Curing Death by Curing Disease, Cancer & Aging

Strategy proposed for preventing diseases of aging (7/25/2014)

Strategy proposed for preventing diseases of agingResearchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and elsewhere argue that medicine focuses too much on fighting diseases individually instead of concentrating on interventions that prevent multiple chronic diseases and extend healthy lifespan. They call for moving forward with strategies that have been shown to delay aging in animals. In addition to promoting a healthy diet and regular exercise, these strategies include manipulating molecular pathways that slow aging and promote healthy longevity. ...> Full Article


Scientists identify gene that plays a surprising role in combating aging (7/22/2014)

Scientists identify gene that plays a surprising role in combating agingScientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have found in animal models that a single gene plays a surprising role in aging that can be detected early in development, a discovery that could point toward the possibility of one day using therapeutics, even some commonly used ones, to manipulate the aging process itself. ...> Full Article


Preconceptional factors in the prediction of fertility and the reproductive lifespan (7/9/2014)

A project in Denmark whose aim is to assess the reliability of preconceptional lifestyle and biological factors as predictors of fertility has found a pronounced effect of the contraceptive pill on markers used to assess 'ovarian reserve,' a predictor of future reproductive lifespan. ...> Full Article


Reproduction later in life is a marker for longevity in women (7/1/2014)

Women who are able to naturally have children later in life tend to live longer and the genetic variants that allow them to do so might also facilitate exceptionally long life spans, according to a Boston University School of Medicine study. ...> Full Article


Strict diet suspends development, doubles lifespan of worms (6/23/2014)

Strict diet suspends development, doubles lifespan of wormsResearchers at Duke University found that taking food away from C. elegans triggers a state of arrested development: while the organism continues to wriggle about, foraging for food, its cells and organs are suspended in an ageless, quiescent state. When food becomes plentiful again, the worm develops as planned, but can live twice as long as normal. ...> Full Article


Toxins in the environment might make you older than your years (5/29/2014)

Why are some 75-year-olds downright spry while others can barely get around? Part of the explanation, say researchers writing in the Cell Press journal Trends in Molecular Medicine on May 28, is differences from one person to the next in exposure to harmful substances in the environment, chemicals such as benzene, cigarette smoke, and even stress. ...> Full Article


Blocking pain receptors extends lifespan, boosts metabolism in mice (5/27/2014)

Chronic pain is known to shorten lifespan, and pain tends to increase with age. But is there a relationship between pain and longevity? UC Berkeley and Salk researchers have found that mice lacking the capsaicin pain receptor live around 14 percent longer than other mice, and they retain a more youthful metabolism as well. Receptor blockers could not only relieve pain, but increase lifespan, improve metabolic health and help diabetics and the obese. ...> Full Article


Taste test: Could sense of taste affect length of life? (5/20/2014)

Researchers find a link between taste and aging in fruit flies. ...> Full Article


Scientists develop algorithm for anti-aging remedy search (5/17/2014)

MIPT scientists have provided an algorithm which can help in the search for aging-suppressing drugs. The researchers, whose work is published in Frontiers in Genetics magazine, have compared gene expression in young and elderly patients' cells. ...> Full Article


Complex interactions may matter most for longevity (5/16/2014)

Complex interactions may matter most for longevityA new study of the biology of aging shows that complex interactions among diet, mitochondrial DNA and nuclear DNA appear to influence lifespan at least as much as single factors alone. The findings may help scientists better understand the underlying mechanisms of aging and explain why studies of single factors sometimes produce contradictory results. ...> Full Article


A new tool to measure the speed of aging (5/11/2014)

A physical test for measuring age shows wide differences between the rates of aging among different population groups, according to new research by demographers at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis. ...> Full Article


Yeast study identifies novel longevity pathway (5/10/2014)

A Penn study identifies a new molecular circuit that controls longevity in yeast and more complex organisms and suggests a therapeutic intervention that could mimic the lifespan-enhancing effect of caloric restriction, no dietary restrictions necessary. ...> Full Article


What doesn't kill you may make you live longer (5/9/2014)

What doesn't kill you may make you live longerWhat is the secret to aging more slowly and living longer? Not antioxidants, apparently. Now, researchers at McGill University have taken this finding a step further by showing how free radicals promote longevity in an experimental model organism, the roundworm C. elegans. Surprisingly, the team discovered that free radicals -- also known as oxidants -- act on a molecular mechanism that, in other circumstances, tells a cell to kill itself. ...> Full Article


Molecular switches age-related memory decline? Genetic variant protect against brain aging (5/8/2014)

Even among the healthiest individuals, memory and cognitive abilities decline with age. This aspect of normal aging can affect an individual's quality of life and capability to live independently but the rate of decline is variable across individuals. There are many factors that can influence this trajectory, but perhaps none more importantly than genetics. ...> Full Article


Scientists take steps to unlock the secrets to the fountain of youth (5/6/2014)

Scientists take steps to unlock the secrets to the fountain of youthASU scientists, together with collaborators from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Shanghai, have published today, in Nature Structural and Molecular Biology, a first of its kind atomic level look at the enzyme telomerase that may unlock the secrets to the fountain of youth. ...> Full Article
