Two Directions Infinity
In a preprint published in bioRxiv, a team of Singaporean researchers, including Jan Gruber, has found that a combination of stem cell rejuvenation and senescent cell removal is synergistically more effective than either alone. Different but related aspects of aging Why we Age: Cellular SenescenceAs your body ages, more of your cells become senescent. Senescent...
Ginger root
A paper supported by the National Institute on Aging has shown that gingerenone A, a component of ginger extract, is a natural senolytic that is potentially more powerful and less toxic than the combination of dasatinib and quercetin [1]. Ginger and many other plants are widely known for their anti-inflammatory effects. Cellular senescence, in turn,...
Mice and food
New senolytics data was released from Dr. James L. Kirkland’s Mayo Clinic lab and published in The Lancet [1]. Prior studies have shown that α-Klotho protein decreases with age in mice and humans [2,3]. It has also been demonstrated that mice that lack α-Klotho have shorter lifespans, cognitive impairment, sarcopenia, vascular dysfunction, osteopenia, cardiac hypertrophy...
Guinea pig
Publishing in Aging, a team of researchers has explained the relationship between tuberculosis (TB) and multiple aspects of aging, including epigenetic alterations and the senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP). A disease known to cause long-term harm Tuberculosis, a disease that has proliferated around the world, kills 1.4 million people every year. Previous research has shown that,...
Aging DNA
In a new study, mice transduced with a longevity-associated variant (LAV) of the BPIFB4 gene showed less immunosenescence and healthier vasculature [1]. The importance of having good genes Longevity-associated alleles prove that aging does not affect everyone equally. On average, centenarians and supercentenarians are more protected from age-related diseases than other people, and this protection...
Smart mouse
Scientists have shown that clearing senescent neural precursor cells with the senolytic drug navitoclax reverses the age-related decline in neurogenesis and improves spatial memory in mice [1]. Not to be replaced The brain is an organ of special concern for geroscientists. It is theorized that we might soon be able to replace many aging organs,...
