Young Americans are dying in rising numbers because of drugs, alcohol and suicide, according to new federal data. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) issued its annual comprehensive health and mortality report, which analyzes trends in death rates by cause and demographic. Drugs, alcohol and suicide, the report says, have contributed to the first drops in U.S. life expectancy since 1993. While U.S. life expectancy rose from 77.8 to 78.6 years between 2006 and 2016, the trend reversed during the end of the decade, leading to a 0.3-year decline between 2014 and ...

“The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes.” – Frank Lloyd Wright While some people may think that the older you get, the worse your quality of life and well-being becomes. Yet, there are growing numbers of men and women who may now have some silver or gray strands of hair and other age-related signs who’ll tell you they’ve never felt happier. They greet each day with hope and enthusiasm, feeling confident, purposeful, grateful and filled with joy. This, despite an assortment of ailments, frailties, medical conditions and gradual slowing down. How can it be? Does this older generatio...

In this study, we found that TXNIP deficiency induces accelerated senescent phenotypes of mouse embryonic fibroblast (MEF) cells under high glucose condition and that the induction of cellular ROS or AKT activation is critical for cellular senescence. Our results also revealed that TXNIP inhibits AKT activity by a direct interaction, which is upregulated by high glucose and H2O2 treatment. In addition, TXNIP knockout mice exhibited an increase in glucose uptake and aging-associated phenotypes including a decrease in energy metabolism and induction of cellular senescence and aging-associated gene expression. We propose that...

Research into cellular senescence is at present one of the most exciting areas of the science of aging, as it is in this part of the scientific community that the first real, actual, legitimate rejuvenation therapies were discovered. These senolytic treatments, capable of selectively destroying senescent cells, are now in the process of verification in human trials. They offer the possibility of significant reversal of all inflammatory age-related disease, to a far greater degree than can be offered by any past therapy: osteoporosis; the fibrosis that drives dysfunction of the lung, heart, and kidney; neurodegenerative con...

The deadly truth about cancer in the fire service will be front and center September 15 as fire fighters and paramedics from across the United States and Canada join grieving families at the IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial in Colorado Springs, Colorado, to honor those who have lost their lives in the line of duty.   The names of 271 fire fighters who have died in the line of duty from trauma or occupational illness will be etched on to the granite Wall of Honor. The risk of traumatic death in the fire scene has declined over the years – in large part due to the International Association of Fire Fighters’...

Senolytic treatments selectively destroy senescent cells, and several different approaches have been shown to produce some degree of rejuvenation in mice: reversal of measures of aging; reversal of the progression of specific age-related conditions; extension of life span. Most of these initial senolytics are repurposed pharmaceuticals drawn from cancer research databases, with the exceptions being the engineered peptide FOXO4-DRI, the suicide gene therapy developed by Oisin Biotechnologies, and SIWA Therapeutics' immunotherapy. Where animal study data has been published, the results produced by these varied senolytics are...

Depression is a seriously disabling public health problem with very high world-wide prevalence (Kessler  et al., 2003). This psychiatric disease is characterized by the presence of low mood, anhedonia, insomnia, loss of appetite, inattention, and even suicidal ideation/action (Hamet, 2005). Moreover, this disorder is independently associated with increased risk of mortality in diabetes, cardiovascul ar disease, and cancer (van Dooren et al., 2013; Barefoot and Schroll, 1996; Sherrill et al., 2017).
