These compounds can be taken orally and cross the blood-brain barrier. The full press release is included here. RICHMOND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- BioAge Labs, Inc. (“BioAge”,...
Heart Inflammation
A team of Chinese researchers has outlined the cellular link between age-related inflammation (inflammaging) and the physical aging of heart muscle cells (cardiomyocytes). NLRP3 and why it matters We have previously discussed the NLRP3 inflammasome, which releases inflammatory cytokines upon exposure to irritants [1], including reactive oxygen species (ROS) [2]. The researchers hypothesized that ROS,...
