Hallmarks of Aging – Altered Intercellular Communication

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Today, we conclude our ongoing series discussing the Hallmarks of Aging [1] by looking at the hallmark of altered intercellular communication, the change in signals between cells that can lead to some of the diseases and disabilities of aging.

As an integrative hallmark, altered intercellular communication is caused by other hallmarks of aging. As a result, there is some hope that therapies targeting these other hallmarks will be able to treat this one.

There are a wide range of complex intercellular communications associated with aging, but we will focus on the ones discussed in the Hallmarks of Aging paper.
