Discussion of Developmental Effects on Aging Microtubule Function and Longevity in Nematodes Quantifying the Correlation Between Poverty and Faster Pace of Aging Matthew O'Connor Presenting on Underdog Pharmaceuticals at Undoing Aging 2019 https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2019/09/matthew-oconnor-presenting-on-underdog-pharmaceuticals-at-undoing-aging-2019/ Here Matthew O'Connor of the SENS Research Foundation talks about the research that led to founding of Underdog Pharmaceuticals, a biotech startup incubated by the foundation to commercialize a means of targeting 7-ketocholesterol in atherosclerosis and other conditions. Oxidized cholesterols, and largely 7-ketocholesterol, are the primary cause of dysfunction in the macrophage cells normally responsible for preventing the build up of fatty plaques in blood vessel walls. That dysfunction is the cause of atherosclerosis, and the fact that the presence of oxidized cholesterols increases with age is one of the reasons why atherosclerosis is an age-related disease, and why young people don't exhibit the plaques that narrow and weaken blood vessels. A sufficiently effective way of selectively clearing 7-ketocholesterol from the body should go a long way towards preventing and reversing atherosclerosis - and possibly other conditions as well. As noted here, there is evidence for 7-ketocholesterol to accumulate in other tissues and contribute to age-related conditions in other ways. The particular ap...

In this study, we investigated the potential effects of disocin on amyloid-β peptide (Aβ1-42) oligomers-treated HT22 cells. Aβ1-42 oligomers induced great neurotoxicity to HT22 cells as examined by 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay. The results of terminal deoxynucleoitidyl transferase-mediated deoxyuridine triphosphate biotin nich end labeling (TUNEL) staining and flow cytometry indicated that Aβ1-42 oligomers led to increased apoptosis and generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in HT22 cells. However, dioscin could remarkably inhibit the neurotoxicity induce...
