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...
Umbilical Cord
Researchers have found that intramuscular injections of plasma concentrate made from human umbilical cord blood improve various health biomarkers and decrease biological age in elderly people [1]. Old blood, young blood Circulating proteins have a significant impact on our health, and blood plasma transfusion is increasingly used against inflammatory conditions as well as some autoimmune...
Chaotic clocks
A preprint published in bioRxiv has demonstrated that the second-generation aging clocks PhenoAge, DunedinPACE, and GrimAge show increased but reversible age acceleration in mice and people exposed to significant stress. What clocks are for Epigenetic Clocks - What are they?An epigenetic clock is a biochemical test that uses DNA methylation levels and accumulation of methyl...
Brain Image
Cardiologists, epidemiologists, and other researchers publishing in Aging have discovered that epigenetic aging and brain scans can be combined to accurately predict cognitive decline. Two entirely different measurements The ongoing CARDIA study was started in 1985 to monitor coronary artery risk development in young adults (who are no longer young). This large cohort has been...
Rainbow Clocks
In a preprint published in bioRxiv, Morgan Levine and colleagues have identified and grouped 5,717 epigenetic CpG sites into 12 different modules, conducting an in-depth examination into how epigenetic clocks work. Epigenetic Clocks - What are they?An epigenetic clock is a biochemical test that uses DNA methylation levels and accumulation of methyl groups on DNA...
Work Stress
A study published in Aging that studied the Northern Finland Birth Cohort of 1966 has found some interesting and counterintuitive results regarding work stress and accelerated epigenetic aging. Work stress is widely associated with premature death It is common folk wisdom that too much stress leads to a shorter lifespan, and this belief has been...
