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.

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.

Sponsor a Student

SENS Research Foundation (SRF) is launching its campaign Sponsor a Student to increase charitable donations that will allow it to hire more student researchers and teach them that aging is not indisputable. Sponsoring a student dramatically transforms a young person’s life, giving them a chance to conduct world-class research and learn more about the career that awaits them.

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.

Viva Viagra? Firmer Methodologies Needed

A recent preprint reports that use of Viagra and related drugs is associated with a lower mortality rate, raising hopes that it might be repurposed as a longevity therapeutic. Unfortunately, the methodology used in this and other recent studies is too weak to arouse too much excitement just yet.

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.
