AmyloSENS Therapies for Alzheimer’s: The Marathon and the Decathlon

The Phase III trials for AmyloSENS rejuvenation biotechnologies lecanemab/Leqembi® and donanemab showed that they are most effective when given to people with less of other kinds of cellular and molecular aging damage in their brains. New data illustrates that fact even more powerfully and gives us a foreshadowing of what’s possible if we make best use of these and forthcoming damage-repair longevity therapeutics.

Do the Hallmarks of Aging Make SENS? (Part Two)

A supporter asks if the Hallmarks of Aging could effectively be substituted for the seven categories of cellular and molecular damage in the SENS platform. The answer is ‘no,’ because the Hallmarks include both too much and too little, and most importantly because the Hallmarks fail to serve as a roadmap toward the biomedical postponement of aging.

Senolytics in Aging Muscle: Could the Cure Be Worse than the Disease?

Skeletal muscles are organized into long fibers, and when a fiber breaks the entire fiber is often lost. This made a supporter worry that senolytic therapies might break a muscle fiber and eliminate precious fibers in aging muscles. It appears that the injury at the heart of the questioner’s worry does not happen in practice.

More Studies on Metformin and Survival

In this update, we review two recent papers that address the question of people with type 2 diabetes who take metformin living longer than people without the disease who don’t, but without the flaw in the 2014 study. We find that, as expected, metformin is a good diabetes drug but shows no sign of being a longevity therapeutic.

Set My Heart Free: Two AmyloSENS Therapies Targeting Cardiac Amyloid in Clinical Trials

TTR cardiac amyloid contributes to heart failure and appears to limit the lives of the longest-lived humans. One AmyloSENS antibody shows high promise to remove this amyloid and restore function in the aging heart in an early-stage clinical trial. A second such antibody is coming close behind it, and a tiny number of people’s immune systems appear to generate such antibodies on their own.

From Parachutes to Jetpacks: Clearing Brain Beta-Amyloid with Donanemab or Lecanemab Works, Though More Must be Done

Another clinical trial has now proven that a second AmyloSENS rejuvenation biotechnology that clears beta-amyloid aggregates from the brain also slows down the slide into dementia in people in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, but this development is only the beginning.

SENSible Question: Billionaires Redux

A supporter raises a new angle on an old concern: might fabulously wealthy people hoard longevity therapeutics for themselves? The context for the question and the motivation behind it are different, but the answer is still “no.” Rejuvenation biotechnology will be widely available to aging people, and SENS Research Foundation will work at the front end and the back end to ensure that access to longevity therapeutics expands as quickly and as widely as possible.

An Oil Change is Not a Gasket Change: Insights from the Interaction of “Old Blood” and Senolytic Therapy

When blood from a biologically aged animal is transfused into a young one, the young animal suffers “pro-aging” effects. By contrast, reducing the burden of “pro-aging” signaling factors in old blood is not enough to remove existing damage from a similar-aged mouse’s biologically aged tissues.
