How diabetes drug metformin prevents, suppresses cancer growth Ancient genetic pathway suggests new ways to fight cancers and support healthy aging December 16, 2016 [image: Metformin growth inhibition process (credit: Lianfeng Wu et al./Cell)] A team of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Harvard Medical School investigators has identified a pathway that appears to underlie the apparent ability of the diabetes drug metformin to both block the growth of human cancer cells and extend the lifespan of the *C.elegans* roundworm. That finding implies that this single genetic pathway ma... mais »

aging clock

Cellular reprogramming turns back the aging clock in miceDecember 18, 2016 [image: Turning Back the Aging Clock ft] Salk Institute scientists have extended the average lifespan of live mice by 30 percent, according to a study published December 15 in *Cell*. They did that by rolling back the “aging clock” to younger years, using cellular reprogramming. The finding suggests that *aging is* *reversible *by winding back an animal’s biological clock to a more youthful state and that lifespan can be extended. While the research does not yet apply… read more *Topics:* Biotech Comments (13)

Method discovered to remove damaging amyloid plaques found in Alzheimer’s diseaseDecember 23, 2016 [image: Illustration of formation of beta-amyloid plaques. Enzymes act on the APP (amyloid precursor protein) and cut it into fragments. The beta-amyloid fragment is crucial in the formation of senile plaques in Alzheimer’s disease. (credit: National Institute on Aging/NIH)] German scientists have discovered a strategy for removing amyloid plaques — newly forming clumps in a brain with Alzheimer’s disease that are created by misfolded proteins that clump together and damage nerve cells. ... mais »

Sundowner's Syndrome: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatments A person with sundowner's syndrome experiences increased episodes of confusion, agitation, and activity as the day progresses to night. There may be agitation and personality changes that are dramatically unlike the person's normal behavior. This can be frightening for the individual and their caregiver. While most people are "winding down" or relaxing as the day goes on, those with sundowner's syndrome become increasingly active. Sundowner's syndrome is often associated with dementia, a condition that affects a person's memory, pe... mais »
