Genetic switch could be key to increased health and lifespan

Newly discovered genetic switches that increase lifespan and boost fitness in worms are also linked to increased lifespan in mammals, offering hope that drugs to flip these switches could improve huma...

New doubts on Zika as cause of microcephaly

Brazil's microcephaly epidemic continues to pose a mystery—if Zika is the culprit, why are there no similar epidemics in other countries also hit hard by the virus? In Brazil, the microcephaly rate ...

Longevity is increasing: Can we extend our lifespan, one gene at a time?

How much do "good genes" matter? In some countries, average lifespan is creeping towards 90. New research is beginning to crack open the mystery of longer life. The post

Naturally occurring p16Ink4a-positive cells shorten healthy lifespan

When senescent cells accumulate during adulthood they negatively influence lifespan and promote age-dependent changes in several organs; clearance of these cells delayed tumorigenesis in mice and atte...

Bird DNA shows inbreeding linked to shorter lifespan

Pieces of DNA that predict lifespan are shorter in birds that are inbred - according to new research from the University of East Anglia (UEA).

Researchers extend lifespan by as much as 35 percent in mice

Researchers at Mayo Clinic have shown that senescent cells - cells that no longer divide and accumulate with age - negatively impact health and shorten lifespan by as much as 35 percent in normal mice...
