Is Bioprinting the Future of Anti-aging Skincare? – Truth In Aging

By daniellenierenberg

Imagine if you could print yourself a new skin. Wrinkles and wounds begone with the flick of a switch. I appreciate that this sounds farfetched, but I have been looking into bioprinting and anti-aging applications are not so far off into the future.

So what is bioprinting?

Bioprinting is a type of 3D printing that uses actual cells and other biological materials as inks to fabricate 3D biological structures. Bioprinted materials have the potential to repair damaged organs, cells, and tissues in the human body (source). All sorts of cell types are being studied for bioprinting including stem cells, muscle cells, and endothelial cells. When printed, each layer of cells will cool and stick to one another (due to the collagen), creating a solid, stable structure.

Researchers have used bioprinting to introduce cells to help repair the heart after a heart attack as well as deposit cells into wounded skin.

A couple of years ago, researchers in Singapore mimicked human skin pigmentation using a 3-D bioprinter. he pigmented skin was constructed in vitro using three types of skin cells: keratinocytes, melanocytes and fibroblasts. Apparently, this was a breakthrough for the making biometic skin because while the skin itself isnt a problem, uniform pigmentation had been a real challenge.

A review of scientific literature, covering studies that mostly used collagen and hydrosol gels as the biometric ink, found that there had been a positive impact of natural bioinks in promoting wound healing. These have all been animal tests, but some researchers think that human wound healing with bioink will happen in the next 3-5 years.

A clue that we could see cosmetic skincare applications one day came when LOreal partnered with a 3-D bioprinting company to develop 3-D printed tissue for product evaluation and research (source).

‘Who does this look like?’ Fiona was scrolling online when she discovered a family secret. – Mamamia

By daniellenierenberg

Later that night, Fiona was searching her godfather's books on Amazon when she came across an unusual review.

"Dr Walker was my biological father and sperm donor," it read, and the commenter was trying to find out further information about him.

Fiona, curious, emailed the reviewer, Anne: She explained how she had letters and photographs, and she'd be willing to share them.

Through back-and-forth she'd discovered Dr Walker had assisted more than 100 families by using his own sperm.

By this point, Fiona was almost certain she was the result of this.

"When I fished out his letters, I found a drivers license of his that he had given me from when he was 16. And I showed it to my husband and said, 'Who does this look like?' and he just laughed, because it looks exactly like our youngest daughter," Fionasaid on SBS Insight.

"I went and had a chat to my mum and I said, 'Look, something's going on here and I'd like you to tell me the truth.'"

Fiona's mother told her they'd used a sperm donor. She said Dr Walker was her gynaecologist, and sperm donations usually come from medical students.

Fiona, then 53, asked her mother if Dr Walker was the donor, but her mother couldn't give her a straight answer.

She told Insight she was devastated.

"It made a lot ofsense, but at the same timeI was really angry that I'd been lied to. It was a bit of a rollercoaster, I'd be thinking it was prettycool one moment and then prettyhorrible the next moment. It's been like that eversince," she said.

The Anti-aging Benefits of Using Growth Factors Plus Retinol – Coveteur

By daniellenierenberg

Sciences most powerful ingredients are better together.

Every skin-care enthusiast has heard of retinol, the dermatological gold standard in anti-aging and vitamin A derivative that lessens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promotes collagen production, minimizes breakouts, and resurfaces your skin. But the famed ingredient is also known for some of its less desirable side effectsnamely, irritation, redness, flaking, and photosensitivity, which can make it intolerable for sensitive skin types and unsafe for use in pregnant and nursing women.

Even as most dermatologists laud retinol for its extensive benefits, holistic aestheticians remain wary of the actives corrosive effects on the skin barrier. Because the skin barrier is key for retaining moisture and protecting the dermis from external irritants, aggressors, pollutants, and more, compromising it can sensitize skin, making it more susceptible to inflammation and irritation.

Growth factors have piqued our interest for being a sensitive-skin-friendly alternative to retinol, as these pro-healing proteins are safe for more continued use and are non-corrosive to the stratum corneumthe outermost layer of the epidermisand are gentle enough for sensitive skin types. But if youre not quite ready to let go of your retinol, it turns out that they can be used together to enhance the potency of your anti-aging regimen, even buffering the skin from some of retinols less desirable side effects.

Keep reading to get schooled on the use of growth factors in skin care according to dermatologists, and some guidance on whether the controversial ingredient could be right for you to try next.

As we grow older, our skins natural production of collagen decreases (starting around age 25), the elastin fibers begin to stiffen, and our skin produces lower quantities of growth factors, resulting in various signs of aging, like fine lines, crepiness, thinness, and sagging. This is where adding a topical growth factor into your routine can help. Says Lily Talakoub, MD, dermatologist and owner of dermtodoor.com, A growth factor is a large protein derived from human cells that targets the crucial turnover of cells, [promoting the increase] of [structural proteins] such as collagen and elastin.

Although they were first discovered in the 1950sand the scientists who did it were awarded the Nobel Prize for their research in 1986there was still some confusion as to how growth factors worked and their efficacy. But in the last few years, there has been a flurry of new anti-aging products that use growth factors like EGF (epidermal growth factor).

As Dr. Talakoub explains, growth factors stimulate the regeneration of cells that fight various signs of aging by prompting the cells to produce the structural components of the skin that are responsible for elasticity, firmness, and bounce. Specifically, ultra-healing EGF binds to the EGF receptor in the cell, aiding with cell proliferation, survival, and promoting DNA synthesis. By fortifying the presence of the structural tissues in the skin matrix, research shows that we can expect fewer fine lines and wrinkles over time. Think of growth factors as the key that unlocks and activates the cell to produce collagen and elastinboth of which give us that youthful lookand also help promote cell turnover and fight against inflammation.

As board-certified dermatologist Dr. Hadley King points out, growth factors like EGF can also be used to increase skin thickness and to improve tone and texture, particularly for sensitive skin types. If your skin is too sensitive to tolerate retinoids, then growth factors can be a substitute to stimulate collagen, even tone, and decrease roughness with much less irritation.

Dr. King explains that these proteins are almost universally tolerable, likely due to their natural presence in the body, and through inducing the bodys own natural mechanisms for repair, which in turn promotes skin healing. When they bind to receptors on cell surfaces, King continues, they send commands to repair, rejuvenate, and replicate. This makes them an excellent option for skin concerns ranging from inflammation and acne to fading scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Thanks to the Kardashians, youve undoubtedly heard of the trendy vampire facial, which uses your bodys own PRPplatelet-rich plasma that is derived from your own bloodto treat acne scars and smooth skin texture. This makes them a fantastic addition to your post-laser or post-microneedling treatment at the dermatologist. Adding a growth factor serum like PRP can also enhance the efficacy of the treatment, as well as reduce healing time.

While a PRP serum created in a centrifuge from your own blood is the ultimate way to go for an in-office encounter with growth factors, you can also follow up at home with a growth-factor-based serum to maximize your treatments effects. Just be sure to perform a patch test before applying it to the area that was treated, as that skin might still be extra sensitive and prone to inflammation.

One of the most important things to consider when selecting a growth factor comes down to the source. When we think of epidermal growth factor (EGF), there are two common methods of sourcing: bio (i.e., human- or animal-derived) and phyto (i.e., plant-derived). The general consensus within the scientific community seems to be that human-derived growth factors, especially PRP, are the most effective. Says Dr. Talakoub, Plant-based growth factors do not stimulate the growth of in vivo cells [in] the same [way] as ones derived from human cells.

However, not everyone is comfortable using a biological source for their skin-care products, even if they might deliver superior results. In products like the wildly popular growth-factor-based serums from SkinMedica and NeoCutis, the initial cell samples were obtained from neonatal fetal foreskin and fetal fibroblast cells, respectively, before being grown in the lab for use in their products. Depending on your ethical and political views, this might be an issue to consider before you try using these types of formulas.

And while these holy grail serums do use human stem cells, keep in mind that there are no body partswe repeat, absolutely no penises!in these serums, despite what Cate Blanchett says.

If youd rather bypass the ethical controversy of a human- or animal-derived growth factor altogether, rest assured that there are plant-based options. There are some engineered options that have been well tested and shown to be effective, says Dr. King, noting that the brands BIOEFFECT and DNA Renewal have both exhibited promising results related to skin repair, rejuvenation, and enhancement via a humanlike epidermal growth factor made in bio-engineered barley seeds.

Dr. Bjrn rvar, co-founder and chief scientific officer of BIOEFFECT, the makers of the worlds first bio-engineered, plant-based EGF, strongly believes that phyto-EGF is the new frontier in terms of tolerability, efficacy, and even safety. EGF has previously been grown in bacteria, which poses a risk of endotoxins, or extracted from human or animal cells, which presents ethical, moral, and legal issues as well as safety issues.

There are also upsides to selecting a phyto-sourced, synthetic EGF that go beyond ethics and speak to precision and measurable outcomes. The advantage to plant-derived growth factors is that there is a more defined concentration of known synthetic growth factors, and so it is theoretically easier to measure and predict outcomes, says dermatologist Dr. Mamina Turegano. And now with studies pointing to phyto sources of growth factor improving epidermal thicknesswhich thins as we agethese phyto-sourced options could be the new frontier in terms of bypassing the controversy altogether.

Because these two anti-aging actives work differently, with retinol promoting the turnover of keratinocytes (the primary type of cell in your epidermis) and growth factors targeting the formation of cells that produce collagen and elastin and strengthening your skin barrier, EGF and retinol can be used together to maximize your anti-aging skin-care routine.

So what happens when you use a growth factor along with a retinol product? Most growth factors are extremely large proteins [which] have a very difficult time penetrating the outer lipid bilayer of the skin, says Talakoub. Using a retinoid in combination with a growth factor allows [it] to penetrate the outer layers of the skin. She suggests using a vitamin C product during the daytime, and then layering your EGF with your retinol at night to see the best results.

If you do choose to use an EGF serum in conjunction with your favorite retinol, rvar recommends a particular process. We recommend always applying the EGF serum first, on clean skin, and allowing 510 minutes before applying anything else on top [to] give it time to activate the skin cells and do its magic, he notes. As he explains, EGF will help to boost hydration and counter the thinning of the skins outer layer that can occur with retinol. Their synergistic effects are the perfect complement to each other and will help make your anti-aging skin-care routine even more effective.

I Used to Hate Washing My Face But Now I’m Reaching for This Cult-Cleanser Constantly – POPSUGAR Beauty Austrailia

By daniellenierenberg

If you regularly read my beauty content (thanks and Hi mum!), you'll know that I'm a huge fan of celebrity skincare fave, iS Clinical. Their formulas are revered for combining highly active ingredients and plant-derived extracts with modern science. They're all are fragrance and paraben-free and directly tackle all major skin concerns dry, dull skin, anti-ageing, pigmentation, uneven skin tone and texture.

About three or so months ago, they finally landed an Australian stockist and I was able to get my hands on their Reparative Moisture Emulsion and Pro-Heal Serum. To say I was impressed with the results was an understatement, so I decided it was time to bench my go-to cleanser and give their cult-classic Cream Cleanser a whirl.

When it comes to ingredients, iS Clinical only use high-grade, dermatologist-recommended ingredients like plant-derived acids, vitamins A to E, stem cells and ceramides, so you know that you're going to get good results. But this, this cleanser surpassed my expectations and is perfect if, like me, you're lazy and CBF washing your face too regularly. (Naughty beauty writer, I know).

The Cream Cleanser combines bio-nutrients, antioxidants, and restorative ingredients that work to thoroughly cleanse the surface and pores of the skin while soothing the look and feel of any dry patches. One of my favourite parts about this cleanser is that post-cleanse, your skin is left feeling refreshed, hydrated and clean, rather than tight and dried out. My other favourite part (and here's where my inner lazy girl fell in love) is that you don't even have to wash it off, you can simply wipe it off with a muslin cloth and voila, you're done.

I've been using this cream cleanser for about a month now and I've already noticed a difference in my skin. And I'm not alone, Chrissy Teigen, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, January Jones and Zoey Deutch are all huge fans, too!

The Strangest Beauty Treatments Celebrities Have Tried – Marie Claire

By daniellenierenberg

Jodie Turner-Smith: Breast Milk Skincare

"Ever since I had my baby, my current beauty secret is that I put breast milk in all of my face serums," Turner-Smith shared with British Vogue. "My skin is very sensitive, so I use a light cleanser, and then I put on a serum with aloe and breast milk that I literally squeeze right into my hands from my boob. I think it's the lactic acid. I've just found that the milk has been revolutionary."

Blanchett refers to this, er, unique treatment as the penis facial (which she says Sandra Bullock introduced her to) but its more officially known as the Hollywood EGF Facial. "The foreskin is collected during circumcision and the stem cells are then harvested and extracted through a centrifuge," Georgia Louise, the facialist behind the treatment toldThe Hollywood Reporter. "I am always very mindful to explain radical serums and potions that I carry in my back bar, so I always explain that EGF is derived from newborn baby foreskin, but cells were taken and from that, new cells are cloned from a laboratory."

Kardashian Wests infamous blood-covered selfie caused quite the stir back in 2013, but it seems she didnt deem the vampire facial (a treatment where your own blood is spun in a centrifuge to extract the plasma within and then re-applied to your face) worth the pain, admitting that the treatment wasnt for her understandable considering her pregnancy meant painkillers were out of the question.

Unique beauty endeavours arent anything new in Paltrows case but this one has to be the most extreme yet. "I've been stung by bees. It's a thousands of years old treatment called apitherapy. People use it to get rid of inflammation and scarring. It's actually pretty incredible if you research it," she told The New York Times.

"I'm using this amazing snail [essence], yes, snail..." Ratajkowski recently revealed via social media. But while it may sound a little freaky, it certainly isnt fruitless snail mucin is a natural source of hyaluronic acid and has the ability to soothe, repair and diminish a variety of skin issues from dryness and breakouts to pigmentation.

The face and the rear end are two areas people generally like to keep pretty separate, but Bullock says the key to fighting crows feet lies in hemorrhoid care. "My favourite beauty pageant secret: I didn't realise that putting hemorrhoid ointment on your face is acceptable in the beauty business," Bullockshared back in her Miss Congeniality days. "But apparently butt cream does help lines around the eyes."

Lopez always looks a million bucks, which is fitting considering how much she invests in her complexion. In fact, its alleged that she spends approximately $1,200 per week on a texture-refining facial treatment that involves the skin-smoothing abilities of human placenta.

It might sound a little more glamorous than Lopezs placenta-centric option but the price tag is also a lot higher; yes, indeed, Kunis shelled out $7,000 for a sole precious stone treatment that uses diamonds and rubies to enhance radiance. We hope her skin was shining just as brightly as the stones after that cash splash.

Moore relies on medical leeches to keep her complexion looking tight, firm and youthful. "I feel like I've always been someone looking for the cutting edge of things that optimise your health and healing," she toldDavid Letterman in 2008. "I was in Austria doing a cleanse and part of the treatment was leech therapy. These aren't just swamp leeches thoughwe are talking about highly trained medical leeches. These are not some low level scavengerswe're talking high level blood suckers."

Beckhams topical treatment of choice? One composed of nightingale droppings. But while experts do claim that the brightening and exfoliating abilities are impressive, were simply not sure we can stomach this one. However, Beckhams perennial glow may just be enough to get us on board...

Here’s what to know about Sickle Cell Disease in kids – Loma Linda University Health

By daniellenierenberg

With September being Sickle Cell Disease Awareness Month, Loma Linda University Childrens Health wants to help educate the community about SCD one of the most common yet overlooked genetic disorders in the world.

Each year, approximately 1,000 babies in the U.S. and 500,000 worldwide are born with the disease, according to the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America.

Akshat Jain, MD, MPH, a global sickle cell disease expert at Childrens Hospital, is passionate about establishing awareness and proper care for children suffering from SCD and Sickle Cell Trait, especially the diverse patient population in San Bernardino County.

There are many barriers to receiving care for those with SCD in our community, Jain says. One barrier specifically is lack of awareness surrounding the disease coupled with lack of awareness surrounding the treatment options available at Childrens Hospital.

In sickle cell disease, a persons red blood cells have an irregular cell shape, Jain says. Instead of round discs, theyre in a crescent or sickle shape.

Due to their shape, texture and inflexibility, the cells become clumped together. This grouping causes a blockage in a childs blood vessels, hindering blood-flow. This blockage may cause varying levels of pain and potentially organ damage long-term.

Jain says some of the signs and symptoms of SCD include:

Jain says that many children with SCD develop symptoms in their first year of life. SCD is commonly diagnosed during newborn screening tests, which check for the abnormal hemoglobin found in SCD. Additionally, if both parents of a child are known carriers of a SCD trait, their child will have a 25% chance of having the disease, Jain says.

Some of the emergent issues needing immediate medical care in kids with SCD disease include:

Treatments for SCD include pain medicines for pain management, adequate hydration, blood transfusions, vaccines and antibiotics, and some medicines. Currently, stem cell transplant from bone marrow is the recognized cure for SCD.

Childrens Hospital, with Jain working as a lead on the team, performed the institutions first stem cell transplant in 2019, curing a then 11-year-old girl who had suffered from SCD since birth. Since then, the team has successfully performed the transplant on several pediatric patients.

Patients with SCD at Childrens Hospital are placed into a treatment and care program where Jain and his team offer non-traditional services such as individualized patient treatment plans and direct access to the care team in case of an emergent event. Additionally, the program is working toward offering curative gene therapy for both sickle cell and hemophilia patients.

The bottom line is children and families suffering from this disease need to know that theyre not alone, Jain says. Here at Childrens Hospital, we are here to manage and fight this disease alongside of you.

Derm Institute’s Newest Product Erases Age Spots (Users Can Rid Their Skin Of Ugly Dark Blemishes With New CB Spot Treatment) – PR Web

By daniellenierenberg

NEW YORK (PRWEB) September 15, 2020

Derm Institute Introduces New Product To Erase Age Spots(New CB Spot Treatment AddressesDark Blemishes)Derm Institute, producer of an award-winning skincare line that blends DNA and stem cell technology with traditional therapeutic herbs, has introduced a new product, CellularBrightening Spot Treatment (a.k.a., CB Spot Treatment), that eraces age spots. Also called liver spots or sun spots, these dark blemishes often appear as we age and tend to affect the hands, face, backs and shoulders.Derm Institute Operations Director Annie Hsu says thatCB Spot Treatment was developed for all skin types and is formulated not only to fade age spots but to promote more radiant, firmer skin.

Though most often caused by repeated exposure to the sun and/or tanning beds, age spots also can be caused by hormonal changes, side effects of certain medications (e.g., non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, tetracyclines and psychotropic drugs), wound healing and irritation caused by some cosmetics and hair products.

Getting rid of age spots can be one of the most frustrating and challenging aspects of caring for our skin and achieving a more youthful appearance, says Hsu. Our new CB Spot Treatment is a departure from other products on the market because it contains LightninC Complex, a proprietary mix of ingredients that inhibit the production of tyrosinase and melanogenesis, which are known for producing age spots.

Hsu says that LightninC Complex contains 48% vitamin C which is 30 times more effective than Kojic acid in reducing age spots, increasing collagen synthesis and protecting collagen to improve firmness. In addition, CB Spot Treatment is hydroquinone free.

Our formulation does not harm or irritate the skin like some other products on the market, she said. Rather, it significantly protects, regenerates and hydrates damaged skin.

Hsu says that CB Spot Treatment contains Vitamin A, a natural antioxidant that helps stimulate collagen, reverses the signs of prematurely-induced photo-aging and increases skin elasticity as well as vitamin E that scavenges damaging free radicals and protects the skin from UV damage.

The 30 ml CB Spot Treatment is priced at $290 and will be available exclusively at Space NK Apothecary, Space NK counters in Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman and online at DISkinCare.com.DERM INSTITUTES BACKGROUND:Derm Institute was founded in 2009 by renowned skincare researcher Young Lin who created a product to improve his father's skin, which was badly scarred and hypersensitive following chemo treatments. He used powerful herbal antioxidants to create a therapeutic ointment to reverse the damage and restore his skin back to its original health. Today, Derm Institute continues to use medical-grade ingredients as well as Eastern therapeutic herbs and plant stem cells as the foundation for its line of skin care products. The ingredients are derived from the stems and seeds of plants, which are the most durable part of the plant and least affected by pollution. In addition, its team of scientists employ the use of a microarray, a high-tech device used in the pharmaceutical industry, to test ingredients and examine gene activity. Made in America, Derm Institute products contain a potent combination of antioxidants, groundbreaking peptides and advanced delivery systems designed to achieve instant and cumulative results.

Stem cells, like Rosh Hashanah, give the opportunity to be reborn – The Jerusalem Post

By daniellenierenberg

Rosh Hashanah is the day of pregnancy of the world. Hayom Harat Olam (The day of creation of the world). What does it mean?Medical research today is focusing on a fascinating and visionary field, which is the study of "stem cells."The uniqueness of stem cells comes from two main features which distinguish them from other cells. The first is that they are still 'neutral cells', meaning, they have not yet received their final identity and purpose in the body, so they have not yet finalized their differentiation process. As a result of this, they are able to differentiate and can develop into one of many types of mature cells, such as a skin cell, a muscle cell or a blood cell. By doing so, new cells are created, which can regenerate various tissues and organs.The second unique feature of stem cells is that they are able to divide and multiply infinitely and produce identical cells. Thus, a constant pool of unsorted stem cells that have not acquired a final designation is preserved.The possibilities of healing, cell regeneration and the human body in general are fascinating, and the field of stem cells is one of the leading fields in the world. Its healing potentials are so vast, not only when it comes to repairing the damaged, but also recreating something more true and precise.When I think of Rosh Hashanah from a spiritual standpoint, it feels like today is the birth of the world. We have before us 353 days (because some Jewish months arent full) which have not yet been defined by how they will play out and how they will look. It is unknown how we will succeed as individuals, and how we will succeed as nation. Interestingly, the second feature that exists with stem cells also connects to Rosh Hashanah. On this holy day, we are praying and asking Hashem from a place of "anything is possible" there are no boundaries, no glass barriers, no one is stopping us from simply praying and asking. cnxps.cmd.push(function () { cnxps({ playerId: '36af7c51-0caf-4741-9824-2c941fc6c17b' }).render('4c4d856e0e6f4e3d808bbc1715e132f6'); });Hashem, everything is completely in our hands! We can change the world and create something entirely new. Rosh Hashanah gives us the opportunity to create and build anew; its the source of rebirth for the relationship between man and his friend, man and Hashem, and of course, man as one who is part of a nation and of the entire world.It's not for nothing that it is written in the Talmud Yerushalmi that whoever spends his time on Rosh Hashanah sleeping, his luck will also sleep. It's the time to act, ask, beg and change.The cells will divide, the decisions made will be in place, and the abundance from shamayim (heaven) will come down. We now have a very great ability and opportunity to influence that. Please dont miss out on this opportunity!Be that as it may, today is Harat Olam the pregnancy of the world. It is our responsibility to pray that this pregnancy will be the best it can be. Have a happy and sweet New Year.Rabbi Yitzak Neriya is the head of the Torah Betzion yeshiva and founder of the Echad Lechad (One to One) foundation.

HOROSCOPES: How Thursday’s new moon will affect your week, according to your star sign. – Mamamia

By daniellenierenberg

Venus pokes Uranus, provoking your mother, sister or aunt to ruffle your feathers. Stand your ground and dont allow anyone to sway you from your purpose. Although well-intentioned, this person isnt fully informed, and most importantly,she isnt living your life. Theres no need for harsh words, just gently remind her thatyoure capable of making your own decisions. And thats that!

Although this week brings a breath of fresh air in the form of a new project or chapter, someone is intent on undermining you. Their doubts stem from jealousy, so dont allow them to project their negativity onto you. Stay your course, Pisces. Come up with your own facts rather than listening to biased opinions. Believe in yourself and toss the naysayers to the curb.

A self-confessed astrology nerd, Natashas horoscopes, research and articles have been published in Todays Astrologer, in addition to international publications across the globe. A senior member of the Australian Academy of Astrology and Cosmobiology and a member of the American Federation of Astrologers, she has presented cosmic updates for Your Life Naturally and has appeared as a special guest on podcasts, including Sivana and Healthy-ish.

Sherrie Hewson turns 70 with second facelift after tough year left her ‘broken’ – Mirror Online

By daniellenierenberg

Sherrie Hewson faced up to turning 70 this week by giving herself a real lift.

The Benidorm and Corrie star, who hits the milestone birthday on Thursday, has had a second facelift to boost her confidence after a really tough year that saw her beloved brother die and left her lonely in lockdown.

Sherrie says she was completely broken after her older sibling Brett Hutchinson passed away in April and she couldnt visit him because of coronavirus restrictions.

Brett died of a brain tumour and the shock of his death has left Sherrie more determined than ever to live life to the full.

She told the Sunday Mirror: I am still not very strong, I still have moments. Whenever I hear any Motown music, which he loved, I just cry. The pain is so terrible, my heart is broken.

Now I look at my life and think, Hang on a minute, what have I got, how long have I got?

I mean, look at my brother. Two years ago he was the healthiest thing on this planet.

So none of us know whats going to happen.

In ten years time I am going to be 80, so I need to be healthy and well for my grandchildren.

I wish I had planned more when I was younger. Instead I just went steaming ahead, thinking I was going to live forever.

Brett was only a couple of years older than me, so as I go into my seventies his death has made me want to live every day to the max.

I want to do everything now everything crazy, mad and wonderful. Everything that is possible to do I want to do it now.

And that all started with her facelift.

Dubbed the love handle facelift or LHF Sherries procedure took just minutes and she went out to lunch straight afterwards.

The procedure involved removing fat from around her hips and stomach. This was then combined with her blood, to release stem cells from the fat.

The mixture, a thick serum, was then injected into layers into her face without even drawing blood. The results will last five years.

Sherrie said: The LHF was a quick treatment and its given me such a boost. I feel like its rejuvenated my skin and restored all the volume its natural looking with no cutting, and it was all done in under an hour.

I absolutely love the results.

She adds: I had a facelift when I was 50 and Ive had bits and bobs done throughout the years a bit of botox and filler. But I havent had anything done for a long time now.

But as I approached 70. I just thought, What will I do for myself at this age? I thought I would give myself a last kind of boost so I can look in the mirror and think, Youre not bad for your age.

Its to give myself a lift after all the stuff I have been through, particularly in the last 18 months.

I need to give my self-confidence and self-worth a big kick up the a**e so can I feel good about myself and hold my head up high.

The actress , who lives alone, says she found lockdown awful and even turned to drinking wine every night to get through it.

She says: It was just terrifying being alone. Thank God for the internet! I have been doing the Wonderbirds show and Ive been presenting courses on Zoom. That kept my mind busy.

I did put on weight and I am trying to be more sensible now. I started drinking, and I was drinking every night which I would never do. Then I thought, I must stop this.

So I stopped for two months and I didnt even miss it. Thats when I realised I didnt have a problem. I was just bored and lonely.

Now Sherrie is hoping to spend the next decade healthy and happy and maybe even in love.

Her Corrie character Maureen Webster had four husbands, including Reg Holdsworth, played by Ken Morley. But Sherrie says she hasnt even had a proper date since her marriage to Ken Boyd broke down in 2001, after he had an affair.

Now she hopes her facelift will give her the boost she needs to start going out with people again.

She says: Dating is harder as you get older - the older you get, the more you lack confidence. I sometimes look in the mirror and dont know who that much older woman is.

Sherrie would be more than happy with a kiss and cuddle with someone with their arms around you.

She says: I cant imagine any more what that feels like that warmth and that someone who wants to be with me. Just that alone would be enough.

Sherrie, who played flirty hotel manager Joyce Temple-Savage in ITV sitcom Benidorm, says she has had a couple of potential love interests.

One was a younger American man she met on dating site Plenty of Fish. But they came to nothing.

She says: I havent really dated since I broke up with my husband except I did go for a meal with a man and I ordered a bottle of wine. He put the cork in the bottle and said he was driving and I said, Im bloody not! and took the cork out.

We got back to my house and he tried kissing me and I just thought, No!

But passion is still on Sherries wishlist as shes still open to an unbelievable affair with the right man.

She also has dreams of launching a travel programme for older people showing that they can still do crazy, mad and wonderful things.

Because coronavirus restrictions are set to change again tomorrow, with the new Rule of Six, Sherrie wont be able to celebrate her birthday as she had hoped with a big bash. But she will spend the day with daughter Keeley and youngest grand-daughter Rosie, who turned one in May.

Reflecting on her own age, the gran-of-three says: I have been on this earth for 70 years. Doesnt that sound weird?

The thing is how the hell did I get to number seven? When I got to number six I was gobsmacked. But you know what? A lot of people dont get to number seven, so how lucky am I?

Ive got a wonderful family and Ive had a fabulous career. My family are my life blood, I breathe for them.

And Im healthy, thank God. When you moan and groan about getting older and I do, all the time I tell myself my great grandmother, grandmother and my mum all lived until their eighties and nineties. So I am on a good wicket there arent I?

Sherrie admits she sometimes envies her daughters family life.

She says: Ive been on stage since I was four and, when I look back, my whole life has been my career.

I have no regrets, except that I would have had more children, given the chance. Keeley is at home with her three and I never had the privilege to do that. I was working so much.

But instead of dwelling on the past, Sherrie is determined to look ahead from now on. She says: At 70, I am still finding out who I am and what I want to do with my life.

Fat Transfer and Stromal Vascular fraction

We are increasingly using fat along with concentrated platelet rich plasma as a natural lipo filler to add volume where there has been for fat loss and to help with skin rejuvenation.

Fat is the bodys major source of mesenchymal stem cells, which are considered multi-potent, as they have the ability to differentiate themselves into a number of different types of stem cells that are useful for regeneration, tissue repair and wound healing. PRP is used to promote cell growth and collagen production, so is extremely useful for Creping and thinning skin.

Combined they make the perfect treatment to regenerate and rejuvenate and replace lost volume due to ageing.

What is it? An all-natural alternative incision free facelift

Downtime? 0-24 hours

How long does it last? Up to five years

Where can I get it? http://www.harleystreetskinclinic.com 0207 436 4441

How much is it? FROM 3,950

Scientists at the Salk Institute Came Across a Possible Way to Slow Down Aging – Gilmore Health News

By daniellenierenberg

Arteries and veins are the blood vessels that help transport blood and nutrients in the body. Each type of blood vessel has its own specific structure and set of features that enable the functioning of blood vessels at an optimal level.

For example, arteries, which are the vessels responsible for carrying oxygenated blood from the heart to the rest of the body are generally thick and more elastic than their counterpart, veins. Veins carry the deoxygenated blood from the body back to the heart and are generally thinner than arteries.

It is important to note that the thickness or thinness of the blood vessel refers to the wall size and the diameter of the vessel.

The blood vessels over time become less elastic and can be calcified over time. This is referred to as an age-related change, something everyone goes through. The entire body undergoes these types of changes as one ages. Most of the changes are associated with the general weakness of body physiology. Over time, these changes, after being affected by comorbidities can be severely detrimental to an individuals health.

As people age, the blood vessels in the body become weak and less elastic. This weakness presents in the form of leakiness. Furthermore, the loss of elasticity results in rigid and hardened vessels. All of this can result in serious consequences to ones health.

Hence, making blood vessels an important topic of research, However, this research topic comes riddled with limitations as the study of blood vessels requires a sample which can only be obtained in an invasive manner. This is not a suitable method for long term research and study of blood vessels and the effect of age on them has been performed using pluripotent stem cells.

The use of stem cells by researchers leads to the second limitation in this field of research. Stem cells are the undifferentiated cells in the embryonic stage that can differentiate into any other type of cells. These are the cells that all humans start off as. However, differentiating them into cells of the blood vessels to study them further doesnt provide the results scientists hoped for.

Martin Hetzer, Salks vice president and chief science officer is the head of the new research in which he and his team claim to have found a solution to this problem. However, in 2015, Hetzer was in the team that initially used stem cells to form cells of the blood vessels. The limitation of this study was that the blood vessel formed had no age-markers and was brand new and couldnt be studied for the effects of aging on blood vessels.

A recent study published in the eLife Journal in September 2020, performed by a team of scientists from Salk headed by Hetzer found that using fibroblasts may be more useful than pluripotent stem cells. Fibroblasts, a type of cells in the connective tissue, were derived from skin cells and used in this study to form induced vascular endothelial cells (iVECs) and induced smooth muscle cells (iSMCs)

For this study, researchers used skin cells from three groups of subjects; young subjects between the ages of 19 and 30 years, older subjects between the ages of 62 and 87 years, and patients suffering from Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS), an accelerated aging disorder.

Three samples from young subjects, three from older subjects, and 8 from patients affected by Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome were taken and stimulated to develop into iVECs and iSMCs.

Hetzer and his team found that these iVECs and iSMCs had all the age-markers and showed different genetic expression dependant on age. This helped the researchers find genes and proteins associated with aging and age-related effects on blood vessels.

One such protein, namely BMP4, was found in higher amounts in the samples from older individuals and the iSMCs from the HGPS patients. Researchers assumed that this protein might be the reason for the accelerated aging seen in HGPS.

To test their hypothesis, they used antibodies against BMP4 in volunteers with vascular disease. Hetzer and the team found that blocking BMP4 in these volunteers resulted in lesser vascular leaking, a feature of vascular disease. This finding is being recommended by the researchers as the new target for the treatment of HGPS or progeria.

Hetzer and his team aim to continue working on this to isolate the genes associated with aging and the exact mechanism of them, especially at the molecular level.

New Data Further Reinforce Genentech’s Ocrevus (ocrelizumab) as a Highly Effective Treatment for People With Multiple Sclerosis – BioSpace

By daniellenierenberg

Sept. 11, 2020 05:00 UTC

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Genentech, a member of the Roche Group (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX: RHHBY), today announced new data that show Ocrevus (ocrelizumab) is a highly effective treatment option for people with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) who experienced a suboptimal response to their prior disease modifying therapy (DMT). Subgroup analysis from the two-year open-label Phase IIIb CASTING study also demonstrates that patients benefit across a wide range of disease related and demographic subgroups, regardless of prior treatment background. Findings will be presented at MSVirtual2020, the 8th Joint Meeting of the Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ACTRIMS) and the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS).

For a wide range of people with MS who experienced a suboptimal response to prior treatment, we continue to see evidence that Ocrevus provides significant benefit in slowing disease progression, said Levi Garraway, M.D., Ph.D., chief medical officer and head of Global Product Development. New real-world Ocrevus data show high persistence and adherence to the only B-cell therapy with a twice-yearly dosing schedule, which we know can be very important to both people with MS and their physicians.

Phase IIIb open-label CASTING study

Approximately 75% of RRMS patients (492/658) had no evidence of disease activity (NEDA; brain lesions, relapses and worsening of disability) two years after switching to twice-yearly Ocrevus treatment (with prespecified MRI re-baselining at 8 weeks) in the primary analysis of the CASTING study. Patients enrolled in the study had prior suboptimal response to at least six months of treatment with up to two DMTs. The analysis also showed the proportion of patients achieving NEDA remained consistently high across all measured patient subgroups, including baseline MRI activity, relapse activity, disability level, age and the number of prior DMTs. Further, 78% of patients treated with only one prior DMT compared with 70% of patients treated with two prior DMTs achieved NEDA.

Additionally, patients treated with Ocrevus experienced an improvement in the majority of symptoms measured by SymptoMScreen after two years. SymptoMScreen is a patient-reported outcome tool to assess symptom severity across twelve domains. The most pronounced significant improvements (p<0.001) were seen in sensory symptoms, fatigue and vision, which are important for daily living.

CONFIDENCE real-world safety study

A 97% treatment persistence for Ocrevus patients at 18 months, and strong adherence to infusions every six months, was seen in an interim analysis of more than 1,600 patients in the ongoing German CONFIDENCE study. Separate data from a U.S. commercial claims database that support high persistence and sustained adherence to Ocrevus treatment will also be presented.

Ocrevus longer-term safety data

New safety data as of January 2020 will be presented, representing 5,680 patients with RMS and PPMS and 18,218 patient-years of exposure to Ocrevus, across all Ocrevus clinical trials. These findings further demonstrate the consistently favorable benefit:risk profile of Ocrevus over seven years.

With rapidly growing real-world experience and more than 170,000 people treated globally, Ocrevus has twice-yearly (six-monthly) dosing and is the first and only therapy approved for RMS (including relapsing-remitting MS [RRMS] and active, or relapsing, secondary progressive MS [SPMS], in addition to clinically isolated syndrome [CIS] in the U.S.) and primary progressive MS (PPMS). Ocrevus is approved in 92 countries across North America, South America, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, as well as in Australia, Switzerland and the European Union.

About multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease that affects nearly one million people in the United States, for which there is currently no cure. MS occurs when the immune system abnormally attacks the insulation and support around nerve cells (myelin sheath) in the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves, causing inflammation and consequent damage. This damage can cause a wide range of symptoms, including muscle weakness, fatigue and difficulty seeing, and may eventually lead to disability. Most people with MS experience their first symptom between 20 and 40 years of age, making the disease the leading cause of non-traumatic disability in younger adults.

Relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS) is the most common form of the disease and is characterized by episodes of new or worsening signs or symptoms (relapses) followed by periods of recovery. Approximately 85 percent of people with MS are initially diagnosed with RRMS. The majority of people who are diagnosed with RRMS will eventually transition to secondary progressive MS (SPMS), in which they experience steadily worsening disability over time. Relapsing forms of MS (RMS) include people with RRMS and people with SPMS who continue to experience relapses. Primary progressive MS (PPMS) is a debilitating form of the disease marked by steadily worsening symptoms but typically without distinct relapses or periods of remission. Approximately 15 percent of people with MS are diagnosed with the primary progressive form of the disease. Until the FDA approval of Ocrevus, there had been no FDA approved treatments for PPMS.

People with all forms of MS experience disease activity inflammation in the nervous system and permanent loss of nerve cells in the brain even when their clinical symptoms arent apparent or dont appear to be getting worse. An important goal of treating MS is to reduce disease activity as soon as possible to slow how quickly a persons disability progresses. Despite available disease-modifying treatments (DMTs), some people with RMS continue to experience disease activity and disability progression.

About Ocrevus (ocrelizumab)

Ocrevus is the first and only therapy approved for both RMS (including clinically isolated syndrome, RRMS and active, or relapsing, SPMS) and PPMS, with dosing every six months. Ocrevus is a humanized monoclonal antibody designed to target CD20-positive B cells, a specific type of immune cell thought to be a key contributor to myelin (nerve cell insulation and support) and axonal (nerve cell) damage. This nerve cell damage can lead to disability in people with MS. Based on preclinical studies, Ocrevus binds to CD20 cell surface proteins expressed on certain B cells, but not on stem cells or plasma cells, suggesting that important functions of the immune system may be preserved.

Ocrevus is administered by intravenous infusion every six months. The initial dose is given as two 300 mg infusions given two weeks apart. Subsequent doses are given as single 600 mg infusions.

Study Identifies New Set of Genes That May Explain Why People with Down Syndrome Have a Higher Risk of Leukemia – DocWire News

By daniellenierenberg

A study which appeared in the journal Oncotarget sheds light on why people with Down syndrome are at higher risk of Leukemia. Researchers pinpointed a new set of genes overexpressed in endothelial cells of individuals with Down syndrome, thus creating an environment conducive for leukemia.

Down syndrome occurs in approximately in one in 700 babies, and individuals with the syndrome not only development physical impairments, they have a greatly augmented risk of developing leukemia. Specifically, people with Down syndrome have a 500-fold risk of developing acute megakaryoblastic leukemia (AMKL) and a 20-fold risk of being diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

In this study, researchers used skin samples from patients with Down syndrome to create induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC). They subsequently differentiated the iPSC cells into that were then endothelial cells. The researchers observed that the endothelial cell genetic expression produced altered endothelial function throughout cell maturation. We found that Down syndrome, or Trisomy 21, has genome-wide implications that place these individuals at higher risk for leukemia, says co-lead author Mariana Perepitchka, BA, Research Associate at the Manne Research Institute at Lurie Childrens via a press release. We discovered an increased expression of leukemia-promoting genes and decreased expression of genes involved in reducing inflammation. These genes were not located on chromosome 21, which makes them potential therapeutic targets for leukemia even for people without Down syndrome.

Our discovery of leukemia-conducive gene expression in endothelial cells could open new avenues for cancer research, said co-lead author Yekaterina Galat, BS, Research Associate at the Manne Research Institute at Lurie Childrens.

Fortunately, advances in iPSC technology have provided us with an opportunity to study cell types, such as endothelial cells, that are not easily attainable from patients, stated senior author Vasil Galat, PhD, Director of Human iPS and Stem Cell Core at Manne Research Institute at Lurie Childrens and Research Assistant Professor of Pathology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. If our results are confirmed, we may have new gene targets for developing novel leukemia treatments and prevention.

Can High Blood Sugar Haunt People with Diabetes Even After it is Under Control? – BioSpace

By daniellenierenberg

Yes, even your metabolism has a memory and it can hold a grudge for years. In people with diabetes, periods of high blood sugar can negatively impact their health years later, even if they get their blood sugar under control. While this metabolic memory phenomenon has been known for years, why it happens is poorly understood.

Rama Natarajan, Ph.D., Professor and Chair of the Department of Diabetes Complications & Metabolism at City of Hope, turned to our epigenome for the answer.

Weve shown the first link between DNA methylation in blood and stems cells, blood sugar history, and future development of complications, said Natarajan. This highlights the importance of good glycemic control to prevent long-term complications.

The history of metabolic memory

We now know high blood sugar can lead to a variety of complications, including eye disease, kidney disease, nerve problems, heart disease, and stroke. But the relationship between strict blood sugar control and complication risk wasnt well understood before the 1980s.

Back in 1983, the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) began tracking complications in 1,441 participants with type 1 diabetes. Researchers compared the occurrence of long-term complications between participants who tightly regulated their blood glucose levels to those who followed less strict standard regulation.

After 10 years, the difference was striking the risk of diabetic complications was reduced in participants who tightly regulated their blood sugar but not in those following standard regulation. In other words, a person with higher blood sugar had a higher risk of complications.

To continue following the DCCT patients, the Epidemiology of Diabetes Interventions and Complications (EDIC) follow-up trial began at the end of DCCT in 1993 and is ongoing. At the end of DCCT, all participants were encouraged to adopt strict blood sugar regulation; many in the standard regulation group did.

Despite blood sugar regulation being very similar in all the patients (as measured by hemoglobin A1c, called HbA1c), differences persisted between the two original intervention groups. The phenomenon of long-term effects from high or variable blood sugar control is called metabolic memory (or the legacy effect in type 2 diabetes).

Complications resulted from total high blood sugar exposure it didnt matter whether the person was exposed to slightly elevated levels over a long time or high levels over a short time.

So, what caused the sweet sugar molecule to become so destructive?

Sugary destruction

Extra sugar in your blood can interact with your cells, DNA, and proteins, adding itself onto things it shouldnt be on through a process called glycation. In fact, HbA1c can be thought of as sugar-coated red blood cells.

The sugar-coated molecules cant function as well, if at all, and the damage begins a self-perpetuating cycle. Not only do these damaged molecules stop working, they can also accumulate in the skin, eyes, and other organs, causing damage. Build-up of sugar-coated molecules can trigger the creation of harmful free radicals, causing oxidative stress and feeding a destructive cycle.

Although sugar can directly modify molecules, it can also trigger other epigenetic modifications. These modifications can control how genes are expressed, changing protein levels in cells.

There hasnt been a strong genetic association with diabetic complications very few genetic mutations have been strongly linked to complications, Natarajan explained. But we knew the epigenome is what makes identical twins different and can have implications into why one gets diabetes or cancer and the other doesnt. So, we turned our focus to epigenetics.

Epigenetics and diabetes

Natarajan sought to explain the long-term sugary destruction wrought by high blood sugar by searching the epigenome. Her lab specifically looks for one type of modification called DNA methylation, where a tiny molecule called a methyl group is added onto DNA.

Epigenetics is the coating on top of genetics that can be altered by environmental influences, Natarajan said. We started focusing on the role of epigenetics in developing diabetes and its complications because we know that lifestyles, improper diet, lack of exercise, and even viruses can affect epigenetics.

Natarajans lab began collaborating with the DCCT trial group, analyzing data collected through the trial for epigenetic clues to explain the metabolic memory of complications. They found more modifications associated with active genes on proteins called histones that are wrapped by DNA in participants with regular blood sugar control compared to the strict controllers. Even more interesting was that many epigenetic DNA methylation variations between the two groups persisted through at least 17 years of follow-up in the EDIC study.

These changes were in important genes related to complications, showing something about persistent epigenetic programming in peripheral blood cells, commented Natarajan. Previous high blood sugar episodes could be a key factor in why these genes were continually misbehaving.

Now, Natarajans lab illuminated even more links between epigenetic changes, blood sugar history, and metabolic memory in their recent Nature Metabolism paper. Persistent epigenetic modifications of a few key genes were detected in participants with previously less regulated blood sugar who developed either retinopathy or nephropathy. They showed that DNA methylation is a key link between a patients HbA1c history, metabolic memory, and development of future complications.

Many HbA1c-associated modifications were in stem cells and the blood cells they create. Even though blood cells are turned over relatively quickly, stem cells stick around for a long-time, so changes in stem cells can have long-term consequences.

The important thing we found was the connection to stem cells, explained Natarajan. Were asking how these changes alter inflammatory gene expression and how we can interrupt those pathways.

Sugar-modified genes arent so sweet

Natarajans lab sorted through all the modified genes to find the most common modifications in participants with less strict blood sugar control. The most commonly modified gene coded for thioredoxin-interacting protein (TxNIP).

TxNIP is not a new protein, but the discovery that its DNA methylation is altered by different glycemic control is new, Natarajan added.

Thioredoxin-interacting protein is known to be highly regulated in certain pancreas cells, called beta cells, that release insulin. The plot thickened when high blood sugar was found to increase TxNIP protein production. Even more interesting, high TxNIP protein levels make beta-cells dysfunctional, ultimately leading to their untimely death. So, high blood sugar triggers more TxNIP to be produced, possibly through epigenetic modifications of the TxNIP gene, which ultimately leads to the death of insulin-producing beta cells.

Showing that the TxNIP gene can be epigenetically modified for years and years suggests that it could be one of the culprits causing long-term problems in diabetes, Natarajan said.

The proteins that TxNIP interacts with, called thioredoxins, protect against oxidative stress. TxNIP can bind to and inactivate thioredoxin to increase oxidative stress by increasing reactive oxygen species (ROS). In mouse cells in a dish, high glucose exposure triggered increased ROS levels mediated by TxNIP, leading to oxidative stress. Oxidative stress can trigger cell and organ damage, so this could be one mechanism explaining diabetes-induced damage.

Her lab also found epigenetic changes in other genes related to inflammation and inflammation-related processes.

Next steps and clinical implications

Natarajans lab is continuing to study the link between blood sugar history, epigenetics, and other complications of diabetes. They are also expanding their scope, searching the entire genome for more epigenetic modifications linked with past blood sugar maintenance.

This study also lays the groundwork for further studies with meaningful clinical implications, including developing epigenetic biomarkers for diabetic complications. In the future, Natarajan says a simple blood test looking at key epigenetic modifications, along with HbA1c history, could be used to predict future risk of retinopathy, nephropathy, and neuropathy. This would allow the doctor to figure out who should have early and more aggressive treatment to mitigate complication risk.

While these studies were done in type 1 diabetes patients, other studies in type 2 diabetes patients have shown similar epigenetic modifications after history of higher blood sugar levels.

Turning knowledge into potential drugs

What about doing something about the epigenetic modifications can we remove them? As a matter of fact, yes!

There is an interesting new type of experimental drug on the horizon called epigenetic editing. The hot new technology CRISPR isnt just for cutting out chunks of DNA or controlling genes it can also be used to insert or remove epigenetic modifications. While this technology is still experimental and in early preclinical animal studies, the potential is very exciting.

A CRISPR/enzyme pair can be used the CRISPR genetic material can hunt down the genetic spot you want to change; and the attached enzyme can snip or add certain molecules to the DNA, effectively removing or creating an epigenetic modification, thereby activating or silencing the targeted gene.

Enzymes such as methyltransferase or demethylase can add or remove methyl groups from genes. Because they just change what is on the gene or histone wrapped around it (not the genetic sequence itself), the gene itself isnt tampered with, meaning there could be less genetic complications associated with CRISPR epigenetic editing.

This is a futuristic thing, Natarajan concluded. The combination of genetics and epigenetics is going to be the future of personalized medicine.

Scientists May Have Discovered a Way to to Slow Aging by Direct Reprogramming of Human Cells – SciTechDaily

By daniellenierenberg

Salk study is the first to reveal ways cells from the human circulatory system change with age and age-related diseases.

Salk scientists have used skin cells called fibroblasts from young and old patients to successfully create blood vessels cells that retain their molecular markers of age. The teams approach, described in the journal eLife on September 8, 2020, revealed clues as to why blood vessels tend to become leaky and hardened with aging, and lets researchers identify new molecular targets to potentially slow aging in vascular cells.

The vasculature is extremely important for aging but its impact has been underestimated because it has been difficult to study how these cells age, says Martin Hetzer, the papers senior author and Salks vice president and chief science officer.

Research into aging vasculature has been hampered by the fact that collecting blood vessel cells from patients is invasive, but when blood vessel cells are created from special stem cells called induced pluripotent stem cells, age-related molecular changes are wiped clean. So, most knowledge about how blood vessel cells age comes from observations of how the blood vessels themselves change over time: veins and arteries become less elastic, thickening and stiffening. These changes can contribute to blood pressure increases and a heightened risk of heart disease with age.

In 2015, Hetzer was part of the team led by Salk President Rusty Gage to show that fibroblasts could be directly reprogrammed into neurons, skipping the induced pluripotent stem cell stage that erased the cells aging signatures. The resulting brain cells retained their markers of age, letting researchers study how neurons change with age.

In the new work, Hetzer and his colleagues applied the same direct-conversion approach to create two types of vasculature cells: vascular endothelial cells, which make up the inner lining of blood vessels, and the smooth muscle cells that surround these endothelial cells.

We are among the first to use this technique to study the aging of the vascular system, says Roberta Schulte, the Hetzer lab coordinator and co-first author of the paper. The idea of developing both of these cell types from fibroblasts was out there, but we tweaked the techniques to suit our needs.

The researchers used skin cells collected from three young donors, aged 19 to 30 years old, three older donors, 62 to 87 years old, and 8 patients with Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS), a disorder of accelerated, premature aging often used to study aging.

The resulting induced vascular endothelial cells (iVECs) and induced smooth muscle cells (iSMCs) showed clear signatures of age. 21 genes were expressed at different levels in the iSMCs from old and young people, including genes related to the calcification of blood vessels. 9 genes were expressed differently according to age in the iVECs, including genes related to inflammation. In patients with HGPS, some genes reflected the same expression patterns usually seen in older people, while other patterns were unique. In particular, levels of BMP-4 protein, which is known to play a role in the calcification of blood vessel, were slightly higher in aged cells compared to younger cells, but more significantly higher in smooth muscle cells from progeria patients. This suggests that the protein is particularly important in accelerated aging.

The results not only hinted at how and why blood vessels change with age, but confirmed that the direct-conversion method of creating vascular endothelial and smooth muscle cells from patient fibroblasts allowed the cells to retain any age-related changes.

One of the biggest theoretical implications of this study is that we now know we can longitudinally study a single patient during aging or during the course of a treatment and study how their vasculature is changing and how we might be able to target that, says Simone Bersini, a Salk postdoctoral fellow and co-first author of the paper.

To test the utility of the new observations, the researchers tested whether blocking BMP4 which had been present at higher levels in smooth muscle cells developed from people with HGPS could help treat aging blood vessels. In smooth muscle cells from donors with vascular disease, antibodies blocking BMP4 lowered levels of vascular leakiness one of the changes that occurs in vessels with aging.

The findings point toward new therapeutic targets for treating both progeria and the normal age-related changes that can occur in the human vascular system. They also illustrate that the direct conversion of fibroblasts to other mature cell types previously successful in neurons and, now, in vascular cells is likely useful for studying a wide range of aging processes in the body.

By repeating what was done with neurons, weve demonstrated that this direct reprogramming is a powerful tool that can likely be applied to many cell types to study aging mechanisms in all sorts of other human tissues, says Hetzer, holder of the Jesse and Caryl Philips Foundation Chair.

The team is planning future studies to probe the exact molecular mechanisms by which some of the genes they found to change with age control the changes seen in the vasculature.

Got uneven skin tone? There’s a cult natural range with vitamin C that’s changing the game. – Mamamia

By daniellenierenberg

As we move into spring, the seasonal change and being indoors more often can leave our skin feeling a little lacklustre.

If you've also got uneven skin tone, you might find yourself reaching for vitamin C products to bring that long-lost glow back to your skin. (I know I have.)

Yep, you know what I mean - dull spots or patches that make an unwelcome visit on your face. Somuch fun.

You've probably seen a few skincare ranges with vitamin C as a key ingredient, but some have harsh and unnatural chemicals too. In fact, slathering harsh chemicals on your face to try achieve a more radiant, even complexion can do more harm than good if you're not exactly sure what you're putting onto your skin.

That's why Andalou Naturals' Brightening range is the perfect example of a high-performance cult natural skincare range that addresses concerns like uneven skin tone and pigmentation, all while using potent, vitamin C-rich ingredients that pack some serious punch. Oh, it's cruelty-free too.

According to a recent trial*, 86 per cent of people saw a more radiant and luminous complexion, while 73 per cent saw a more even skin tone and reduced pigmentation in 28 days when using Andalou's Brightening Range.

It's been so high in demand that the famous Brightening Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Face Mask, which Mamamia reviewed back in April, recently sold out on their website(it's back now, thankfully). While they can't make their pumpkins grow any faster, if you can't get it online you can also get it from your local Chemist Warehouse or Priceline.

You've probably seen the Andalou's Brightening Range popping up on your Instagram, with model Natalia Kalinowski, author and lifestlye influencer Sjana Elise Earp, and model and lifestyle influencer Ruby Tuesday Matthews, all singing its praises.
