Lustgarten Microbial Burden
Dr. Michael Lustgarten delivers a clear and enlightening exploration of the intricate relationship between microbial burden and aging in Microbial Burden: A Major Cause of Aging and Age-Related Disease and What We Can Do to Fight Back! Through meticulous research and compelling analysis, the author sheds light on the profound impact of microbial burden and...
Extracellular vesicles
A review paper published in Cells has described multiple ways in which the secretion of extracellular vesicles (EVs) changes with aging, leading the authors to propose it as its own hallmark. Extracellular vesicles and their uses This review begins with an outline and explanation of extracellular vesicles and their classifications. Cells use extracellular vesicles to...
Updates
The year 2023 started with the publication of two remarkable review papers in Cell and Cell Metabolism by researchers addressing the hallmarks of aging and their interplay with the hallmarks of cancer [1,2]. These papers were authored by the same team that published the original 2013 Hallmarks of Aging paper [3]. The Hallmarks of AgingThere...
Enlarged cell
In a new review article published in Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology, researchers have suggested adding cellular enlargement to the hallmarks of aging [1]. Bigger is not always better Different cell types are known to have different shapes and sizes, which are dictated by their functions. In humans, sperm cells (male gametes) and ova...
Needle in a haystack
Researchers publishing in Nature Communications have determined that interventions that extend lifespan in mice may not have significant effects on the processes of aging. Improvement is not the same as slowing decline The researchers begin this paper by noting that previous studies have outlined a broad variety of dietary, environmental, and genetic factors that are...
New Hallmarks
Publishing in Aging five months after their panel discussion in Copenhagen, many well-known researchers have explained their reasons for wishing to add new hallmarks of aging to the existing paradigm. A new addition to an old paradigm What is Aging? The Nine Reasons We AgeAging is a series of processes that include direct damage, accumulation...
