NFL Legend Bart Starr Walking Again After Stem Cell Treatment

 Brent Schrotenboer, USA TODAY Sports10:15 p.m. EDT July 22, 2015 (Photo: David J. Phillip, AP) Bart Starr had quite a meal Tuesday morning in Alabama — three pancakes and an omelet with three eggs and cheese. It was made by his wife Cherry, his bride of 61 years. And it didn’t take him long to eat it. “He fed himself the entire breakfast,” Cherry Starr said. “It was great.” It was another small but significant moment for Starr, the legendary former Green Bay Packers quarterback. Before he underwent an experimental stem cell treatment in June, Starr, 81, could barely walk or feed himself. His condition had deteriorated after suffering a heart attack, two strokes and a four seizures in September. But now he can walk and eat unaided, seemingly sparked back to...

THE PALO ALTO LONGEVITY PRIZE – LET’S HACK THE CODE!

The Palo Alto Longevity Prize (the “Prize”) is a $1 million life science competition dedicated to ending aging. Just six decades after Orville and Wilbur Wright launched the aviation age, President Kennedy pronounced a moonshot: fly people to the moon and back. Eight years later, the mission was accomplished. Now, six decades after James Watson and Francis Crick discovered the code of life, it is time to embark on another historic mission: hack the code of life and cure aging. The Palo Alto Longevity Prize (the “Prize”) is a $1 million life science competition dedicated to ending aging. Ours is one of a growing number of initiatives around the world pursuing this goal—the more shots on goal the better. Through an incentive prize, our specific...

Researchers Discover What Lies Behind the Death of Stem Cells

by Francesca Davenport16 September 2014 [caption id="" align="alignright" width="420"] Image showing stem cells dying (in red) due to lack of microRNAs[/caption] The study, recently published in Genes and Development, revealed that small molecules called microRNAs play a key role in controlling the death and survival of pluripotent stem cells. These cells, found in embryos, have the potential to develop into almost any cell in the body, providing a possible source of healthy, renewable cells and tissues that could contribute to the treatment of a range of diseases. Understanding the normal processes that lead to the death of these stem cells could help maximise the benefits of stem cell therapy for diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and stroke and offer important information on how cancer cells...

Emerging Technologies in Healthcare

Anti-aging is one of the fastest growing categories in the personal care/healthcare market, and is expected to grow at a rate of 7.8% between 2013 and 2019. The industry is projected to be worth an estimated 192 billion dollars by 2020.*

With baby boomers now old enough to collect Social Security, they’re using their political influence and accumulated wealth to lead the battle against the effects of aging. With many Americans finally beginning to put more emphasis on a healthy lifestyle we see many new innovations to support their pursuit. Whether the motivation is simple vanity, a desire to live healthier lifestyle than many of us did in our 20’s, 30s and 40s, or a general desire to be around long enough to see what technological...
