Healthy menopausal women carrying a well-known genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease showed measurable signs of accelerated biological aging, a new study has found. However, in carriers who started hormone therapy at menopause and remained on that therapy, this acceleration was absent, the researchers said. Hormone therapy for non-carriers of the risk factor, a gene variant called ApoE4, had no protective effect on their biological aging. "This shows that ApoE4 is contributing to...

Mice with mitochondrial mutation live longer, have less fat If findings of a new study in mice are any indication, it might be possible to fine-tune cellular powerhouses called mitochondria, tweaking one aspect to increase insulin sensitivity, reduce body and fat mass, and even extend life. Exploiting this target could one day lead to novel treatments for type 2 diabetes – an endocrine system disease that affects 8 percent of the U.S. population. The research also points to promising...

Stem Cell 100 was developed to rejuvenate the human body and slow the aging process. It helps people feel better, look younger and improve their health. During the aging process cells lose function. Everyone has adult stem cells to regenerate damaged and old tissues, but those also are aging. Stem Cell 100 helps rejuvenate adult stem cells and provide support for the telomeres at the ends of chromosomes. Lakewood, Colorado (PRWEB) December 31, 2012 Children are protected from most of the...

Cell aging, or cellular senescence, has an important role in the natural physiological response to tumor development. Activated oncogenes are able to induce senescence, and recent findings have suggested that oncogene-induced senescence (OIS) could play a key role in future cancer therapy. Researchers have now identified a previously unknown mechanism in the regulation of OIS. This study is published online in advance of the January issue of The American Journal of Pathology. In many types...
