Lung branches
June 21, 2021
A new review published in the American Journal of Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology discusses the causes of, and potential treatments for, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Fibrosis, but not focused on fibroblasts In the lungs, the trachea (airway) breaks out into a tree-like system of nodes. Each branch ends in alveoli, which are responsible for...
Blood cells in an artery
June 16, 2021
A mouse study published in Aging Cell has outlined the similarities between artificially restricted cerebral blood flow and the reduced blood flow associated with aging. Aiming to understand vascular dementia Prior research has shown that reduced cerebral blood flow, known as hypoperfusion, results in vascular dementia and brain atrophy through multiple mechanisms, including neuroinflammation and...
Bosu exercise
June 14, 2021
A new study published in Aging Cell shows that a 12-week program of structured exercise lowers the activity of the inflammatory SASP in people in their mid-60s. Why we Age: Cellular SenescenceAs your body ages, more of your cells become senescent. Senescent cells do not divide or support the tissues of which they are part;...
Red coronavirus
June 09, 2021
New research published in the journal Science has shown that the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, causes senescent cells to secrete more of the senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP), causing hyperinflammation and weakening the body's defenses against viruses. Why we Age: Cellular SenescenceAs your body ages, more of your cells become senescent....

A team of researchers led by Dr. Judith Campisi of the Buck Institute has discovered valuable information about how cells express the senescence marker p21 [1]. Why we Age: Cellular SenescenceAs your body ages, more of your cells become senescent. Senescent cells do not divide or support the tissues of which they are part; instead,...
Mitochondrion

A new study conducted by a team of Japanese scientists and published in Scientific Reports details how cells can have their damaged mitochondria destroyed and replaced with healthy ones, offering a potential solution to the problem of mitochondrial dysfunction. Why we Age: Mitochondrial DysfunctionAs they age, the mitochondria in our cells lose their ability to...
