The human thymus
Publishing in Nature Communications' Cell Death Discovery, a team of Chinese researchers has discovered a reason for thymic involution, the age-related decline of the thymus. Adaptive Immune SystemThe adaptive immune system is a complex mechanism protects us from threats, including viruses and cancer. T cells and B cells are the backbone of this system.Read More...
X10 Thymic Rejuvenation
On this episode of X10, we talk about the TRIIM trial and question whether or not its participants have become biologically younger. Script If you're lucky, right now you're aging at a rate of one year per year—that is, your biological age is the same as your chronological age. If you are unlucky, you might...
researcher working with cell culture
New research published in Biomacromolecules has successfully cultured thymic epithelial cells in vitro. Adaptive Immune SystemThe adaptive immune system is a complex mechanism protects us from threats, including viruses and cancer. T cells and B cells are the backbone of this system.Read More A 3D biomaterial for thymic epithelial cells Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine...
In a review paper, a group of scientists highlight a new strategy that addresses the shortcomings of stem cell therapy by adding T cell progenitors to the graft [1]. Adaptive Immune SystemThe adaptive immune system is a complex mechanism protects us from threats, including viruses and cancer. T cells and B cells are the backbone...
Thymus
Researchers have successfully demonstrated that rejuvenation of the aged thymus to make it functionally younger again is possible. The thymus wastes away as we age The thymus is a small organ located in the upper part of the chest directly behind the sternum and between the lungs. Before we are even born and through childhood,...
