It is Plausible that Continual Removal of Senescence Cells Would Impair Regeneration and Limit Benefits to Life Span
The accumulation of senescent cells with advancing age is harmful. Selectively destroying those cells, even as few as a third of them, and even just once in later life, produces significant benefits to health and life span in mice. Cells become senescent in response to molecular damage, or to the signaling of nearby senescent cells,...
YAP Upregulation as a Potentially Broad Basis for Cancer Therapies
The future of cancer therapy, and ultimately an end to cancer, will be built atop mechanisms that are as close to universal as possible, such as inhibition of telomere lengthening, or that are relevant to a large fraction of cancers, such as the example noted here. Only broadly applicable mechanisms allow for the cost-effective development...
Fight Aging!
Aging kills most people in the world, and near all people in the wealthier parts of the world. It doesn't just kill, but also produces decades of declining health and capabilities, increased pain and suffering. Addressing the causes of aging, uncovering the mechanisms of aging and treating them, should have been the top priority in...
Eureka Alert
(St. Jude Children's Research Hospital) A collaboration led by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Shanghai Children's Medical Center and others revealed how thiopurines produce mutations that lead to multi-drug resistant leukemia and relapse.
New organ-on-a-chip finds crucial interaction between blood, ovarian cancer tumors
(Texas A&M University) Researchers at Texas A&M University are pushing organ-on-a-chip devices to new levels that could change the way clinicians approach cancer treatment, particularly ovarian cancer. A team has recently submitted a patent disclosure with the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station.
Eureka Alert
(St. Jude Children's Research Hospital) St. Jude Children's Research Hospital study highlights the power of comprehensive whole genome, whole exome and RNA sequencing to better understand and treat each patient's cancer.
