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...

Researchers have shown that resveratrol reverses several features of ovarian aging in mice while activating most sirtuins and boosting mitochondrial health [1]. Ovaries age first In many mammals, including humans, ovarian aging is premature compared to other systems. The reasons for this accelerated loss of function are not entirely clear, but they are known to...

Scientists have successfully treated ovarian aging in mice with compounds that target fibrosis and promote mitochondrial health [1]. Why do ovaries age faster? Ovarian aging is fascinating because one bodily system completely shuts down while the rest of the body is still in good health. Therefore, studying ovarian aging could provide us with valuable insights...

Our interviewee today holds that female reproductive aging, or ovarian aging, is accelerated compared to other organs and that it has a deep impact both on the lives and health of women and on our society as a whole. Nevertheless, ovarian aging continues to be underresearched, with only a handful of companies working in the...
