    Transient rapamycin treatment can increase lifespan and healthspan in middle-aged mice

    Alessandro Bitto et al.
    Three months treatment with the drug rapamycin increases lifespan, alters cancer prevalence, remodels the microbiome, and improves functional measures of health in middle aged mice in a dose- and sex-dependent manner.

    Germline burden of rare damaging variants negatively affects human healthspan and lifespan

    Anastasia V Shindyapina et al.
    Rare highly damaging mutations that are present in most human genomes decrease lifespan and are associated with an earlier onset of chronic diseases.

    Selenium supplementation inhibits IGF-1 signaling and confers methionine restriction-like healthspan benefits to mice

    Jason D Plummer et al.
    Dietary selenium supplementation confers to mice all of the short-term healthspan benefits of the longevity-promoting intervention methionine restriction, and thus may represent a method to promote healthy aging in mammals.

    Adiponectin preserves metabolic fitness during aging

    Na Li et al.
    Adiponectin is an essential regulator for healthspan and is indispensable for sustaining a normal lifespan.

    Ovariectomy uncouples lifespan from metabolic health and reveals a sex-hormone-dependent role of hepatic mTORC2 in aging

    Sebastian I Arriola Apelo et al.
    Metabolic health and longevity can be separated by ovariectomy, which also protects female mice lacking hepatic mTORC2 from midlife mortality.

    The ribosomal RNA m5C methyltransferase NSUN-1 modulates healthspan and oogenesis in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Clemens Heissenberger et al.
    In nematode worms, NSUN-1 methylates ribosomal RNA and influences phenotypes related to aging, stress resistance, germ line development, and cuticle integrity by regulating translation of specific mRNAs.

    Metformin extends C. elegans lifespan through lysosomal pathway

    Jie Chen et al.
    Metformin extends C. elegans lifespan through lysosome-dependent coordination of TORC1 and AMPK pathways.

    Changes in ferrous iron and glutathione promote ferroptosis and frailty in aging Caenorhabditis elegans

    Nicole L Jenkins et al.
    As worms age reduced glutathione together with increased ferrous iron increases frailty and leads to ferroptosis, which is amenable to therapeutic intervention.

    A cross-sectional study of functional and metabolic changes during aging through the lifespan in male mice

    Michael A Petr et al.
    A comprehensive cross-sectional assessment reveals functional decline in mice consistent with increased energetic cost of physical activity with age through metabolic rewiring in multiple organs.

    Aging: Searching for the genetic key to a long and healthy life

    Joris Deelen
    A study of over 40,000 individuals suggests that carrying a small number of ultra-rare genetic variants is associated with a longer lifespan.
