Mitochondrially Targeted Antioxidants as a Way to Suppress Cancer Metastasis

The process of metastasis is why malign cancers of all sorts turn out to be fatal in the end: their cells spread throughout the body to establish new tumors and outpace the ability of present treatments to keep up. The promise of the near future ... [Published Fight Aging! - 17 hours ago]

Alcor Working on Field Perfusion for Remote Cryonics Cases

The state of infrastructure technologies in the cryonics industry is improving slowly over time. Most organizations in the community are volunteer based, which puts a greater burden on the few professional groups to work on research and development. ... [Published Fight Aging! - Jul 29 2014]

Considering Mitochondrial DNA Deletions in Skeletal Muscle

The organelles known as mitochondria play the role of power plant in the cell, generating energy stores to power cellular operations. As for all cellular components, mitochondria are built of proteins derived from DNA blueprints, but unlike all other ... [Published Fight Aging! - Jul 29 2014]

Rapamycin and Its Effects on mTORC1 and mTORC2

The immunosuppressant compound rapamycin has been demonstrated to slow aging in mice, though with unpleasant side-effects, and some debate over whether this is in fact a slowing of aging or just a reduction in cancer incidence . The present consensus ... [Published Fight Aging! - Jul 28 2014]

More on Klotho and Neurodegeneration

High levels of the protein produced by the klotho gene are associated with longevity in mammals, and recently it has also been associated with greater cognitive performance . Here is another small piece of evidence to add to all that: Alzheimer's ... [Published Fight Aging! - Jul 28 2014]

Correlations in Dysfunction Abound in Aging

Aging is a global phenomenon, the spiraling consequences of underlying damage that accumulate in every organ and biological system of the body concurrently. Becoming damaged is a matter of wear and tear; it is a side-effect of the operation of metabolism ... [Published Fight Aging! - Jul 26 2014]

Immune Surveillance of Mitochondrial DNA Deletions?

Regular readers will know that mitochondrial DNA damage is thought to be an important contributing cause of aging. It can lead to dysfunctional mitochondria that overtake cells and turn them into exporters of damaging reactive compounds, harming ... [Published Fight Aging! - Jul 24 2014]

Quotes

"We believe that increasing Klotho levels with such compounds would improve the outcome for Alzheimer's patients, and if started early enough would prevent further deterioration. This potential treatment has implications for other neurodegenerative diseases such as > Parkinson's , Huntington's , ALS and brain trauma, as well."
"As a young researcher, I examined hundreds of patients and noticed that if an older person was walking slowly, there was a good chance that his cognitive tests were also abnormal. This gave me the idea that perhaps we could use this simple clinical sign - how fast someone walks - to predict who would develop dementia."
...did not exhibit improved motor function, whereas those given AAVshPTEN and salmon fibrin recovered forelimb use involving reaching and grasping. "The data suggest that the combination of PTEN deletion and salmon fibrin injection into the lesion can significantly enhance motor skills by enabling regenerative growth of corticospinal tract axons."
...immune-based therapies for cancers and other diseases might get effective results from adoptive transfer of small numbers of individual T cells. "In principle, one individual T cell can be enough to transfer effective and long-lasting protective immunity for a defined pathogen or tumor antigen to a patient. These results are extremely exciting and come at a time when immunotherapy is moving into the mainstream as a treatment for cancer and other diseases. The results provide strong experimental support for the concept that the efficacy and durability of T cell immunotherapy for infections and cancer may be improved by utilizing specific T cell subsets."
