Fat rat
In a new study published in Scientific Reports, researchers have uncovered the molecular mechanism underlying the link between obesity and joint degeneration [1]. Obesity and osteoarthritis Obesity accelerates aging and is associated with several age-associated diseases, including osteoarthritis, an inflammatory condition that leads to joint degeneration. Obesity is often accompanied by low-grade chronic inflammation, which...
Severe brain disease
In the Journal of Inflammation, researchers from Johns Hopkins University have published a detailed review of the relationship between brain inflammation and the principal diseases of dementia. A focus on genetics and environment One out of twenty Americans over 85 have Parkinson's disease [1], and seven out of twenty have Alzheimer's [2]. While genes are...
Guinea pig injection
Scientists have shown that intravenous delivery of mesenchymal stem cells, which has some advantages over the more conventional intra-articular injection, alleviates age-related osteoarthritis and decreases inflammation in guinea pigs [1]. Systemic administration Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease, is one of the most common causes of disability in old age. By limiting the ability to maintain...
Elderly Blood Draw
Published in GeroScience, a groundbreaking study from the renowned Conboy lab has confirmed that plasma dilution leads to systemic rejuvenation against multiple proteomic aspects of aging in human beings. Systemic molecular excess This paper takes the view that much of aging is driven by systemic molecular excess. Signaling molecules, antibodies, and toxins, which gradually accumulate...
Hands together mouse
Scientists have found that rapamycin and metformin work hand in hand in diabetes-prone mice, boosting each other's effectiveness and blocking side effects [1]. The combination hypothesis Rapamycin and metformin are probably the two most promising anti-aging drugs known. Both have been in use for various indications for decades and have decent safety profiles. However, there...
Stroke
Publishing in Aging, a team of Chinese researchers has provided evidence showing a relationship between systemic inflammation and prognosis after a stroke. Stroke is a deadly and common affliction As the researchers point out, strokes are the leading cause of death in China, with strokes caused by a loss of blood supply (ischemic strokes) being...
