Life expectancy is the expected (in the statistical sense) number of years of life remaining at a given age. It is denoted by e''x'', which means the average number of subsequent years of life for someone now aged ''x'', according to a particular mortality experience.
The University of Michigan Department of Neurosurgery and Rogel Cancer Center study demonstrates enticing early results that a therapy merging cell-killing and immune-stimulating drugs is effective and safe in prolonging survival for patients with gliomas, an extremely aggressive form of brain cancer.
Multiple myeloma is a rare blood cancer caused by the uncontrolled multiplication of abnormal plasma cells.
Cold activates a cellular cleansing mechanism that breaks down harmful protein aggregations responsible for various diseases associated with aging.
Investors include Cambridge Angels, Meltwind, o2h Ventures, SyndicateRoom, and Angel investors, with support from KPMG Acceleris.
Unlike humans and other mammals, which become less fertile with age, naked mole-rats can reproduce throughout their remarkably long lifespans.
Researchers at the University of Sussex are using Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to analyze different types of cancer cells to understand different gene dependencies, and to identify genes that are critical to a cell's survival.
Researchers at the University of Waterloo have created a computational model to predict the growth of deadly brain tumors more accurately.
Numerous candidate genes that affect longevity have recently been found, according to research from the Interventions Testing Program, which is supported by the National Institute on Aging (NIA).
The in-built mechanism of recycling dead or poisonous material to preserve the health of human cells is critical to general health.
New advancements in the transplantation of stem cell-derived insulin-producing beta cells to cure type 1 diabetes have created substantial curiosity.

Professor Yuichi Oike and his group of researchers recently produced a peptide vaccine that mitigates conditions of dyslipidemia.
A targeted drug has shown promising activity against brain metastases resulting from kidney cancer, achieving a 50 percent response rate, and supporting further studies of the drug in this patient group whose poor prognosis has created a significant unmet need.
Natto is a fermented soybean dish usually served by the Japanese for breakfast. Although it actually originated at the turn of the last millennium, it could be the key to a modern problem—COVID-19—reports a new cell-culture-based study.
A study led by Fernando Colchero, University of Southern Denmark and Susan Alberts, Duke University, North Carolina, that included researchers from 42 institutions across 14 countries, provides new insights into the aging theory "the invariant rate of aging hypothesis", which states that every species has a relatively fixed rate of aging.
ALS is a very severe neurodegenerative disease in which nerve cells in the spinal cord controlling muscles and movement slowly die.
Aging is associated with an overall decline in health and increased frailty, and is a major risk factor for multiple chronic diseases.
Even a single letter variation in a single gene, acquired from both parents, could mean a lifetime of pain and anemia for 20 million individuals across the world.
The majority of organisms feature the series of ENDOU enzymes, but despite this fact, the functions of these enzymes have not been properly understood.
Researchers have successfully used a DNA-editing technique to extend the lifespan of mice with the genetic variation associated with progeria, a rare genetic disease that causes extreme premature aging in children and can significantly shorten their life expectancy.
