A small molecule, 6-thio-dG, may provide a new approach to treating currently untreatable pediatric brain cancers, researchers report.
A new study reports telomere length may be shortened in newborn babies whose mothers did not graduate high school.
New mothers who sleep less than seven hours a night six months after giving birth had an increase in biological age of between three to seven years compared to new moms who slept for seven or more hours.
A new study reports on the long term impact of parental stress on the health of their offspring and future generations.
Childhood adversity and lifetime psychopathology are associated with shorter telomeres and higher mtDNA content, a new study reports.
To live to be 100, you need to keep inflammation low and telomeres long, a new study reports.
NASA scientists have published the results of the Kelly Twin Study, which revealed how the body adapts to life in space, compared to life on Earth. The findings revealed that, in space, telomeres are unexpectedly longer, the immune system responds appropriately, and variability in gene expression alters.
A new study reports the shortening of telomere length can be statistically linked to the active mechanism responsible for Alzheimer's disease.
Scientific research is helping to unlock the secrets behind why some people live to become super-agers. Researchers propose ways in which we can slow the aging process and extend our life spans.
Telomere lengthening resulted in structural changes in the brain, including cortical thickening. By contrast, telomere shortening is associated with gray matter reduction, specifically in the precuneus.
