Glycolytic inhibition: an effective strategy for developing calorie restriction mimetics.

The objective of this review is to describe the approaches directed toward glycolytic inhibition, considered an effective means to invoke a wide range of anti-aging mechanisms induced by CR.

Calorie restriction and dietary restriction mimetics: a strategy for improving healthy aging and longevity.

Calorie restriction with adequate nutrition is the only non-genetic, and the most consistent non-pharmacological intervention that extends lifespan in model organisms from yeast to mammals, and protects against the deterioration of biological functions, delaying or reducing the risk of many age-related diseases.

The use of calorie restriction mimetics to study aging.

This chapter focuses on candidate CRMs including sirtuin-activating compounds (STACs) and mTOR inhibitors, their slowing of aging, and methods for evaluation of lifespan and metabolic disorders.

Calorie Restriction Mimetics: Progress and Potential

This review will weigh the evidence that CRMs can replicate some, if not most, of the same positive biological effects, and attempt to offer as objective an evaluation as possible of the current status of CRMs, and the best opportunities to extend this strategy to human applications.

Diabetes medications as potential calorie restriction mimetics-a focus on the alpha-glucosidase inhibitor acarbose.

Acarbose, an AGI, has been shown in pre-clinical models to increase lifespan (greater longevity benefits in males), with decreased body weight gain independent of calorie intake reduction, and is supported by clinical findings beyond T2D including the risk for other age-related diseases.

Energy restriction and potential energy restriction mimetics

Current scientific literature on ER and its molecular, metabolic and hormonal effects are discussed, and criteria for the classification of substances that might induce positive ER-like changes without having to reduce energy intake are summarised.

Calorie Restriction Mimetics: Upstream-Type Compounds for Modulating Glucose Metabolism

The current knowledge on compounds with CR mimetic (CRM) effects is summarized and their classification as compounds with energy metabolism inhibition effects, particularly glucose metabolism modulation effects is proposed.

Caloric Restriction Mimetics: The Next Phase

The next phase of calorie restriction studies includes basic investigations as well as possible clinical trials of a number of candidate CR mimetics, ranging from glycolytic inhibitors to lipid‐regulating agents to antioxidants and specific gene modulators.

Calorie restriction mimetics: an emerging research field

New research has focused on the development of ‘CR mimetics’, which is to identify compounds that mimic CR effects by targeting metabolic and stress response pathways affected by CR, but without actually restricting caloric intake.

Progress in the Development of Caloric Restriction Mimetic Dietary Supplements

The initial findings reviewed here suggest a novel approach for the investigation of basic mechanisms of aging, in which cells upregulate heat-shock and other chaperone proteins, and growth factors.

Calorie restriction: Decelerating mTOR-driven aging from cells to organisms (including humans)

It is discussed that the anti-aging effect of CR rules out accumulation of DNA damage and failure of maintenance as a cause of aging, and suggests that aging is driven in part by the nutrient-sensing TOR network, thus slowing aging and delaying diseases of aging.

Identification of potential caloric restriction mimetics by microarray profiling.

Results indicate that gene expression biomarkers can be used to identify promising candidate CR mimetics, and metformin has been shown to reduce cancer incidence in mice and humans.

SIRT1, a calorie restriction mimetic, in a new therapeutic approach for type 2 diabetes mellitus and diabetic vascular complications.

This review summarizes current understanding of the biological functions of SIRT1, and discusses its potential as a pharmacological target for fighting metabolic and vascular diseases.

2-Deoxy-D-Glucose Feeding in Rats Mimics Physiologic Effects of Calorie Restriction

Results from CR studies in rhesus monkeys agree with the extensive rodent literature that suggests this intervention can have beneficial effects in primates, and it is unlikely that the 30% to 40% reduction in intake used typically in this paradigm would become a widespread practice in humans.
