BJ-5ta Exosomes Clarified: A Breakthrough Defense Against UVB-Induced Skin Aging

A newly published paper by researchers from the Republic of Korea reveals the promising potential of BJ-5ta Exosomes in combating the adverse effects of UVB radiation on the skin. Exosomes, tiny vesicles with transformative properties, have long been recognized as innovative treatment options for various skin conditions, including aging, atopic dermatitis, and wounds. However, the…

Revealing Fundamental Molecular Mechanisms of Aging and Lifespan Extension

Despite centuries of medical research, pivotal questions about aging persist. A recent study by German scientists, published in Nature, suggests breakthrough insights into these questions. Researchers from the University of Cologne and Max Plank Institute for Biology of Aging, revealed an age-related acceleration in gene transcription coupled with reduced precision and increased errors. They reported…

Sun Exposure Impact on Skin Microbiota Composition in Holidaymakers

The skin microbiota plays a crucial role in maintaining epidermal homeostasis. Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) and other environmental challenges can impact the skin microbiota through direct and indirect mechanisms. In their study, Abigail K. Langton from the University of Manchester and her team, aimed to investigate the effects of sun exposure on the skin microbiota and…

Bacteriophages and Microbiome in Dermatology: Potential Therapeutic Strategy

News release, Skin Challenges Task Force – July 24 Bacteriophages, also known as phages, are viruses that selectively target and infect bacteria. In addition to bacterial dysbiosis, dermatologic conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and atopic dermatitis are characterized by a relative reduction in the abundance of phages and the overgrowth of the corresponding bacteria. Phages…

“Unexpected” – Scientists Discover an Anti-Aging Mechanism

The mechanism extends the life of the immune system.  A multinational team headed by University College London scientists has discovered a new mechanism that slows down and maybe even prevents the normal aging of immune cells, one of the nine “hallmarks of aging.” The discovery in-vitro (cells) and validated in mice was “unexpected,” according to the researchers,…

In-cytoplasm Mitochondrial Transplantation for Stem Cells Engineering & Tissue Regeneration

Representative images of the wound area (left) and the corresponding fractions of wounds healed (right) by different treatments. News Release, Skin Aging & Challenges – August 31, 2022 Stem cell therapies are unsatisfactory due to poor cell survival and engraftment. Stem cells used for therapy must be properly “tuned” for a harsh in vivo environment.…

Skin Cells Made Up To 40 Years Younger with New “Rejuvenation” Technique

Aging is the gradual decline in cell and tissue function over time. It is characterized by various factors, including telomere attrition, genetic instability, and misfolded proteins. The progression of some age-related changes can be measured and used to predict age in humans. Induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) reprogramming is a process in which any cell can be converted into an…
