Prostate enlargement
Researchers publishing in Aging have explained a relationship between inflammation, metabolic syndrome, and prostate enlargement. Not so benign Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is only called 'benign' to differentiate it from another well-known cause of prostate enlargement: prostate cancer. BPH is known to lead to bladder obstruction and lower urinary tract issues. It also coincides with...
Interrupted Sleep
A new preprint suggests that continuous sleep disruption might drive health problems via increased cellular senescence in visceral fat tissue [1]. Sleep and health Until recently, the impact of sleep on human health was largely overlooked, including for healthcare professionals who work long hours. Now, scientists are beginning to understand that impaired sleep quality drives...
Brain Inflammation
Scientists publishing in Nature have explained a key pathway that leads to immune dysfunction and neurodegeneration in aging. Feeling the STING Throughout this paper, the researchers cite other papers demonstrating a cause-and-effect relationship between initial damage and long-term effects. Perturbed mitochondria release their mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) into the internal liquid (cytosol) of microglia, the helper...
Elderly smiling
A team of researchers has recently published a study on the effects of senescence on periodontal tissues in Aging. Connecting bones and teeth We have previously outlined a study showing a relationship between gum disease and biomarkers of inflammation. Noting that aging itself is a risk factor for periodontitis [1], this study approaches this topic...
Sleep apnea
A study published in Heliyon has explained a relationship between sleep apnea and an increase of inflammatory factors in the mouth that are connected to the gum disease peridontitis. Check out Biostarks to learn more about their test kits. Connected dangers This paper begins with a discussion of peridontitis, which is caused by infection with...
Brain tumor
Combining results from human tumors and a mouse model, researchers publishing in Nature Communications have shown that senescent cells promote the growth of glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer. Deadly, aggressive, and hard to treat Glioblastoma is one of the most dangerous forms of cancer. Even surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy do little against this invasive...
