The Hallmarks of Aging

The Hallmarks of Aging
Aging is characterized by a progressive loss of physiological integrity, leading to impaired function and increased vulnerability to death. This deterioration is the primary risk factor for major human pathologies, including cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, and neurodegenerative diseases. Aging research has experienced an unprecedented advance over recent years, particularly with the discovery that the rate of aging is controlled, at least to some extent, by genetic pathways and bioch...

Common antioxidant could slow symptoms of aging in human skin
New work suggests that a common, inexpensive and safe chemical could slow the aging of human skin. The researchers found evidence that the chemical -- an antioxidant called methylene blue -- could slow or reverse several well-known signs of aging when tested in cultured human skin cells and simulated skin tissue.

Texas May Be First To Allow Stem Cell Therapies For Desperate Patients
A bill may soon grant Texans greater access to unapproved but promising stem cell therapies, Stat News reports. Its passage would make Texas the first state to back the technology, which has not been approved by federal regulators and many experts consider risky.

New hair growth mechanism discovered

New hair growth mechanism discovered
Regulatory T cells (Tregs; pronounced 'tee-regs'), a type of immune cell generally associated with controlling inflammation, directly trigger stem cells in the skin to promote healthy hair growth, researchers have discovered. Without these immune cells as partners, the researchers found, the stem cells cannot regenerate hair follicles, leading to baldness.

3D cell-printing 'Biopen' successfully tested on sheep could be 'game changer' in preventing osteoarthritis
A team from the Aikenhead Centre for Medical Discovery at St Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia has successfully tested its innovative “Biopen.” The 3D bioprinting pen, which can be filled with stem cell hydrogel ink cartridges, was used to repair a sheep’s knee.
