Blood cells in an artery
A mouse study published in Aging Cell has outlined the similarities between artificially restricted cerebral blood flow and the reduced blood flow associated with aging. Aiming to understand vascular dementia Prior research has shown that reduced cerebral blood flow, known as hypoperfusion, results in vascular dementia and brain atrophy through multiple mechanisms, including neuroinflammation and...
Blood cells
Researchers have reversed the age-related decline in the function of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) in older mice using nicotinamide riboside. This success can make our blood more youthful and increase the effectiveness of stem cell transplantation [1]. There will be blood HSCs are the progenitors of all our blood cells. HSCs reside in the bone...
Albumin
Before we begin, it should be noted that this study was published on biorxiv, a pre-print website that hosts papers prior to peer review. Therefore the data should not be regarded as conclusive or accurate until it has been subject to the peer review process and accepted for journal publication. Please keep that in mind...
BioAge logo
BioAge, in a recent press release, has announced the start of its phase 2a clinical trial in elderly patients with unexplained anemia. BioAge is a California-based company founded in 2015 with a very direct focus on aging. It utilizes a systems biology approach and AI-based drug discovery platform to target important pathways which are found...
Biohackers after blood transfer
We interviewed a group of Russian biohackers who performed a plasma dilution experiment on themselves. This experiment, the first of its kind, was based on previous mouse studies by Drs. Irina and Michael Conboy. Some molecules, while essential for various body functions, can be harmful when overproduced. Inflammatory cytokines, such as transforming growth factor beta...
Elevian Logo
Elevian is a company that we have been keeping an eye on for a while, as it works on identifying blood factors that can spur regeneration. In particular, the company has been working with a naturally occurring molecule known as growth differentiation factor 11 (GDF11). Previous research has shown that when aged mice are given...
