2020 Longevity Year in Review

Posted by Chris Pollyanna , 10 January 2021 - - - - - - · 244 views
supplements, lifestyle and 7 more...
Despite the year we’ve had, it is always a pleasure to take a step back and look at how far the longevity field has come, for we have come a long way in understanding and being able to treat ageing. 2020 was no exception. From breakthroughs in cellular reprogramming to human trials in blood plasma fractions, the longevity field continues to accelerate....

December 2020 Longevity Review

Hello and welcome to 2020’s final longevity review. As this dreadful year mercifully comes to a close, it has at least left us with a last few parting longevity gifts. In particular, this month saw the long awaited publication of a cellular reprogramming study which restored sight to blinded mice. The significance is that they actually turned back the epi...

November 2020 Longevity Review

supplements, alpha ketoglutarate and 4 more...
November turned out to be a bonanza for longevity studies, especially when it came to human studies of available supplements. I was in a bit of a quandary as to which studies to include in the Round-Up until I got around the problem by creating a dedicated section for them, rather than having to relegate some to the Supplementary Section. But, there were...

October 2020 Longevity Review

supplements, covid, metformin and 2 more...
Hello and welcome again to this month’s longevity review. As COVID 19 surges once again across the northern hemisphere, I wanted to shine a bit of light on the fact that at heart COVID is yet another disease of ageing, at least in its pathological implications. After all, it is primarily the elderly who suffer complications or morbidity from it as a resul...

September 2020 Longevity Review

supplements, metformin, nad+ and 4 more...
Hello and welcome again to this month’s longevity review. After last month’s focus on more further off longevity treatments such as gene therapy, this month the focus has shifted to more readily available drugs. Old stalwart Metformin has more evidence to its efficacy, while fellow diabetes drug Canagliflozin has been shown to increase the lifespan of mal...

August 2020 Longevity Review

supplements, covid 19, senolytics and 2 more...
Hello and welcome again to this month’s longevity review. August was another month of progress; however, I cannot shy away from the elephant in the room, which is the failure of the Unity senolytics trial for osteoarthritis. Although without a doubt a setback, it doesn’t invalidate the entire senolytic field. There are a hundred and one different rea...

Hello and welcome again to this month’s longevity review. July was another month of progress, as yet more studies show the potential of rejuvenation using a variety of methods. To further demonstrate the variety of these methods, I’ve added a section for all the lifespan extension studies in model organisms. Most of them are using yeast or roundworms, but...

June 2020 Longevity Review  
Hello and welcome again to this month’s longevity review. I’ve put together this review in the sweltering Torontonian summer heat where we’ve already had more days over 30 degrees than the whole of last summer - not helped by my stubborn (or is it crazy?) refusal to succumb to A/C! Similarly, the longevity field cont...

May 2020 Longevity Review
Hello and welcome again to this month’s longevity review. May turned out to be a bumper month in longevity research news, led off by a preprint study which caused quite a buzz in the community and which was previewed on these very pages last year. That study concerned adding youthful blood factors to rats which resulte...

April 2020 Longevity Review  Hello and welcome again to this month’s longevity review. With the world caught in a virus standstill, thankfully science continues to trundle along in the background and results keep on being published. This month a potentially better senolytic has been invented, a means of lengthening telomeres found and a novel met...
