Fight Aging! Newsletter, December 3rd 2018

This article, however, is more of a commentary on high level strategy and the effects of regulation, coupled with a desire to forge ahead rather than hold back in the matter of treating aging, thus I concur with much more of what is said than is usually the case. For decades, one of the most debated questions in gerontology was whether aging is a disease or the norm. At present, excellent reasoning suggests aging should be defined as a disease - indeed, aging has been referred to as "normal disease." Aging is the sum of all age-related diseases and this sum is the best biomarker of aging. Aging and its diseases are inseparable, as these diseases are manifestations of aging. What then is aging without diseases, so called "healthy" aging. "Healthy" aging has been called subclinical aging, slow aging, or decelerated aging, during which diseases are at the pre-disease or even pre-pre-disease stage. Diseases will spring up eventually. "Healthy" aging is a pre-disease state in which asymptomatic abnormalities have not yet reached the artificial definitions of diseases such as hypertension or diabetes. Instead of healthy aging, we could use the terms pre-disease aging or decelerated aging. Currently, the term healthspan lacks clarity and precision especially in animals. Although the duration of healthspan depends on arbitrary criteria and subjective self-rating, it is a useful abstraction. In theory, a treatment that slo...

Novotny, Bing Peng, Liangli Yu, Pei ChenAbstractBroccoli is a popular brassica vegetable and its consumption may decrease the occurrence of cancer in certain populations. To gain insight into the metabolites that may induce physiological responses to broccoli intake, a non-targeted metabolomic approach and a targeted approach for analysis of glucosinolate metabolites were developed using high resolution accurate mass spectrometry. A human study was conducted in which 6 subjects consumed a single meal ...

CONCLUSION: In procedures performed using ICA distal filtering CPD systems, RAO as a complication of CAS (performed for severe stenosis) showed a relationship to ECA-supplied OA. For older patients, simultaneous use of ICA-ECA CPDs might help prevent such complications. PMID: 31606959 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 13 October 2019Source: Advances in Biological RegulationAuthor(s): Veronica Balatti, Carlo M. CroceAbstractWe established that loss of miR-15a/16–1 genes on chromosome 13q14 is the most common alteration in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) and that miR-15/16 are crucial negative regulator of BCL-2, an antiapoptotic gene overexpressed in most CLLs and in many other malignancies. We have also shown that miR-15/16 target ROR1, a cell surface receptor for Wnt5a which can enhance growth/survival of CLL cells. Interestingly, ROR1 is expressed by many cancers, but not by normal adult tis...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the circadian profile of the vasorelaxing substances calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs) and the vasconstrictive agent endothelin-1 (ET1) and the daily rhythms of cardiac hemodynamic indices (CHI) and baroreflex (BRS) in Wistar rats with 1 kidney-1 clip model of arterial hypertension (1K-1C AH). The animals were divided into 3 groups: I- sham-operated (SO), II- 4-week and III- 8-week 1K-1C AH rats. Plasma concentration of ET1, CGRP and EET ’s were investigated every 4 h. In conscious freely moving 1K-1C AH rats ...

Publication date: 1 December 2019Source: Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces, Volume 184Author(s): Maosheng Xu, Kunsong Zhang, Yubing Liu, Jie Wang, Ke Wang, Yuanqing ZhangAbstractThe treatment of cancer has always been a worldwide problem. The combination of chemotherapy and other therapies would be a promising therapy strategy. Photothermal therapy (PTT) does not cause serious side effects and has dual control of time and space, which was considered to be a good method for combination with chemotherapy. Here, we modified multifunctional nanosheets based on in-situ gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) grown molybdenum disulfide...

We previously established CGRP-modified BMSCs that express the CGRP gene and demonstrated that this elevated CGRP expression promotes osteogenic differentiation of BMSCs. The current study investigated the therapeutic effects of CGRP-modified BMSCs combi...
