NEW YORK - June 15, 2022 - NOVOS, a company that develops science-based products to slow down aging, announced results of two studies demonstrating that the combination of ingredients in its products, NOVOS Core and NOVOS Boost, protect against DNA damage and cellular aging (senescence). A study found that a combination of the 12 ingredients...
Rectal cancer
Researchers publishing in the New England Journal of Medicine have been able to completely eliminate stage 2 and 3 rectal tumors with a single monoclonal antibody drug [1]. Therapy comes with a price If we leave out skin cancers, colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in the US. According to the American...
Mouse DNA
In a new study published in Nature Aging, researchers have shown that inducing a truncated FOXM1 gene extends lifespan in both progeric and naturally aging mice [1]. FOXO genes and longevity Forkhead box (FOX) genes are transcription factors: genes that drive the expression of other genes and are known to play an important role in...
Egg cell
A group of researchers has documented in Aging that Epitalon, a synthetic peptide made of four amino acids, slows the aging of egg cells (oocytes) after ovulation. Aging makes fertilization difficult Oocyte aging is well-known to lead to fertilization deficiencies and a host of other problems that are visible in the cells themselves, including abnormalities...
In a study published in Nature, scientists have found an extremely strong correlation between somatic mutation rate and lifespan across several species, highlighting the importance of mutation burden for aging [1]. The question of why lifespan varies so vastly among species, including closely related ones, has always fascinated geroscientists. Studying exceptionally long-lived species might reveal...
Skin aging
A group of researchers successfully alleviated aspects of skin aging by treating skin cells with the NAD precursor nicotinamide [1]. Hard work done by skin leads to its burnout Skin aging might not be lethal, apart from the increased risk of skin cancer, but it's surely conspicuous, frustrating, and emblematic of organismal aging. Being our...
