Anti-aging therapies targeting senescent cells: Facts and fiction

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

It’s an exciting time to be an elderly mouse. Researchers believe that by removing senescent cells (cells with a persistent damage response), which naturally accumulate with age, senior rodents can regrow hair, run faster, and improve organ function. This strategy may bring us one step closer to the “fountain of youth,” but it’s important to be cautious and not hype, says researcher of aging Peter de Keizer of the Erasmus University Medical Center in the Netherlands. In an Opinion published December 29 in Trends in Molecule Medicine, he discusses the milestones the field still needs to hit before translation in humans is ready for discussion.

The best gift scientists can have for the New Year is funding for another longevity research!

Posted by in category: life extension

121 people including me have already sent their gifts to CellAge project, what about you? wink

Hello everyone! There are some great news, today CellAge campaign successfully reached amazing $6 000! This makes 15% of the goal, and we are very grateful to 121 brave people who decided to support the development of a universal test system to target senescent cells!

If you have not yet supported the campaign with a donation, here is a reminder that the best New Year gift for scientists is funding to launch another longevity study! bigsmile

Hour-Long Nap May Boost Brain Function in Older Adults

Posted by in categories: education, health, life extension, neuroscience

My grandparents taught me the importance of a power nap; and it does help.

We’re not sure what the boss would have to say about it if you suddenly downed tools and made a decision to have a little sleep, but new research has found that taking an hour’s nap after lunch can have a number of health benefits, including preventing brain ageing.

The study conducted among the older Chinese men by a team of worldwide researchers concentrated mainly on post-lunchtime napping and its impact on the health of elderly people.

Stem Cell Therapy Injections

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Stem Cell therapy, is one form of Comprehensive Prolotherapy available for arthritis treatment, and other chronic pain conditions at Caring Medical and Rehabilitation Services. Our same-day procedure utilizes a person’s own mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow or fat cells to treat degenerated joints. In this video, the stem cell therapy treatment is demonstrated on an athlete with severe osteoarthritis of the knee, by Ross Hauser, MD. Dr. Hauser has specialized in comprehensive Prolotherapy and Orthobiologic treatments since 1993 and treated tens of thousands of patients with excellent success, even patients who have failed surgery, knee replacement, or other treatments for arthritis and pain. To make an appointment with one of our specialists or for an opinion on your case and to learn more about our Stem Cell Prolotherapy, visit us at http://www.caringmedical.com/stem-cell-therapy/

Contact our team to tell us more about your case and see if you are a good candidate for our treatments:

The Lifeboat Foundation and LEAF join Forces

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, education, existential risks, life extension, lifeboat, nanotechnology, robotics/AI

I figured they would post it themselves but I got too excited and decided to spread it around.

The Lifeboat Foundation is a nonprofit organization devoted to encouraging the promotion and advancement of science while helping develop strategies to survive existential risks and the possible abuse of technology. They are interested in biotechnology, nanotechnology, robotics and AI and fostering the safe and responsible use of these powerful new technologies. The Life Preserver program is aligned with our mission to promote and develop rejuvenation biotechnology capable of combating age-related diseases.

We believe that a bright future awaits mankind and support the ethical and safe use of new medical technologies being developed today, thus we consider the goals of the Lifeboat Foundation to be compatible with ours and are pleased to move forward with them in official collaboration. As part of our commitment to the ethical progress of medical science LEAF promotes scientific research and learning via our crowdfunding website Lifespan.io and our educational hub at the LEAF website. A number of LEAF board members are already on the Scientific Advisory board for the Lifeboat Foundation and we look forward to working closely with them in the coming year.

Evidence for Some of the Burden of Fat Tissue to Result from Increased Levels of Cellular Senescence

Posted by in categories: health, life extension

More evidence to support that excess fat ages the body and is linked with inflammation and senescent cells.

Excess visceral fat tissue is very bad for long-term health. Being obese is by some measures as harmful as a smoking habit when it comes to remaining life expectancy. Even modest amounts of excess weight have a measurable negative impact on the future trajectory of health and longevity. There is an enormous mountain of data to support these points, ranging from large human studies to simple but compelling experiments in which the surgical removal of fat from mice leads to extended life spans. Unfortunately we evolved in an environment of scarcity and so find it a challenge to stay slim in an environment of plenty; this is a high class problem to have in exchange for an end to unavoidable famine and malnutrition, but a problem nonetheless.

One of the contributing causes of degenerative aging is the growing presence of senescent cells in tissues. While investigating the effects of changes in the amount of fat tissue in mice, researchers here find evidence to suggest that some portion of the damage done by fat tissue occurs because it hosts many more senescent cells than would otherwise be present in the body. These cells produce a mix of inflammatory signals, and may well be a sizable cause of the well-known link between visceral fat and increased inflammation. Chronic inflammation alone drives a faster progression of most of the common fatal age-related conditions, and that is without considering all of the other damage done due to the signaling produced by senescent cells.
