Credit: UNSW By adapting pattern recognition techniques used to assess satellite images, scientists have devised a novel way to diagnose blinding eye diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration. Researchers at the Centre for Eye Health at UNSW Sydney have devised a novel approach to classify and diagnose blinding eye diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration, by […]Continue Reading ...
May 30, 2018 Defective energy production in old neurons might explain why our brains are so prone to age-related diseases. Salk researchers used a new method to discover that cells from older individuals had impaired mitochondria–the power stations of cells–and reduced energy production. A better understanding of the effects of aging on mitochondria could reveal […]Continue Reading ...
An enzyme called SIRT1 declines in the blood vessels with age and restoring it reverses the effects of vascular aging. After receiving a supplement called NMN, older mice showed increased capillary density, blood flow, mobility, and endurance. Credit: Cell; Zolt Arany, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania As people age, their blood-vessel density and […]Continue Reading ...

April 3, 2018 A University of Delaware researcher is investigating a novel compound’s role in combating age-related chronic diseases like mild cognitive disorder and dementia. Christopher Martens, an assistant professor of Kinesiology and Applied Physiology, is studying a naturally occurring dietary supplement, nicotinamide riboside (NR) – a novel form of vitamin B3 – and its […]Continue Reading ...
March 22, 2018 Women older than age of 65 should still get screenings One in five women diagnosed with cervical cancer in the United States will be diagnosed after the age of 65, suggesting that the recommend age to stop cervical cancer screening should be reconsidered, according to researchers who presented today at the Society […]Continue Reading ...
June 5, 2018 If you’re up there in age and feel like you can coast as a couch potato, you may want to reconsider. A new study suggests, for the first time in women over age 70, that working up a sweat can reduce the influence one’s genes have on obesity. “Our sample, which included […]Continue Reading ...
June 4, 2018 Preliminary results from a new study show that excess heart age (EHA) appeared to be lowest among adults who reported sleeping seven hours per 24-hour period. Results show that mean adjusted EHA was lowest among adults who reported sleeping seven hours per 24-hour period. Sleeping times less than or greater than seven […]Continue Reading ...
April 30, 2018 Healthy older people who exercise regularly are less inclined to struggle to find words to express themselves, research led by the University of Birmingham has discovered. Researchers found that older adults’ aerobic fitness levels are directly related to the incidence of age-related language failures such as ‘tip-of-the-tongue’ states. The research, published today […]Continue Reading ...
April 12, 2018 Entering menopause at a later age may be associated with a small benefit to your memory years later, according to a study published in the April 11, 2018, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. “This study suggests that lifelong hormonal processes, not just short-term fluctuations […]Continue Reading ...
April 4, 2018 Physicians and researchers at the USC Roski Eye Institute have collaborated with other California institutions to show that a first-in-kind stem cell-based retinal implant is feasible for use in people with advanced dry age-related macular degeneration. The results of their phase I/IIa study, which was funded in part by the California Institute […]Continue Reading ...
March 30, 2018 Researchers from the longevity biotech company GERO and Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) have shown that physical activity data acquired from wearables can be used to produce digital biomarkers of aging and frailty. The breakthrough demonstration untaps the emerging potential of combining wearable sensors and AI technologies for continuous health […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Does life really begin at 40? Is 50 the new 30? For people in these age groups, the answer appears to be yes. But for young adults in their teens and early 20s, turning 50 equates to hitting old age. A new study of more than a half-million Americans led by […]Continue Reading ...
