Smells Can Influence Metabolism and Aging

Exposure to female odors and pheromones causes weight loss and extends the life spans of mice, which may have implications for humans. “Our studies show that female odors slow the sexual development of female mice, but consequently extends their lifespan. And we also show that the smell of females can increase male mouse energy expenditure, […]

Discovery Could Hold the Key to Healthy Aging During Global Warming

Researchers have long known that many animals live longer in colder climates than in warmer climates. New research in C. elegans nematode worms suggests that this phenomenon is tied to a protein found in the nervous system that controls the expression of collagens, the primary building block of skin, bone and connective tissue in many […]

Hair Follicle Transplants Can Promote Scar Rejuvenation

Tissue remodeling is the reorganization of tissue architecture, which can be either physiological, responsible for directing the development and maintenance of tissues, or pathological, occurring after tissue injury. During wound repair initiated by an injury to the skin, cells migrating into the wound bed deposit a mass of granulation tissue to re-establish the barrier integrity […]

Stay Well-Hydrated May Slow Down The Aging Process

Finding and implementing preventive measures that can slow down the aging process is currently recognized as a major challenge of preventive medicine to combat the epidemic of age-dependent chronic diseases that is emerging as a result of a rapidly aging world population. Disparities in the pace of biological aging are already detectable at midlife indicating […]

Scientists Have Shown they Can Safely Reverse the Aging Process in Mice

Partial reprogramming by expression of reprogramming factors (Oct4, Sox2, Klf4 and c-Myc) for short periods of time restores a youthful epigenetic signature to aging cells and extends the life span of a premature aging mouse model. However, the effects of longer-term partial reprogramming in physiologically aging wild-type mice are unknown.  As organisms age, it is […]

Natural Antimicrobial Produce by Fatty Cells Helps to Treat Acne (SKIN CARE)

Acne vulgaris is characterized by noninflammatory, open or closed comedones and by inflammatory papules, pustules, and nodules. Acne vulgaris typically affects the areas of skin with the densest population of sebaceous follicles; these areas include the face, the upper part of the chest, and the back. Acne vulgaris is the most common skin disease in […]
