Small molecules discovered to halt cellular aging
Scientists from Boston Children's Hospital identify potential drugs for treating telomere diseases, and maybe even aging.
Easy on the Calories, But Please Pass the Nutrients
As we age, we need fewer calories, but the same amounts of nutrients. Understanding this is key to healthy aging.
A master controller protein might reveal why females live longer
In the animal kingdom, most females live longer than males. But why? Scientists say a master controller protein might have provided females the resilience to aging.
Aging fits disease criteria used by World Health Organization
A new study in Mechanisms of Ageing and Development on March 9, 2020, describes how aging fits the criteria for a disease under the International Classification of Disease.
NMN anti-aging effect on MicroRNAs
NMN makes changes to micro ribonucleic acids (miRNAs), with evidence demonstrating this slows aging. This phenomenon is a promising topic for investigation of NMN use in humans . The changes in disease-gene miRNAs are predicted to epigenetically rejuvenate DNA expression.
