Fight Aging!
November 27, 2020
A score or so different types of amyloid can form in the human body, each a protein that can become altered or misfolded in a way that encourages other molecules of the same protein to also alter or misfold. These broken proteins aggregate together into sheets and fibrils, forming solid deposits in and around cells...
Towards a Retinal Assessment of Alzheimer's Risk, Years in Advance of Symptoms
November 27, 2020
Researchers here report on progress towards non-invasive retinal scanning as an approach to determining Alzheimer's disease risk in the very early stages of progression towards the condition. The path to Alzheimer's is marked by years of a slow accumulation of amyloid-β, an antimicrobial peptide that can misfold to form solid aggregates. While the evidence suggests...
GrimAge Outperforms Other Epigenetic Clocks
November 27, 2020
There are now a variety of epigenetic clocks, weighted combinations of the methylation status of various CpG sites on the genome in various different tissues. The epigenetic marks of DNA methylation change constantly in response to circumstances and cell activities, but some of these changes are characteristic of the aged tissue environment, and thus correlate...

The SENS Research Foundation remains one of the most important organizations...
Investigating the Use of VEGF-B to Grow New Blood Vessels to Supply the Heart
November 26, 2020
Researchers are interested in provoking the body into growing additional blood vessels that can bypass areas of damage. Most of this work is focused on restoring long term supply of blood to heart tissue following a heart attack, and thus on regrowth in an environment of damage and damage-related signaling. It would be perhaps more...
