Mechanism identified to explain how tea nutrients halt cancer cell replication in the human body via epigenetic changes
5 monthes ago - By Natural News
A recent study published in Human Molecular Genetics revealed that tea consumption resulted in positive epigenetic changes in the body, providing better insight on how the pharmacologically-active components of tea inhibit cancer cell replication. Previous studies have already established that both coffee and tea have the potential in disease-risk management by suppressing tumor progression, reducing inflammation and influencing...

Scientists design protein that prods cancer-fighting T-cells
5 monthes ago - By ScienceDaily
Scientists have created a new protein that mimics a key immune regulatory protein, interleukin 2. IL-2 is a potent anticancer drug, but with toxic side effects. The researchers report using computer programs to design a protein that they have shown in animal models to have the same ability to stimulate cancer-fighting T-cells as IL-2, but without triggering harmful side effects.

‘The results were impressive': Drug to fight aging purges the body of damaged ‘zombie cells'
5 monthes ago - By National Post
A drug to fight aging may finally be on the horizon after the first trials in humans showed “impressive” results.
For many years, scientists have known that an accumulation of senescent cells in the body is linked to aging symptoms such as frailty and arthritis, as well as diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
Senescent cells - also known as zombie cells - are not completely dead, so are not cleared out by the body, but are too damaged to repair tissue or carry out normal functions. Unable to repair itself or clear out the waste, the body gradually deteriorates.
