Strong mouse
In their publication in Stem Cell Research & Therapy, a team of researchers has shown how effective mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) are in a mouse model. Multipotent cells with multiple uses As multipotent stem cells, MSCs can differentiate into several different cell types, including fat cells, neurons, and bone cells [1]. The researchers point to...
Olive oil
Scientists have shown that oleanoic acid, a nutrient most associated with olive oil, greatly improves numerous markers of cardiac health in aging mice [1]. is a nutrient abundant in some foods, particularly olive oil. Olive oil has been shown to have health benefits compared to most other types of oil, but this data comes mostly...
Scientists have shown that chloroquine, a well-known anti-malarial drug and the cousin of hydroxychloroquine, attenuates inflammation and fibrosis while significantly extending median and maximum lifespan in naturally aged rats [1]. Fighting malaria since 1934 Chloroquine (CQ) was developed back in 1934 as an anti-malarial treatment and as such has enjoyed significant success. Since 2020, an analog...
Old man eye
Researchers publishing in Experimental Eye Research have discovered that the peptide aB-crystallin can reduce the cellular senescence that affects the progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). What is αB-crystallin? αB-crystallin is a well-known heat shock protein, a family of proteins that is used in temperature regulation. This protein has been previously demonstrated by this research...
Parkinson's
A study published in Cell Reports has found α-synuclein, the fundamental protein of Parkinson's disease, to be critical in immune function. The gut-brain axis as a channel for disease Parkinson's disease, which causes damage to the portion of the brain responsible for movement, is widely known to be caused by the aggregation of α-synuclein. This...
Spinal Injury
A team of researchers publishing in Aging have shown that resveratrol reduces inflammation and partially restores function in a rat model of spinal injury. In line with previous research This is far from the first study that aimed to use approaches associated with aging research in order to spur regeneration. For example, we have previously...
