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…

We wanted to bring your attention to an open-access publication in which the researchers suggest that the age-related decline of the thymus is more important than DNA mutation as a cancer risk factor[1]. Repairing the damage As we have discussed in this article, cancer is caused by DNA damage that creates mutations. Damage to our…

The thymus gland is located at the top of the breastbone and is where the majority of T cells are produced by the immune system. One can think of the thymus as being like an army camp where new soldiers are trained and given their weapons to fight invading forces; in this case, the T…
