Melatonin as an Anti-Aging Therapy for Age-Related Cardiovascular and Neurodegenerative Diseases

Melatonin, an endogenous compound naturally synthesized not only by the pineal gland but also by many cell types, may have a key role in the modulation of multiple mechanisms associated with aging, including cardiovascular and neurodegenerative disorders.

The epigenetic clock as a predictor of disease and mortality risk: a systematic review and meta-analysis

The association between DNA methylation age and age-related disease and longevity is inconclusive and positive publication bias needs to be considered, and further research is needed to determine the extent to which DNAmethylation age can be used as a clinical biomarker.

The association between coronary artery disease and osteoporosis: a population-based longitudinal study in Taiwan

A positive association exists between CAD and development of subsequent osteoporotic fracture and OP, and patients with CAD have a significantly increased risk of developing vertebral compression fracture and a higher incident rate ratio of OP.

AMPK Signaling Regulates the Age-Related Decline of Hippocampal Neurogenesis - Wang et al 2019.pdf

Results demonstrate that AMPK signaling plays a critical role in the agerelated decline of hippocampal neurogenesis in the aged hippocampus.

Associations between bone mineral density and coronary artery disease: a meta-analysis of cross-sectional studies

Low BMD was not associated with the prevalence of CAD and without age adjustment, the BMD of CADs is significantly lower than that of non-CADs, and the patients with lower BMD are inclined to more severe coronary artery lesions.

AMP-activated protein kinase-dependent nuclear localization of glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase in senescent human diploid fibroblasts

Increased AMPK activity may play a role in the senescence-associated nuclear translocation of GAPDH in senescent cells.

Geroscience in the Age of COVID-19

Older adults are most vulnerable to hospitalization, disability and death following infection with the novel coronavirus, and therapeutically addressing degenerative aging processes as the main risk factors appears promising for tackling the present crisis.
