Advanced Clock
In a paper published in Geroscience, researchers have developed a metric of systemic inflammation and used it to estimate mortality, finding that it performs better than epigenetic clocks. Evaluating a danger What is Inflammaging? Chronic Inflammation and AgingOne of the aging processes consists of a chronic, smoldering background of inflammation that researchers call β€œinflammaging”.Read More...
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...
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...
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...
