Rejuvenation Roundup December
Quite a number of readily understandable reviews were published this month, along with an X10 episode on epigenetic alterations; if you're new to the biology of aging or want to introduce someone else to the topic with new material, this is a great time to start. LEAF News We will be returning to New York...
Teeth
A new study shows that short-term treatment with the common organ rejection drug rapamycin reverses periodontal bone loss, attenuates inflammation, and makes the oral microbiome revert to a more youthful state in old mice. What is rapamycin? Rapamycin (also known as sirolimus) is a macrolide, a class of antibiotics that includes Biaxin (Clarithromycin), Zithromax (Azithromycin),...
Hand blood vessels
A new blood test could reveal your age, according to a new study published in Nature Medicine by researchers at the Wyss-Coray Lab at the Stanford School of Medicine [1]. Your real age is written in your blood The study saw researchers examining blood samples and the levels of various proteins within them in order...
Interview Greg Potter
We had the opportunity to interview Greg Potter, Ph.D., a researcher of lifestyle factors in health throughout life, at Biohacking Conference Moscow, which was hosted at the Congress Centre Technopolis Moscow on September 19th. In a provocative 2017 publication, Serge Faguet claimed to have spent $200,000 on becoming healthier and happier through biohacking; since then,...
Elderly hands
A new study sheds light on the accumulation of senescent cells and suggests that therapies that remove them could be beneficial both immediately and in the long term for human health and longevity. Normally, as cells become damaged beyond repair, exhausted, and no longer able to replicate, they are removed from the body via a...
Bread yeast
Building upon previous studies, a new study has unearthed critical facts about the basic biology behind the TORC1 pathway, identifying how caloric restriction leads to a chain of effects that activate the protein Maf1, repress RNA transcription, and slow genomic instability, which is one of the primary hallmarks of aging. A long chain of causes...
