarks of aging, a popular aging theory that places the various aging processes into of a number of damage categories (hallmarks) and proposes solutions…

We are doing a series of articles that discuss the Hallmarks of Aging. Published in 2013, this paper is highly regarded in academia and is one of the most cited papers in biology, with an average of being cited once every two days. The paper divides aging into distinct categories (“hallmarks”) of damage to explain…

Today we have a new study where researchers have created immune cells that ignore the way cancer tries to hide from detection. Hiding in plain sight Macrophages are one of the types of immune cell and are responsible for dealing with dangerous cells, such as those which have become cancerous. The problem is, most cancer…

Cancer is predominantly a disease of aging caused by genomic instability. Finding effective ways to prevent and treat cancer is therefore of great interest to those working in the field of aging research as well as those working in oncology.  Therapies that target combinations of neoantigens, distinctive markers on the surface of cancer cells that…
