Tag: Stem cell exhaustion

January 13, 2020
You know the story, and it happens to us all eventually: the older we get, the harder our brains find it to learn and remember new things. There are likely to be a myriad of reasons why the brain gets increasingly worse as we age, but these reasons are still poorly understood. Like the old...

On this talk episode of X10, Nazli Eskici of the University of Helsinki discusses stem cells, the cells that form all the functional cells of the body - and the exhaustion of which is one of the hallmarks of aging.

A new study recently accepted by iScience has shown that a specific genetic alteration can selectively remove pluripotent stem cells from stem cell therapies in order to purify them for use in treatment. The cells we don't want As we age, our stem cells both decrease in number and become less efficient in replenishing somatic...

A recent review shows the current state of the industry with regards to using human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) to create cells that are useful for the study of, and therapies for, the human heart. Pluripotent Stem Cells Stem cells are the cells that form every other cell in the body, and adult humans naturally...

Aging is a series of processes in which the body's ability to perform functions gradually decreases. The Hallmarks of Aging includes such things as an increase in senescent cells and a decrease in stem cells, but decreasing NAD+ and increasing free radicals matter as well. This article will cover a few root causes of aging...

Stem cell transplants have been of great interest to aging researchers, and, in a new study, they have successfully increased mouse lifespan by using stem cell therapy. While this has been previously achieved, this experiment was more refined than older studies and sheds new light on the potential of tissue regeneration through stem cells. The...
