Investigadores informan conexión entre células relacionadas con el envejecimiento y pérdida ósea

ROCHESTER, Minnesota: Los investigadores de Mayo Clinic informaron acerca de una conexión casual, observada en ratones, entre las células senescentes (células que se relacionan con el envejecimiento y las enfermedades propias de la edad) y la pérdida ósea. Al dirigir los esfuerzos contra esas células, se logró aumentar la masa y la fortaleza ósea. Los […]

Researchers report link between cells associated with aging and bone loss

ROCHESTER, Minn. — Mayo Clinic researchers have reported a causal link between senescent cells – the cells associated with aging and age-related disease – and bone loss in mice. Targeting these cells led to an increase in bone mass and strength. The findings appear online in Nature Medicine. Low bone mass and osteoporosis are estimated to […]

Investigadores de Mayo Clinic descubren vínculo entre envejecimiento y asoladora enfermedad pulmonar

ROCHESTER, Minnesota: Un estudio de Mayo Clinic aportó pruebas que vinculan a la biología del envejecimiento con la fibrosis pulmonar idiopática, enfermedad que daña la función pulmonar y produce falta de aire, cansancio, deterioro de la calidad de vida y finalmente muerte. Los investigadores creen que estos resultados, publicados hoy en Nature Communications, son el […]

Mayo Clinic researchers discover link between aging, devastating lung disease

ROCHESTER, Minn. — A Mayo Clinic study has shown evidence linking the biology of aging with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a disease that impairs lung function and causes shortness of breath, fatigue, declining quality of life, and, ultimately, death. Researchers believe that these findings, which appear today in Nature Communications, are the next step toward a […]

Científicos de Mayo Clinic desarrollan manera de medir con exactitud factor de crecimiento vinculado con el envejecimiento

ROCHESTER, Minnesota: Los científicos de Mayo Clinic desarrollaron una manera exacta de medir un factor circulante, conocido como GDF11, para entender mejor su posible repercusión sobre el proceso del envejecimiento. Descubrieron que los niveles de GDF11 no descienden con la edad cronológica, sino que se relacionan con señales de edad biológica avanzada, entre las que […]

Mayo Clinic Researchers Develop Accurate Way to Measure Growth Factor Linked to Aging

ROCHESTER, Minn. — Researchers at Mayo Clinic have developed an accurate way to  measure a circulating factor, called GDF11, to better understand its potential impact on the aging process. They found that GDF11 levels do not decline with chronological age, but are associated with signs of advanced biological age, including chronic disease, frailty and greater operative […]
