Naked Mole Rat Side
A study published in Aging has shown that the skin of the naked mole rat retains nearly all of its physical and biochemical properties as these animals chronologically age, providing new insight into how and why these animals live so long. Wrinkly, but not like humans wrinkle With a wrinkly, largely hairless body, the naked...
Oxygen tank
Recent experiments published in the latest issue of Aging associate hyperbaric oxygen therapy with improvements in several biomarkers of skin aging. SkinSkin, as the most readily visible organ of the human body, is one of the first to let us know that we are getting older. Our skin goes beyond appearance; it protects our internal...
Skin aging
A group of researchers successfully alleviated aspects of skin aging by treating skin cells with the NAD precursor nicotinamide [1]. Hard work done by skin leads to its burnout Skin aging might not be lethal, apart from the increased risk of skin cancer, but it's surely conspicuous, frustrating, and emblematic of organismal aging. Being our...
Collagen is an important structural element of skin and other tissues.
In this article we will be exploring the role of collagens in aging and skin structure. What is collagen? Collagens are important structural proteins for the various tissues in our bodies. These include tendon, cartilage, ligaments, blood vessels, muscles, and skin. They act as supporting structures and tether cells together. They give our skin and...
Injured Hand
The latest research out of the Journal of Cell Biology shines a light on why our skin loses its healing abilities as we age. SkinSkin, as the most readily visible organ of the human body, is one of the first to let us know that we are getting older. Our skin goes beyond appearance; it...
Scarring
Researchers have been trying to find out how to stop the formation of scars for decades, and now, thanks to a new mouse study, they are one step closer. Scars are a fast but poor repair Many of us have scars of one kind or another from accidents or surgery. As unpleasant as they are,...
