Sarcopenia, a condition that causes loss of muscle mass, is a common ailment that comes with aging. It wouldn’t be correct to talk about who is affected and who isn’t, because everyone experiences at least some degree of muscle mass loss, along with reduced strength, after age 40 or 50. As you may imagine, sarcopenia’s…

Researchers at Duke University have managed to create functional human muscle tissue using skin cells as the starting point[1]. This research builds on their previous work from 2015, when they grew the first functioning muscle tissue using cells obtained from muscle biopsies[2]. Being able to create muscle cells using non-muscle tissue opens the door for…

We have all seen it, the age-related loss of muscle mass and increasing frailty that generally accompanies advancing age. Recently the World Health Organization classified this age-related muscle wastage as a disease and thus sarcopenia entered official usage to describe it. There are a number of potential causes of sarcopenia and new research suggests that…

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…
