Antiaging Vaccine Shown in Mice


A vaccine has been used that helps the body remove zombie cells in some types of tissue in mice. This is initial work that could lead to a better solution to one of the seven major types of aging damage.

Drugs that treat this aging damage problem are called senolytics.

Fightaging describes the recent work which was reported in the journal Nature. SIWA Therapeutics and Deciduous Therapeutics are working to increase the pace at which the immune system clears senescent (zombie malfunctioning) cells.

SIWA Therapeutics has identified a specific set of surface features on senescent cells. It seems likely that there will be variance in such features from tissue to tissue. They will need to have other work to identify senescent cells for different tissue. The current tissue-specific vaccine could treat atherosclerosis.

Superabsorption Progress Towards Quantum Batteries

University of Adelaide and their overseas partners have successfully proved the concept of superabsorption, a crucial idea underpinning quantum batteries. Quantum batteries offer the potential for vastly better thermodynamic efficiency, and ultra-fast charging time, much faster and more efficient than the electrochemical batteries like Nickel Metal Hydride or Lithium Ion, in common use today. By…

NASA’s First-Ever Planetary Defense Test

NASA’s DART (Double Asteroid Redirection Test) targeted the asteroid moonlet Dimorphos, a small body just 530 feet (160 meters) in diameter. It orbits a larger, 2,560-foot (780-meter) asteroid called Didymos. Neither asteroid poses a threat to Earth. The mission’s one-way trip confirmed NASA can successfully navigate a spacecraft to intentionally collide with an asteroid to…
