The role of telomeres in the ageing of human skin

“Telomerase is also active in certain somatic cells such as those in the epidermis but is almost undetectable in the dermis. Increasing evidence indicates that telomerase plays a significant role in maintenance of skin function and proliferation.” That’s an extract from a paper on experimental dermatology published by the University of Iowa – that was…

New research: Longer telomeres cure fatal disease

Telomerase – the enzyme activated by the active ingredient in One Truth 818 skin serum – has been used by scientists to cure a potentially fatal disease that’s baffled the medical world for decades. Pulmonary Fibrosis in mice – a deadly lung disease for humans – has been cured by scientists in the the Telomere…

Telomeres Go Batty over…BATS!

More evidence that the prevention of telomere shortening is the key to anti-aging. Bats are the longest-lived mammals relative to body size, and a species called the greater mouse-eared bat lives especially long. Researchers now have unlocked some of this bat’s longevity secrets, with hints for fighting the effects of aging in people. Scientists at…

Telomeres And Cancer

As a cell begins to become cancerous, it divides more often, and its telomeres become very short. If its telomeres get too short, the cell may die. Often times, these cells escape death by making more telomerase enzyme, which prevents the telomeres from getting even shorter. Many cancers have shortened telomeres, including pancreatic, bone, prostate,…
