Cascading waterfall
In a study recently published in Biochemistry and Biophysics Reports, researchers have shown that growing natural killer (NK) cells and re-introducing them back into the human bloodstream reduces senescence markers in a wide variety of immune cells. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells This research focuses on peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), a category that includes T...
Infectious disease
A meta-analysis published in GeroScience has shown that the well-studied drug rapamycin has positive effects on infection in mice, but dietary restriction seems to worsen the problem. Aging, immunity, and interventions This paper begins with the well-known information that aging impairs the immune system, harming its effectiveness against infectious diseases [1] while causing systemic inflammation...
Teeth and muscles
Researchers publishing in The Lancet have found a relationship between poor oral health and weaker muscles in people who are at least 70 years old. An established health link We have previously reported on the relationship between disease and oral health, specifically diabetes, and research has discussed its relationships to walking speed [1] and vascular...
Basic mouse
Scientists have shown that injection of extracellular vesicles secreted by young adipose-derived stem cells increases fitness and promotes tissue rejuvenation in aged mice [1]. Mode of communication Small extracellular vesicles are one of the ways in which cells communicate with each other [2]. Basically, cells engulf molecules, such as proteins, DNA, and RNA, in pieces...
Rats
A team of Spanish researchers publishing in Aging have reported that they can delay reproductive senescence in female rats by stimulating the production of insulin growth factor 1 (IGF-1) through gene therapy. A well-studied approach IGF-1 is a well-known anti-inflammatory compound, having shown positive effects in human cells [1] and in mouse models [2]. In...

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,...
