What to know about fasting, aging, the ‘longevity diet’ and when you should eat

Posted by in categories: food, life extension

University of Southern California scientist Valter Longo talks in this Q&A about fasting and the adoption of a “longevity diet.” A researcher focusing on intermittent fasting and aging, Longo advocates a plant-based diet and smart, strategic caloric restriction for a longer, healthier life.

Metformin Restores CNS Remyelination Capacity

Posted by in category: life extension

Neumann et al. demonstrate that aging renders adult oligodendrocyte progenitor cells unresponsive to pro-differentiation factors, which can be reversed both in vitro and in vivo by calorie restriction (CR) and the CR mimetic metformin.

Genetic differences in the immune system shape the microbiome

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics

Genetic differences in the immune system shape the collections of bacteria that colonize the digestive system, according to new research by scientists at the University of Chicago.

In carefully controlled experiments using populated with microbes from conventionally raised mice, the researchers showed that while the makeup of the microbial input largely determined the resulting of the recipients, between strains of mice played a role as well.

“When the input is standardized, you can compare mice of different genetic strains and see what these genetics do to the microbiome in recipient mice,” said microbiome researcher Alexander Chervonsky, MD, Ph.D., a senior author of the new study, published in Cell Reports. “This approach allowed us to tell whether there was a genetic influence, and indeed there is. So, the next question was what mechanisms are involved?”

Crispr’s Next Frontier Is In-Human Treatment, Co-Inventor Says

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics

As investors await results from the first U.S. clinical trials of the gene-editing system known as Crispr, scientists are focused on finding ways to administer it directly into humans, according to the technology’s co-inventor, Jennifer Doudna.

Right now, in studies using Crispr that have treated patients, researchers have had to extract their cells to be able to make edits to faulty DNA before infusing them back into the body for treatment. Being able to do precise edits directly inside humans, animals or plants could open the door to new applications, Doudna said.
