WHAT'S NEW

New Study Finds Antioxidant Therapy is Key to Combating Cell Aging in Mice

September 20, 2018

WVU’s Eric E. Kelley, Ph.D., and the University of Minnesota’s Laura Niedernhofer, Ph.D., have published a new study in Redox Biology that could change the way we look at aging in humans. Through a new discovery of the main driver of aging in cells, their research shows that it may be possible to slow the aging process. In the 1950’s, Denham Harmon published a groundbreaking theory correlating antioxidants and aging, but since then there have been few findings that validate directly this theory. This new study provides that validation which has been missing.

Insulin Found to Control Cardiac Function Through Reactive Oxygen Species

November 15, 2017

A recent breakthrough by Dr. Thomas Michel of Harvard School of Medicine has shown that insulin impacts the body in a unique way. The study, recently published in FRBM, unveiled an entirely unexpected mechanism whereby insulin-dependent generation of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in cardiac myocytes controls heart contractility and critical cell signaling pathways. These research findings have direct implications for our understanding of diabetic cardiomyopathy, which is a major cause of morbidity and mortality for patients with diabetes.
