This study shows that mRNA levels of the aging related lamin A splice variant progerin, associated with premature aging in HGPS, were significantly upregulated in subjects with BMI ≥ 25 kg/m2. Moreover, our data revealed a significantly positive correlation of BMI with progerin mRNA. These data provide to our knowledge for the first-time evidence for a possible involvement of progerin in previously observed accelerated aging of overweight and obese individuals potentially limiting their longevity. Our results also showed that progerin mRNA was positively correlated with C-reactive protein (CRP). This might suggest an as...

This study used a population-based medical dataset to explore the association between previously diagnosed psoriasis and dementia in Taiwan.MethodsUsing the Taiwan Longitudinal Health Insurance Database 2000, we identified 7118 individuals with a diagnosis of dementia; a further 21,354 sex- and aged-matched individuals were randomly extracted as controls. Patients with bullous pemphigoid, which is characterized by inflammatory phenomena similar to that evident in psoriasis, were chosen as a control group. Conditional logistic regression was performed to evaluate the association between dementia and prior psoriasis or bullo...

In this study, it was also reported that the participants who regularly did yoga felt less anxious and depressed. It is believed that yoga can play a role in slowing down the harmful effects that stress can cause the body both physically and psychologically.4 Weakened Immune System Studies show that stress is linked to a malfunctioning immune system. When immune cells are suppressed, tissues are harmed by chronic inflammation. Patients with autoimmune diseases report flare-ups around stressful times in their lives. This could be the reason behind why people may get sick when going through stressful situations, leaving the...
