In a 2019 study entitled Dog Ownership and Survival, A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis, dog ownership has been linked with decreased cardiovascular risk. Recent reports have suggested an association of dog companionship with lower blood pressure levels, improved lipid profile, and diminished sympathetic responses to stress. However, it is unclear if dog ownership is associated […]
David Sinclair of Harvard University has studied aging and longevity for years and through a series of successful studies, has determined humans, in time, may defy the aging process with a boost to their genes at the cellular level.
Scientists at University of Cambridge say the results have far reaching implications for how we understand the aging process, and how we might develop much-needed treatments for age-related brain diseases.
A group of scientists from Skoltech, Moscow State University and Harvard University decided to fill this gap and identify crucial molecular processes associated with longevity. To do so, they looked at the effects of various lifespan-extending interventions on the activity of genes in a mouse, a commonly used model organism closely related to humans.
A new study published in Nature Metabolism finally reveals the answer to how NMN enters the cell in order to become NAD+ and that it does not need to convert into NR to do so. In the last few years, there has been considerable interest in restoring levels of the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) coenzyme […]
A new analysis of data on more than 900 Baltimore adults has linked stressful life experiences among middle-aged women — but not men — to greater memory decline in later life. The researchers say their findings add to evidence that stress hormones play an uneven gender role in brain health, and align with well-documented higher […]
“We performed a genome-wide association study of longevity-related phenotypes in individuals of European, East Asian and African American ancestry and identified the APOE and GPR78 loci to be associated with these phenotypes in our study. Moreover, our gene-level association analyses highlight a role for tissue-specific expression of genes at chromosome 5q13.3, 12q13.2, 17q21.31, and 19q13.32 […]
David Sinclair is among a group of researchers collaborating on a new nonprofit academy to promote aging research and drug discovery. “We’re generally in denial that, for most of the diseases that we get these days, the root cause is aging. I don’t know 10-year-olds that get Alzheimer’s disease or heart disease.”- David Sinclair The […]
‘Tickling’ the ear with a small electrical current appears to rebalance the autonomic nervous system for over-55s, potentially slowing down one of the effects of ageing, according to new research at the University of Leeds. The new study explores the impact the vagus nerve has on age. The therapy, called transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation, delivers […]
