Telomerase Gene Therapy May Treat Fibrosis via a Reduced Burden of Cellular Senescence
August 11, 2020
A number of research groups are quite enthusiastic about the prospects for telomerase gene therapy as a treatment for aging and numerous age-related diseases. This is based on more than a decade of work in mice, showing extended life spans and improved metabolism. Over the past few years, reversal of fibrosis via telomerase gene therapy...
Fight Aging!
August 11, 2020
A great many approaches exist to slow aging in short-lived laboratory species such as nematodes, flies, and mice. The example here is an illustrative example, similar to dozens of other discoveries regarding life span and upregulation or downregulation of the expression of specific proteins. Since cellular biochemistry is a connected web of interactions, most such...
Fight Aging!
August 11, 2020
Extremely old people have such high mortality rates that studies such as this one here become practical, answering the question of how the gut microbiome changes in the final decline into death. It is well established that the gut microbiome is influential on health, and undergoes detrimental changes across the course of adult life, although...
Scientists found genes that help cancer cells to penetrate the brain
August 11, 2020
An international team of scientists, including a researcher from Sechenov University, reviewed scientific articles on proteins (and genes encoding them) that help cancer cells enter the brain. An understanding of the processes that facilitate the formation of metastases in the brain will allow scientists to create new methods for cancer diagnosis and treatment. Details of...
