Article: "Gero scientists found a way to break the limit of human longevity"

Post by OzSport » Wed May 26, 2021 4:56 pm

The title of article is a bit click-baity (!), but the article is still quite interesting, as it discusses some new research about human resilience and its effects on aging:

Some key quotes from the article:

"This work, in my opinion, is a conceptual breakthrough because it determines and separates the roles of fundamental factors in human longevity - the aging, defined as progressive loss of resilience, and age-related diseases, as "executors of death" following the loss of resilience. It explains why even most effective prevention and treatment of age-related diseases could only improve the average but not the maximal lifespan unless true antiaging therapies have been developed" - says prof. Andrei Gudkov, PhD, Sr. Vice President and Chair of Department of Cell Stress Biology at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, a co-author of this work and a co-founder of Genome Protection, Inc., a biotech company that is focused on the development of antiaging therapies/.

"The investigation shows that recovery rate is an important signature of aging that can guide the development of drugs to slow the process and extend healthspan." - commented David Sinclair, Harvard Medical School professor of genetics.

So resilience, or recovery rate can be considered a marker of aging, or deterioration.

And if it's something you can influence, resilience can be a determining factor.

It makes sense. The quicker the heart returns to resting heart rate after strenuous exercise as you age is one determining factor in how fit and healthy you are. It is probably the same for all the other body parts and organs.

It's vital to bounce back, especially from falls or flu.
