Researchers from the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute have made progress in the quest to rejuvenate the aging immune system by identifying the factors responsible for the age-related decline of the thymus.  The thymus shrinks as we age The thymus is one of the most important organs in the body, and it is where thymocytes produced…

Today, we wish to highlight a new open access publication in which the researchers take a novel approach to the regeneration of the thymus, a small but vitally important organ that is key to our immune system. The thymus shrinks as we age The thymus is one of the most important organs in the body,…

In a new study, researchers at the University of Pécs, Hungary used cell secretions known as exosomes to regenerate the thymus, one of the most important organs in the body. The thymus shrinks as we age The thymus is arguably one of the most critical organs in the body, and it is where new T…

In 2018, Reason and Bill Cherman founded Repair Biotechnologies, which, as its name suggests, is a rejuvenation biotechnology company focused on damage repair approaches to aging. The company has recently completed a seed round of investment funding, with a total of $2.15 million being put into the company’s coffers to bolster research and development. Reason…

Researchers at UCLA have managed to guide pluripotent stem cells into becoming adult T cells, the cells that patrol the body to kill cancer and other diseases and that are trained in our thymi. The study, published in Cell Stem Cell, was led by senior author Gay Crooks, M.D., a professor of pathology and laboratory…

Today, we present an interview with Reason, the editor of Fight Aging! and co-founder of Repair Biotechnologies. We asked him about the state of rejuvenative therapies, some of which may be available in the near future. Fight Aging! was the first blog that tackled the science of aging in a serious fashion. Many people still…

Today, we want to highlight a study that shows the link between atherosclerosis and the age-related shrinking of the thymus, which is arguably the most important organ of the immune system [1]. The adaptive and innate immune systems and atherosclerosis The thymus is essentially like an army base where new T cells develop and are…

Cancer is the poster child of age-related diseases, and a recent study sheds light on why the risk of cancer rises dramatically as we age. Abstract For many cancer types, incidence rises rapidly with age as an apparent power law, supporting the idea that cancer is caused by a gradual accumulation of genetic mutations. Similarly,…

Earlier this year, we hosted the Ending Age-Related Diseases 2018 conference at the Cooper Union, New York City. This was a conference designed to bring together the best in the aging research and biotech investment worlds and saw a range of industry experts sharing their insights. As the human body ages, the thymus begins to…

If you need yet another reason to exercise as part of your health and longevity strategy, then check out this study, which suggests that aging of the immune system can be slowed by exercise. The problem with our modern lives is that we are, in general, much more sedentary than our ancient ancestors, who hunted…
