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...
Healthy gums
A cellular study published in the Journal of Dental Sciences has shown that Vitamin D alleviates inflammaging related to the oxidative stress brought on by advanced glycation end-products (AGEs). Diabetes and AGEs Previous research has shown that the uncontrolled blood sugars associated with Type 2 diabetes attach themselves to other proteins and fats. This process,...

Researchers publishing in Experimental Eye Research have discovered that the peptide aB-crystallin can reduce the cellular senescence that affects the progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). What is αB-crystallin? αB-crystallin is a well-known heat shock protein, a family of proteins that is used in temperature regulation. This protein has been previously demonstrated by this research...
Bad news
A study published in Aging has shown that inhibiting histone deacetylases (HDACs), an approach used for treating cancer and other diseases, can lead to cellular senescence. Why we Age: Cellular SenescenceAs your body ages, more of your cells become senescent. Senescent cells do not divide or support the tissues of which they are part; instead,...
