Blood vessels passing through the central nervous system are sheathed by specialized cells that form the blood-brain barrier. The barrier controls the passage of cells and molecules into the brain. This protection is essential to the normal function of the brain, which operates in a biological environment that is very different to that of the result of the body. Unfortunately, and like all systems in the body, the blood-brain barrier deteriorates with age. This allows harmful molecules and cells to leak into the brain, provoking a damaging state of chronic inflammation in brain tissue. Inflammation is thought to be an impo...

In this study, Desferal, deferoxamine mesylate for injection, which is approved for the treatment of acute iron intoxication and chronic iron overload, was used to explore the beneficial effects on preventing aging-induced bone loss and mitigating dysfunction of aged BMSCs. High-dose Desferal significantly prevented bone loss in aged rats. Compared with controls, the ex vivo experiments showed that short-term Desferal administration could promote the potential of BMSC growth and improve the rebalance of osteogenic and adipogenic differentiation, as well as rejuvenate senescent BMSCs and revise the expression of stemness/se...
