Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Mumbai: A five-year-old child from Majalgaon village in Beed, who may soon undergo a genital reconstruction surgery, was admitted to St George Hospital on Thursday. Parents of Aiman Khan, who was raised as a girl, have now made her Aadhaar number with the new male identity as Aman.

Medical superintendent Dr. Madhukar Gaikwad said the child’s sonography was carried out on Thursday. “We will be doing all the required medical examinations and then schedule the surgery.” The child’s karyotype study, which determines chromosomes, shows the presence of male XY chromosomes.

Plastic surgeon Dr. Rajat Kapoor, who evaluated the minor, has found the presence of testes, a male reproductive organ, and absence of female internal organs. He said the genitalia looks like that of a female due to underdevelopment.

ANA and JAXA Partner to Create a New Space Industry Centered Around Real-World Avatars

Posted by in categories: business, economics, space travel

TOKYO, Sept. 6, 2018 (ANA HD/JAXA PR) — ANA HOLDINGS INC. (hereinafter ANA HD) and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency ( JAXA ) are proud to announce the launch of “AVATAR X,” a multi-phased program to revolutionize space exploration and development using real-world Avatars (*1).

AVATAR X aims to capitalize on the growing space-based economy by accelerating development of real-world Avatars that will enable humans to remotely build camps on the Moon, support long-term space missions and further explore space from afar.

AVATAR X is part of “ANA’s AVATAR Vision (*2),” a breakthrough endeavor to advance and pioneer real-world Avatar technologies, and JAXA ‘s new research and development program “J-SPARC” ( JAXA Space Innovation through Partnership and Co-creation). Together with a growing list of public and private partners, AVATAR X hopes to catalyze new space-based businesses that will provide key services and an unprecedented level of access to space.

A Review of Cellular Senescence and Senolytics

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Today, we want to point out a new publication that dives into the world of senolytics, which are drugs or therapies that seek and destroy harmful non-dividing cells that resist the programmed cell death known as apoptosis.

These cells linger in the body, and, as we age, more and more of them accumulate and contribute to the chronic age-related inflammation known as “inflammaging” while reducing tissue regeneration and repair and contributing to the development of various age-related diseases.

One approach to dealing with these problem cells is to tip them over the edge and cause them to self-destruct, thus removing them and the inflammation they cause. A new class of drugs known as senolytics was discovered a few years ago, and the interest in developing them to potentially combat age-related diseases has been growing rapidly.
