Curing Death by Curing Disease, Cancer & Aging

Main reason for lifespan variability between races not cause of death (12/20/2014)

Eliminating health disparities between races is a goal of many groups and organizations, but a team of sociologists suggests that finding the reasons for the differences in the timing of black and white deaths may be trickier than once thought. ...> Full Article


Amount of mitochondrial DNA predicts frailty and mortality (12/19/2014)

Amount of mitochondrial DNA predicts frailty and mortalityNew research from The Johns Hopkins University suggests that the amount of mitochondrial DNA, mtDNA, found in peoples' blood directly relates to how frail they are medically. This DNA may prove to be a useful predictor of overall risk of frailty and death from any cause 10 to 15 years before symptoms appear. ...> Full Article


Too much, too little, just right (12/18/2014)

Scientists have long known the p53 protein suppresses tumors. However, a recent animal study by UC Davis researchers has uncovered a complicated relationship between p53 and another protein, Rbm38, highlighting how the body calibrates protein levels. ...> Full Article


How fast you age depends on your parents (12/16/2014)

How fast you age depends on your parentsIn the hunt for better knowledge on the aging process, researchers from Lund University have now enlisted the help of small birds. A new study investigates various factors which affect whether chicks are born with long or short chromosome ends, called telomeres. ...> Full Article


Research finds clue to why females live longer than males (12/4/2014)

A study from the University of Exeter has found that male flies die earlier than their female counterparts when forced to evolve with the pressures of mate competition and juvenile survival. The results could help researchers understand the mechanisms involved in aging. ...> Full Article


The role DNA methylation plays in aging cells (11/21/2014)

Although every person's DNA remains the same throughout their lives, scientists know that it functions differently at different ages. ...> Full Article


Metabolic 'reprogramming' by the p53 gene family leads to tumor regression (11/20/2014)

Metabolic 'reprogramming' by the p53 gene family leads to tumor regressionScientists have found that altering members of the p53 gene family, known as tumor suppressor genes, causes rapid regression of tumors that are deficient in or totally missing p53. ...> Full Article


Scientists uncover mechanism that controls the fitness of cells, impacting aging and disease (11/17/2014)

Scientists uncover mechanism that controls the fitness of cells, impacting aging and diseaseA novel looping mechanism that involves the end caps of DNA may help explain the aging of cells and how they initiate and transmit disease, according to new research from UT Southwestern Medical Center cell biologists. ...> Full Article


High-fat diet postponing brain aging (11/10/2014)

New Danish-led research suggests that signs of brain aging can be postponed in mice if placed on a high-fat diet. In the long term, this opens the possibility of treatment of children suffering from premature aging and patients with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. The research project is headed by the Center for Healthy Aging, University of Copenhagen and the National Institute of Health. ...> Full Article


Scientists develop new way to study how human cells become immortal, a crucial precursor to cancer (11/9/2014)

Berkeley Lab scientists have developed a new method that can easily create immortal human mammary epithelial cells. The cells could greatly facilitate the examination of cell immortalization as it actually occurs during cancer progression. ...> Full Article


Sense of meaning and purpose in life linked to longer lifespan (11/8/2014)

A University College London-led study of 9,050 English people with an average age of 65 found that the people with the greatest well-being were 30 percent less likely to die during the average eight and a half year follow-up period than those with the least well-being. ...> Full Article


Cause of aging remains elusive (10/24/2014)

Cause of aging remains elusiveA report by Chinese researchers in the journal Nature a few months ago was a small sensation: they appeared to have found the cause for why organisms age. An international team of scientists, headed by the University of Bonn, has now refuted a basic assumption of the Nature article. The reasons for aging thus remain elusive. ...> Full Article


Sugared soda consumption, cell aging associated in new study (10/23/2014)

Sugar-sweetened soda consumption might promote disease independently from its role in obesity, according to UC San Francisco researchers who found in a new study that drinking sugary drinks was associated with cell aging. ...> Full Article


Treatments to slow aging and stymie chronic disease in older adults on the horizon (10/2/2014)

The founder of the nonprofit Alliance for Aging Research Dan Perry predicts chronic health problems of older adults will be treated in the near future by medical treatments that slow aging itself, and offered remarks on this topic at the MipTec Conference on health-care innovation, a major gathering of pharmaceutical executives in Basel, Switzerland, on Sept. 24, organized by the Biogerontology Research Foundation. ...> Full Article


Scientists discover an on-off switch for aging cells (9/29/2014)

Scientists discover an on-off switch for aging cellsScientists at the Salk Institute have discovered an on-and-off 'switch' in cells that may hold the key to healthy aging. This switch points to a way to encourage healthy cells to keep dividing and generating, for example, new lung or liver tissue, even in old age. ...> Full Article
