Erase bad cells
A group of researchers has developed a delivery system that identifies senescent cells and injects them with a deadly compound. This offers a potential solution to the problem of targeted delivery of senolytics [1]. Cellular senescence has been implicated in numerous aging-related disorders, including fibrosis, diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer's. Today, senolytics, drugs that remove senescent...
Alzheimer's disease
Until now, it was unclear as to whether drugs that clear amyloid, which accumulate in the brain during aging and accompany diseases such as Alzheimer's, have any influence over cognitive decline. Previous studies have aimed to find this out, but results have been inconclusive due to study designs, hard-to-interpret data, and other issues that muddy...
Researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine have shown that they can block inflammation in mice, thereby protecting them from liver disease and hardening of the arteries while increasing their healthy lifespan. The study, published in the journal Nature, shows that inflammation can be blocked using a naturally occurring antibody that...
