Novel Research Shows Immunosuppressant delaying Skin Aging

New research finds an immunosuppressant that delays skin aging

People often use skin care products or dietary supplements to keep their skin young. A new US study says that the immunosuppressive drug rapamycin is expected to become a new option to delay skin aging. Rapamycin is commonly used to prevent rejection after organ transplantation. Previous studies have shown that the drug can delay the aging of mice, fruit flies, nematodes and other animals. New research has found that regular application of rapamycin on the skin can reduce skin wrinkles and sagging and improve skin tone.

 

New Research Proving Immunosuppressant to delay Skin Aging

The Drexel University issued a communiqué saying that in a small clinical trial, researchers at the school recruited 36 subjects over the age of 40 and asked them to smear the mine on one hand every 1 to 2 days. Pamomycin cream, placebo on the other hand as a control.

The research team inspected the subjects every two months and conducted blood tests and biopsies on the subjects by the sixth and eighth months of the trial.


Rapamycin Cream Increased Skin Collagen

Thirteen subjects completed the 8-month trial. The results showed that the vast majority of the 13 people who had applied rapamycin cream had increased collagen on the skin, while a protein called p16 had significantly reduced levels. It is known that p16 protein is related to cellular stress response.

When a gene mutation occurs in a cell, tumor may form. P16 protein can inhibit tumor growth by regulating the cell cycle, but this process will also accelerate cell aging.

 


Rapamycin works by inhibiting the target protein of rapamycin

Related papers were recently published in the American Journal of Geriatrics. The researchers say that rapamycin works by inhibiting the target protein of rapamycin, which is an important regulator of human cell metabolism, production and aging.

Researchers believe that rapamycin is a potential anti-aging drug. Next, they will continue to study whether rapamycin can be used to extend human life or improve human function.

Difference Between COVID-19 Coronavirus and Other Flu Epidemic Infections

What are the differences between COVID-19 and the flu epidemic?The epidemic caused by the new Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is still spreading. This disease, which has just been officially named COVID-19, has caused more than 40,000 infections and more than 1,000 deaths. At the same time, on the other side of the ocean, another epidemic also attracted people's attention. The flu season in the United States is on schedule. 
According to data released by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as of February 1, 22 million to 31 million people are expected to be infected during the flu season, and the number of patients dying from influenza is between 12,000 and 30,000. 
Seeing such figures, some readers may be surprised when they think: Is the flu epidemic in the United States worse? What are the differences between COVID-19 and the flu epidemic? Is this really the case? What are the differences between COVID-19 and the flu epidemic?
The facts are being unraveled below: 1. Unknown ris…

FDA Launches New Website to Encourage COVID-19 Rehabilitation Patients to Donate Plasma

According to foreign media TechCrunch, one of the ways currently being sought to develop effective treatments for COVID-19 is to use convalescent plasma. Basically, this means using plasma from COVID-19 patients who have fully recovered, hoping to transfer the antibodies they produced during the fight against the virus to others. 

US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) creates dedicated website to seek recovery plasma donationsThe US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has created a dedicated new website that seeks recovery plasma donations from COVID-19 rehabilitation patients and explains their potential uses.
The use of plasma during recovery is hardly a new concept. In fact, it has been used since the late 1890s and was used during the Spanish influenza pandemic in 1918, although "the results were mixed."
Modern methods can help improve the efficacy and potential of recovered plasma as a therapeutic method. There are currently some drugs under development that use plasma (ani…
