Amateur Religious Engineering and Longevity Science

There exists a very long history of people starting explicitly religious movements to achieve secular goals in the mundane world. A very broad range of such ventures can be found even in recent history, in this apostate age of comparatively weak and ... [Published Fight Aging! - Aug 29 2014]

The Prospects for Therapies and Enhancements via Magnetic Stimulation of the Brain

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a fascinating field of study in which it is clearly possible to affect the brain, but researchers are still in the comparatively early stages of finding out how to reliably produce and measure useful end results. ... [Published Fight Aging! - Aug 29 2014]

Nasal Cartilage Cells Can Replace Joint Cartilage

Cartilage regeneration and tissue engineering has proven more difficult than initially expected. It is a tissue with a deceptively complex structure, in which important mechanical properties necessary to its load-bearing role are derived from the details ... [Published Fight Aging! - Aug 29 2014]

João Pedro de Magalhães in Rejuvenation Research

João Pedro de Magalhães is one of the few rising notables in the aging research community who has, from day one of his career, been absolutely and openly in favor of radical life extension through progress in medical science. To his eyes, as mine, ... [Published Fight Aging! - Aug 29 2014]

A Potential Source of Cardiac Stem Cells

Many research groups in the stem cell field are engaged in a search for sources of useful tissue-specific cells in the body, developing means of identification and isolation. This runs in parallel with efforts to reprogram more easily obtained cells, ... [Published Fight Aging! - Aug 28 2014]

Liver ATF4 Upregulation Common to Many of the Reliable Means of Slowing Aging in Mice

There are a score or more ways to reliably slow aging in mice , methods that include a few classes of drug, various single gene alterations, and calorie restriction . The most exceptional of these methods extends life by 60% or so, but most are in ... [Published Fight Aging! - Aug 27 2014]

Identifying Tissue Weakness Before Injury

This is an interesting technology demonstration that suggests an obvious pairing with regenerative treatments based on the use of stem cells or similar means to spur tissue repair. With regular scans it might be possible to preempt many instances of ... [Published Fight Aging! - Aug 27 2014]

Advocating Arterial Destiffening to Treat Cardiovascular Disease

It is always good to see more scientists come around to the SENS viewpoint of damage repair as the best treatment for age-related disease. Addressing root causes is a much better approach than the current prevalent paradigm of trying to adapt failing ... [Published Fight Aging! - Aug 27 2014]

Apolipoprotein B Variants and Exceptional Human Longevity

Studies of human longevity-associated genes produce results that tend to be hard to replicate. The effects are individually tiny and vary widely between study populations, indicating a complex web of influences. Only a few genes stand out as having small ... [Published Fight Aging! - Aug 26 2014]

Everything Looks the Same in the Distance

One of the challenges we face in directing fund and attention to the most promising research into human longevity, rather than efforts that are doomed from the start to achieve no meaningful near term gains, is that from the distance of unfamiliarity ... [Published Fight Aging! - Aug 26 2014]

Quotes

...preferred direction for medicine if we seek true prevention and cure of age-related loss of function, but as for many such things, one has to ask "why not see whether or not this can be applied all the time, for everyone?"
...Coronary artery disease would impact this niche. "Our study suggests that coronary artery disease could lead to heartheart failure not only by blocking the arteries and causing heart attacks, but also by affecting the way the heart is maintained and regenerated."
...on maintaining bone density, muscle mass, ligament and tendon function, and cartilage volume are keys to optimal physical function and health. "Regimens must be individualized for older adults according to their baseline level of conditioning and disability, and be instituted gradually and safely, particularly for elderly and poorly conditioned adults." To improve fitness levels and minimize bone and joint health decline, when safely allowable, patients should be encouraged to continually exceed the...
...engineering fundamentals with image-analysis techniques to create the algorithms, which were tested in different materials and in animal models . "The new algorithm allowed us to find the places where the tears were beginning to form and to track them as they extended. Older algorithms are not as good at finding and tracking localized strains as the material stretches."
