ANIMATION Research from APC Microbiome Ireland (APC) at University College Cork (UCC) published on August 9, 2021, in the leading international scientific journal Nature Aging introduces a novel approach to reverse aspects of aging-related deterioration in the brain and cognitive function via the microbes in the gut. As our population ages, one […]

Credit: Shamir Medical Center Study finds hyperbaric oxygen treatments halt the aging of blood cells and reverses the aging process. A new study from Tel Aviv University (TAU) and the Shamir Medical Center in Israel indicates that hyperbaric oxygen treatments (HBOT) in healthy aging adults can stop the aging of […]

ANIMATION Proof-of-concept study represents first successful attempt to reverse the aging clock in animals through epigenetic reprogramming. Scientists turned on embryonic genes to reprogram cells of mouse retinas. Approach reversed glaucoma-induced eye damage in animals. Approach also restored age-related vision loss in elderly mice. Work spells promise for using same […]

Turning off a newly identified enzyme could reverse a natural aging process in cells. Research findings by a KAIST team provide insight into the complex mechanism of cellular senescence and present a potential therapeutic strategy for reducing age-related diseases associated with the accumulation of senescent cells. Simulations that model molecular interactions have […]

“As we age, it’s harder to have a get-up-and-go attitude toward things,” says study author Ann Graybiel. Credit: Christine Daniloff, MIT Research on mice suggests aging affects a brain circuit critical for learning to make some types of decisions. As people age, they often lose their motivation to learn new […]

Old human cells return to a more youthful and vigorous state after being induced to briefly express a panel of proteins involved in embryonic development, according to a new study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The researchers also found that elderly mice regained youthful strength after […]
