No single gene for ageing
According to professor Thomas Kirkwood of the University of Newcastle, there is no single gene for ageing. Throughout time, Humans have used energy to get food, produce offspring and survive danger - not to repair and maintain cells. So the maintenance system in the body slowly breaks down. This topic was of great interest at the seminar for ageing at the international conference (2005-09-12)

Antioxidants are unlikely to prevent aging, study suggests
Diets and beauty products which claim to have anti-oxidant properties are unlikely to prevent aging, according to research funded by the Wellcome Trust. Researchers at the Institute of Healthy Aging at UCL say this is because a key 50-year-old theory about the causes of aging is wrong. (2008-11-30)

Cancer causes premature ageing
New research shows that cancer causes premature ageing. Researchers studied Leukaemia, and found that it promotes premature ageing in healthy bone marrow cells. It is well known that ageing promotes cancer development. But this is the first time that the reverse has been shown to be true. Importantly, the aged bone marrow cells accelerated the growth and development of the leukaemia -- creating a vicious cycle that fuels the disease. (2019-01-30)

Living fast but dying older is possible -- if you're a sheep
Modern humans may live longer than hunter gatherers, chimpanzees, mountain sheep or the European robin, but what does that tell us about how we age relative to other species? Not much, according to new research published next week in the British Ecological Society's journal Methods in Ecology and Evolution, which presents a new way of comparing how different species age. (2011-02-14)

BGRF and Chatham House announce 'Ageing and Health: Policy and Economics in an Era of Longevity'
How can societies meet the health, policy and economic challenges of global population aging? One in nine people in the world is 60 or older and this is expected to rise to one in five people by 2050. A globally aging population and the associated demographic changes have wide-ranging implications for health systems, medical priorities, economic policies, and labor and consumer markets. (2014-12-16)

Youth obsession and reality of ageing set to collide
Australian society's obsession with looking younger is set to collide with the reality of an ageing population, a University of Queensland researcher has warned. According to researcher Mair Underwood, who will present her work at the Emerging Researchers in Ageing (ERA) 2005 conference in Brisbane this week, the current fixation with trying to postpone ageing is increasing and the current older generation may be the last to age gracefully. (2005-11-09)

Scientists gain new understanding of age-related depression and dementia
Researchers at the University of Edinburgh have identified for the first time a certain area of the brain which can shrink in old age and cause depression and Alzheimer's disease. The scientists believe the shrinkage may be caused by high levels of stress hormones. (2006-02-28)

Identification of a key protein linked to ageing
Ageing is a dramatic public health issue in the face of the current demographic changes: the proportion of 60 and over in the world's population will almost double by 2050. In this context, a new discovery has just broadened scientific knowledge. Researchers from the Developmental and Stem Cell Biology Department at the Institut Pasteur shed light on the mechanisms of senescence, by identifying a key protein associated with ageing. (2019-12-09)

Active aging is much more than exercise
The global population is aging rapidly, and the growing numbers of elderly challenge our societal structures, not least the health sector, which is why authorities encourage the elderly to lead active and healthy life styles. But to equate active aging strictly with health is too narrow a focus, new research from University of Copenhagen shows; the elderly can reap many benefits from activities that do not necessarily conform to official life style recommendations -- billiards for instance. (2014-10-08)

Pinpointing the molecular mechanisms of aging
Although each and every one of us goes through it, aging is a poorly understood process. Researchers have used a biomarker called the epigenetic clock to identify a gene that is closely linked to aging in humans. This study shows that the epigenetic clock could be a good tool for improving our understanding of the molecular mechanisms behind aging. (2019-08-13)

Newly confirmed biochemical mechanism in cells is key component of the anti-ageing program
Scientists from Russia, Germany and Switzerland now confirmed a mechanism in mouse, bat and naked mole rat cells -- a 'mild depolarization' of the inner mitochondrial membrane -- that is linked to ageing: Mild depolarization regulates the creation of mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (mROS) in cells and is therefore a mechanism of the anti-ageing program. (2020-03-11)

Fruit flies live longer on lithium
Fruit flies live 16 percent longer than average when given low doses of the mood stabilizer lithium, according to a UCL-led study. How lithium stabilizes mood is poorly understood but when the scientists investigated how it prolongs the lives of flies, they discovered a new drug target that could slow ageing -- a molecule called glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3). (2016-04-07)
