Bone marrow injection
Scientists have verified the effectiveness of stem cell transplants, researched a core reason behind it, and published their findings in Aging Cell. The niche controls what stem cells do Back in 1978, Raymond Schofield proposed that hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), which make blood cells, are governed by their local microenvironment, the niche in which they...
White mouse
Scientists have concluded that rapamycin treatment started in early mid-life can prevent age-related blood flow impairment in the hindlimbs of wild-type, atherosclerotic, and Alzheimer's model mice [1]. PAD and aging Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is defined as reduced blood flow to the lower limbs. Age is a major risk factor for PAD, as the disease...
Back from the dead
Researchers have been able to achieve substantial recovery of cellular and organismal activity in pigs that had been dead for a full hour [1]. When is it too late? Advances in resuscitation have already moved the boundaries of life and death, making it possible to revive a person several minutes after the heart stops beating....
Blood donation
Scientists have shown that blood donation strongly affects skin aging in mice, probably by lowering the levels of toxic free iron [1]. The good bloodshed Before the dawn of modern medicine, bloodletting was one of the favorite arrows in medieval doctors’ quivers. Of course, it was a savage and unscientific instrument that probably did more...
Heterochronic Parabiosis
A preprint published on bioRxiv, whose authors include well-known biogerontologist Vadim Gladyshev, has shown us many interesting details of the effects that heterochronic parabiosis has on aging mice. An old concept studied in new depth Heterochronic parabiosis is the linking of the circulatory systems of young and aged animals. While the researchers note that this...
Bone Marrow
In a study published in Aging, researchers have found that younger hematopoietic cells can restore older hematopoietic cells through microvesicles, which are facilitators of intercellular communication. Why we Age: Altered Intercellular CommunicationAltered intercellular communication, as described in the Hallmarks of Aging, is the change in signals between cells that can lead to some of the...
