Regenerative Reprogramming to Beat Aging Say Researchers

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics, life extension

Summary: Regenerative reprogramming of the body with injections could turn back the clock in our organs, say scientists in a Jan 2018 report. Prematurely aged mice lived 30% longer after Salk Institute researchers genetically reprogrammed their cells while still in the body. [This article first appeared on the website LongevityFacts.com.

Imagine a time in the future when the doctor gives you the bad news: you need a heart transplant. In the past, this would be an expensive and drastic procedure. Instead, the doctor gives you an injection that rejuvenates your heart. In time, your heart eventually mends itself, reverting to the strength and vigor of your youth.

The dream is closer to reality than you think, thanks to a novel technique developed by a team researchers headed by Juan Carlos Izpisua Belmonte at the Salk Institute in La Jolla.

Theoretical physicists manipulate light with nanoscale objects

Posted by in categories: nanotechnology, physics

Credit: University of New Mexico For years, scientists have long wrestled with the control and manipulation of light, a long-standing scientific ambition with major implications for the development of technology. With the growth in nanophotonics, scientists are making gains faster than ever exploiting structures with dimensions comparable to the wavelength of light. Scientists at The University of New Mexico studying the field of nanophotonics are developing new perspectives never seen before through their research. In turn, the understanding of these theoretical concepts is enabling physic…

Promising Drug Combo Nearly Halves Stroke Risk Says New Report

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Summary: A new report provides good news for warding off stroke and hardening of the arteries, two diseases of aging. Combining blood-pressure-lowering drugs with cholesterol-lowering medications reduced first-time strokes by 44%, according to a report by the AHA/ASA. [This article first appeared on the website LongevityFacts.com. Author: Brady Hartman. ]

Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the US and a disease of aging that grows more prevalent with each birthday.

Now, a report says a new drug regimen promises to cut that risk nearly in half.
