Fight Aging! Newsletter, January 6th 2020

Conclusion A great deal of progress is being made in the matter of treating aging: in advocacy, in funding, in the research and development. It can never be enough, and it can never be fast enough, given the enormous cost in suffering and lost lives. The longevity industry is really only just getting started in the grand scheme of things: it looks vast to those of us who followed the slow, halting progress in aging research that was the state of things a decade or two ago. But it is still tiny compared to the rest of the medical industry, and it remains the case that there is a great deal of work yet to be done at all stages of the development process. Senolytics must reach the clinic and widespread availability, and that will involve the deployment of vast amounts of funding. At the same time, however, numerous other equally important lines of rejuvenation research are still largely stuck in the labs or in preclinial development at best. There is much left to accomplish. Senolytic Therapies as Preventative Medicine for Glaucoma https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2020/01/senolytic-therapies-as-preventative-medicine-for-glaucoma/ Lingering populations of senescent cells grow with age, and cause considerable harm via their inflammatory secretions. They are a tool to promote regeneration and resistance to cancer in the short term, but like many short term systems, they become damaging when left switched on for the long term. As I noted just yesterday, even...

Authors: Khan MY, Pandit S, Jayagopal PB, Oomman A, Chockalingam KC, Ramakrishnan A, Mane A, Mehta S, Shah S Abstract Background: Real-world data on the effectiveness of antihypertensive drugs (AHDs) in India is limited. The present study aims to provide updated evidence regarding the effectiveness of olmesartan as monotherapy or in combination with other AHDs in Indian patients with essential hypertension. Methods: Electronic medical record data of adult patients who were diagnosed with essential hypertension (≥140/90 mmHg) and were prescribed olmesartan as mono- or add-on therapy were retrospectively analy...

Conclusion: Gastrointestinal side effects being most common side effect of metformin can lead to discontinuation of therapy. So before extensive evaluation of any GI problem in patient on metformin, other methods can be tried like temporary discontinuation, dose titration or proper intake of medicine. These side effects may also occur even after prolonged treatment with metformin. PMID: 32738838 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: The results demonstrate that IV and oral levonadifloxacin therapy has excellent clinical activity against MRSA and offers advantage compared to other quinolones which generally lack MRSA coverage. Levonadifloxacin is safe and well tolerated in the treatment of ABSSSI caused by Gram -positive pathogens including MRSA as well as non-inferior to IV and oral linezolid, respectively. Similar pharmacokinetic profile of IV and oral levonadifloxacin provides an option for IV to oral switch for the treatment of subjects. Both oral and IV levonadifloxacin have recently been granted approval in India for the treatment of...

Authors: Gupta R, Pamecha H Abstract Objective: To find the serum hsCRP (high sensitive C reactive protein) levels in type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (DM) patients and compare its level between type 2 DM patients and healthy control subjects. To find the relationship of hsCRP levels in type 2 DM with and without vascular complications. To find the correlation of hsCRP with HbA1c and duration of type 2 DM among cases and to find the optimum cut-off value for hsCRP among type 2 DM patients. Methods: The study was conducted on type 2 DM patients with or without microvascular or macrovascular complications and nondiabetic...

Authors: Singh S, Lohakare AC Abstract Objective: Leptin levels are increased in obesity and have been found to be strongly associated with obesity, increased risk of cardiovascular diseases and morbidity. While, carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) is measured to predict atherosclerosis in early phase. Thus, the objective of this study was to evaluate the leptin levels and CIMT in overweight and obese individuals. Methods: This cross-sectional study involving 95 subjects, was performed over a period of 1 year in the Department of Medicine, King George's Medical University, Lucknow. Anthropometric measurements...

Authors: Maydeo A, Patil G, Dalal A, Thakare S, Iyer A, Patil N Abstract Introduction: Endoscopic Sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) is a novel minimally invasive endoscopic restrictive bariatric procedure. We studied the safety, effectiveness, 6-month weight loss outcomes of ESG. Methods: We prospectively collected data for patients undergoing ESG at a tertiary care referral center. Laboratory investigations were performed preoperatively, and at 6 months post-operatively. Anthropometric measurements were noted pre and post-operatively at a frequency of 3 months for a 6-month follow-up. Patients with BMI ≥28 kg/m2 wh...
