Staff Soskovskogo Institute figured out how to reprogram cells to stop aging. The research assistants were partly restored skin cells into an embryonic state. Mouse who underwent the procedure began to look younger. In addition, they lived 30% longer. If people will be able to do the same thing, the average life expectancy will increase to 108 years, reports The Daily Mail.
Scientists from the Biogerontology research Association (BGRF) and the University of Liverpool have created a unique database tools that can increase life expectancy, writes News-medical.net. The database has received the name DrugAge, it also includes information about 418 connections.
In the study, researchers from Cairo University participated 545 adult men. Experts found that men with more gray hair often faced with diseases of the heart and blood vessels. The results did not depend on the age of the volunteers, says Zee News.
Scientists from Brigham young University analyzed data from 5823 adults. In the study, the volunteers measured the length of telomeres located at the ends of chromosomes, writes UPI.com. The length of telomeres depends on the duration of life. Considered: the longer, the longer I live the body. With age, the telomeres are shortened.
Breakthrough of Russian specialists in the diagnosis and treatment of coronary heart disease are unique nanoparticles. As mentioned in the “Russian newspaper”, one of the main causes of mortality in most countries is coronary artery disease. However, the treatment has a large number of risks as a potent medicinal substances having a selective action, can harm healthy tissue. These facts gave impetus to scientists to develop nanoparticles that were carriers for drugs (the cell’s action significantly reduces the risk of various complications).
