Handful of medication
A twin study published in GeroScience has yielded results suggesting that calcium channel blockers, drugs that are commonly used to treat hypertension and other diseases, slow down epigenetic aging and may lengthen healthy lifespan. A wide field The researchers begin this paper by noting that over 400 compounds, as found in the DrugAge database, have...
Elderly eye
An accepted manuscript in eLife SciencesΒ has described eyeAge, a new clock that uses deep learning to analyze the eye in detail in order to predict chronological age and age acceleration. Check out Biostarks to learn more about their test kits. Retinal signs of aging This project was developed with the knowledge that fundus imagery, which...
Fitness watch
A new biomarker for measuring biological aging based on physical fitness has been published in Aging, and it has been found to be useful in predicting health issues. Check out Biostarks to learn more about their test kits. A clock with a different purpose Epigenetic Clocks - What are they?An epigenetic clock is a biochemical...
Advanced clock
A team publishing in Human Genomics has developed a new model for analyzing epigenetic changes that uses nonlinear analysis. Current clocks are linear Epigenetic Clocks - What are they?An epigenetic clock is a biochemical test that uses DNA methylation levels and accumulation of methyl groups on DNA to determine biological age. There are many different...
Food clock
In a paper published in Nature Aging, researchers have shown that caloric restriction modestly slows down the pace of aging in healthy young people as measured by one of the DNA methylation clocks [1]. CALERIE design A plethora of animal data has shown beneficial effects of caloric restriction for health and longevity. Human trials, albeit...
Brain clock
Researchers publishing in Aging have found a correlation between cognitive decline and measurements of epigenetic aging. Familiar epigenetic clocks Epigenetic Clocks - What are they?An epigenetic clock is a biochemical test that uses DNA methylation levels and accumulation of methyl groups on DNA to determine biological age. There are many different kinds of clocks, and...
