Researchers have found that by manipulating a single RNA molecule, they can reverse some aspects of cellular aging and regenerate aged cells. Old cells resist regeneration As we grow older, our cells gradually age, leading to the development of various diseases. Therefore, inducing cellular regeneration is one of the approaches that researchers are using to…

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…

You might think that being overweight may cause you health problems only until you finally shed those extra pounds, at which point everything will be fine again. It sounds reasonable, but it might be not so easy. According to a new study published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine on December 27, the negative effects…

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are one of the most thoroughly studied and understood stem cell types. They are used in a wide range of therapies, and the many studies using MSCs have enjoyed varied levels of success, depending on delivery methods, patients, co-therapies and other factors. Today, we will be taking a look at MSCs…

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…

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…

The immune system plays a key role in tissue regeneration, and the various types of immune cells, such as macrophages, can help or hinder that repair process. Inflammation is part of the immune response, but with aging that immune response becomes deregulated and the inflammation becomes excessive. Excessive levels of inflammation generally speaking inhibit tissue…
