Fetal Stem Cells and Muscle Regeneration

The types of stem cell that can be extracted from accessible fetal tissues such as the umbilical cord and amniotic fluid are somewhat different to both adult stem cells and embryonic stem cells . Ultimately all of these various sources will go ... [Published Fight Aging! - 20 hours ago]

A Master Regulator of the Heat Shock Response

The heat shock response is an important process in cell maintenance, a coordinated set of mechanisms that recycle damaged proteins, activated by conditions likely to cause that damage. It is not only triggered by heat, but also by a variety of other ... [Published Fight Aging! - Sep 17 2014]

AGE Levels Associate with Bone Fracture Risk in Aging

Our bones become dangerously weak with advancing age. A lot of this stems from a growing failure of maintenance processes and an imbalance in the bone remodeling that constantly takes place - too much bone removal, and not enough creation. In addition, ... [Published Fight Aging! - Sep 17 2014]

New Organ Liver Prize: First Contending Teams Announced

The New Organ initiative aims to greatly speed progress towards the tissue engineering of patient-matched organs as needed: a vision of no more waiting, no more transplant rejection, and a much lower cost of organ renewal, all leading to a far greater ... [Published Fight Aging! - Sep 16 2014]

Heat Shock Proteins and Neurodegeneration

Heat shock proteins are one portion of an array of cellular housekeeping and repair mechanisms that swing into action in response to circumstances that cause elevated levels of damage to protein machinery: heat, exercise, toxins, and so forth. Some ... [Published Fight Aging! - Sep 16 2014]

A Glance at Silicon Valley Longevity Initiatives

Here is a little more on some of the initiatives arising in the Bay Area venture and technology communities: the SENS Research Foundation , Calico Labs , and the Palo Alto Longevity Prize . As I pointed out a few days back, it's not just a matter ... [Published Fight Aging! - Sep 16 2014]

Boosted Microglial Function as an Alzheimer's Therapy

The immune system is a very efficient mechanism for certain types of task, if it can just be harnessed and put to work. Left to its own devices throughout most of a life span it can effectively destroy misbehaving cells, remove some types of harmful ... [Published Fight Aging! - Sep 15 2014]

Effects of Lifestyle or Effects of Aging?

There is a distinction to be drawn between primary and secondary aging , which at this time we might consider as the division between the things you can't yet do anything about on the one hand versus the things can you do something about on the other. ... [Published Fight Aging! - Sep 15 2014]

Attempts to Reduce Systematic Inflammation in Aging

Chronic inflammation increases with aging due to a progressive dysfunction of the immune system : it is overactive but yet ineffective, like a failing engine running hot. Inflammation is a necessary part of the immune response, but if it is turned ... [Published Fight Aging! - Sep 15 2014]

Near Term Outcomes in Healthcare Costs Resulting from Piecemeal Progress Towards a Cure for Aging

The cure for aging is often naively envisaged as a single treatment, but this won't be the case in reality. Aging is caused by a variety of distinct parallel processes all running at the same time, producing forms of damage that accumulate in and between ... [Published Fight Aging! - Sep 12 2014]

Quotes

...HSPs enable cancer cells to grow and proliferate, depleting these cells of HSPs could sensitize tumors to chemotherapy and radiation therapies . "It's a bit early, but we think that eventually we could design small-molecule activators and inhibitors that tweak the heat shock response. eEF1A1 controls every single step of the heat shock response simultaneously."
New Organ Founder and Methuselah CEO David Gobel: "We are gratified to see the initial interest in the Liver Prize. We are doing this because of the millions who need new organs. Organ disease, and the associated organ shortage, represents one of the greatest medical challenges that can be solved. A scientific foundation has been built over the last 15 years to pursue the vision of organs on demand. It's time for a significant societal commitment to that vision."
Some scientists in Palo Alto are offering a $1 million prize to anyone who can end aging. "Based on the rapid rate of biomedical breakthroughs, we believe the question is not if we can crack the aging code, but when will it happen." The Palo Alto Prize is also working with a number of angel investors, venture capital firms, corporate venture arms, institutions and private foundations...
...cells because previous testing had shown it to be effective at triggering an immune response in both mice and humans, with very few side effects. "Now that we have shown that we can influence microglial function in Alzheimer's disease, to both prevent and repair tau-damaged brain tissue, then it is highly plausible that our treatment approach could also be applied to other neurodegenerative diseases tied to aging."
