A collective of scientists has shown that osteoarthritis can be alleviated by guiding skeletal stem cells towards differentiation into chondrocytes, which are responsible for producing healthy cartilage [1]. Osteoarthritis (OA) is a classic example of an age-related disease. While almost non-existent in younger people, it affects as much as half of the over-65 population worldwide....

Researchers have taken a look at how caloric restriction seems to improve intestinal stem cell function in a new open-access study. Inflammaging is a precursor of age-related diseases The lining of the intestines helps to prevent the entry of microbes and unwanted molecules into the bloodstream beyond; however, as we age, the integrity of this...

Researchers from Johns Hopkins Medicine have successfully used stem cells to repair diabetic damage to retinal blood vessels. The researchers believe that their findings will advance regenerative approaches that seek to reverse conditions such as diabetic retinopathy and other eye diseases that lead to blindness. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have been around for well...

A study published in Aging and Disease shows the effectiveness of mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapy against a deadly immune reaction caused by COVID-19. While scientists all over the world are working on a vaccine that would be effective against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which is responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic, a group of researchers from...

Dr. Aubrey de Grey of SENS Research Foundation was interviewed by the extremely popular Joe Rogan, and they discussed the damage repair approach to aging. Dr. de Grey talked about the current state of aging research, including stem cell therapies, and explained the role of SENS in developing next-generation rejuvenation biotechnology therapies. He also brought...
