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...

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...

CDC: ‘No longer any doubt’ Zika causes microcephaly, other birth defects

CDC officials recently confirmed that a causal relationship exists between Zika virus infection during pregnancy and microcephaly and other serious birth defects. “It is now clear that Zika does cau...

Microcephaly – Brazil

[Comment] Microcephaly in Brazil: how to interpret reported numbers?

Brazil is facing its first outbreak of Zika virus, particularly in the northeast region. Most cases of Zika virus infection are self-limited and without sequelae, but there have been clusters of cases...

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...

Detection and sequencing of Zika virus from amniotic fluid of fetuses with microcephaly in Brazil: a case study.

The incidence of microcephaly in Brazil in 2015 was 20 times higher than in previous years. Congenital microcephaly is associated with genetic factors and several causative agents. Epidemiological dat...

Genotype-dependent lifespan effects in peptone deprived Caenorhabditis elegans.

Dietary restriction appears to act as a general non-genetic mechanism that can robustly prolong lifespan. There have however been reports in many systems of cases where restricted food intake either s...

New guidance is needed on diagnosing microcephaly in severely malnourished children.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all children have a headcircumference measurement at each well-child visit until two years of age. Low head circumference is associated with preterm ...

How have trends in lifespan variation changed since 1950? A comparative study of 17 Western European countries.

Lifespan variation adds to life expectancy by measuring the inequality surrounding age of death that a population faces. Countries that tackle premature mortality generally have decreasing lifespan va...
