Telomeres

Inflammaging – could ibuprofen be the answer?

Neurodegenerative disease is associated with age-related chronic, low grade inflammation, but studies suggest that this could be reversed with over the counter NSAIDs. In an...

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...

Telomere length variations in tissue have implications for Longevity

Scientists from the University of Chicago Medical Center show that the rate of telomere shortening during aging is determined by the tissue type, genetic...

Exclusive interview: Professor Richard Faragher and cellular senescence

With senolytics driving investor interest in the Longevity sector, we speak to Professor Richard Faragher about resveratrol and the potential for rejuvenation of senescent...

Telomeres – it’s not the end of the line

Sigh of relief as new study identifies possible drug treatments for telomere diseases – are we finally edging closing to unlocking the potential of...

Longevity2020: Day 5 Recap

On Friday, the Longevity2020 online conference drew to a close, and the final day explored what people can be doing today to address their...

Longevity2020: Day 2 recap

Yesterday at Longevity2020 was all about rejuvenation therapies, bringing together some of the world’s leading luminaries in the fight against aging. Things kicked off with...

Global investment consortium slated to back Telocyte into Phase 1

Telomerase therapy ready for human Alzheimer’s trials. “There have been more than 400 registered trials for Alzheimer's and, by global consensus, every single one has...

Telomeres on repeat to inhibit inflamm-aging

Coming around again – Italian team hopes to use repeated nucleobases to delay aging through extending telomeres. Inflammation is a double-edged sword; while it is necessary...

Chinese medicine plant activates telomerase

A new study shows that certain nutrients and natural compounds can act as potent telomerase activators has implications for Longevity and the development of...

Exclusive interview: The dynamics of telomeres

Can biological markers predict brain age? From measuring telomeres to computational approaches, promising research is beginning to find out just how it can be...

Correlation between telomere length and brain age

A study by researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences has shown that when telomeres change in length, changes...

Pay-to-play age reduction has $1m price tag

This is the world's first IRB-approved clinical trial aimed at reversing aging by at least 20 years; it is also the world's most expensive...

Telomeres extend lifespan without genetic mods

The Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) have discovered a way for telomeres to extend the lifespan of mice without genetic modification. Scientists have been...

Telomere shortening tied to structural changes in the brain

Max Planck researchers find changes across mere months, that are possibly reversed by brain training by telomore shortening.  The tips of our chromosomes, known as...

New study reveals Telomerase in adult cells slows aging

Maryland and NIH researchers discover previously unknown function in enzyme, that slows cell aging. In a discovery that profoundly challenges our understanding of a vital...

Discovery shows telomere-shortening rate is a vital predictor

Researchers have found a way to predict species lifespan with telomere-shortening, could it lead to better individual biomarkers? There are many different factors that contribute...

New treatment stalls cellular aging and promotes rejuvination

University of Exeter team make senescent cells look younger and begin to divide while exhibiting longer telomeres to reduce cellular aging. Resveratrol is an antioxidant...

Stanford anouces significant telomere research

New research at Stanford shows telomere extension can delay aging and support new therapies for heart disease and diabetes. Aging doesn't just have one cause,...

Scientists link telomeres with age-related disease

Discovery on telomere shorening provides fresh insights into age-related diseases, but researchers advocate caution. The tips of our chromosomes, known as telomeres, shorten as we...
