Spermidine may halt aging by preserving telomere length

Researchers show that the natural autophagy-inducing compound spermidine may protect mice from age-related disorders by preventing telomere erosion. Aging is a natural process characterised by...

The trillion dollar upside to longevity

New economic model estimates that targeting aging has larger economic gains than eradicating individual diseases: time for a policy pivot? Although life expectancy has increased...

Predicting longevity using polygenic risk scores

Health and disease prediction scores could become a routine personal genomics risk prediction method for lifelong health planning, disease prevention and patient stratification. Many commonly...

Rise of the superagers – sharp minds and youthful cognition

Superagers retain exceptional memory performance, surpassing the performance of individuals aged 20 years younger. Age represents a risk for cognitive decline, that increases with advanced...

Joined-up thinking and the hallmarks of aging

A recent article provides an integrative view of the hallmarks of aging and the extensive network linking them: time to join-up our thinking? Mitochondria are...

Proteostasis as a therapeutic target in age-related neurodegeneration

A new study identifies proteostasis decline as a hallmark of human cellular aging and suggests that restoring protein homeostasis may hold a promise for the...

Using senolytics to treat fibrosis shows promise

Increasing evidence shows a direct link between fibrosis in the extracellular matrix and cellular senescence. Mounting evidence suggests a direct link between cellular senescence...

Will rapamycin overtake metformin as a Longevity therapy?

Animal and human trials progress development of rapamycin as an anti-aging therapy. The development of drugs to counteract the aging process is rapidly evolving and...

NAD-boosting may stabilise telomeres to slow aging

A recent study shows that nicotinamide riboside helps alleviate telomere dysfunction in human cells. The length of telomeres decreases with age, and telomere dysfunction...
