Published Turning back the clock on photoaging skin (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study examines dermal injections and their impact on skin aging.
Published Researchers discover potential microbiome links to skin aging (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Recent findings have identified a potential new link to signs of skin aging -- the skin microbiome, the collection of microorganisms that inhabits our skin.
Published A more eco-friendly facial sheet mask that moisturizes, even though it's packaged dry (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Starting a new year, many people pledge to enact self-care routines that improve their appearance. And facial sheet masks soaked in skin care ingredients provide an easy way to do this. However, these wet masks and their waterproof packaging often contain plastics and preservatives. Now, a study reports a dry-packaged hydrating facial mask that is made of biobased and sustainable materials.
Published Brain cell discovery sparks hope for fertility treatments (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have demonstrated how a specific type of neuron in the brain affects the release of hormones that control ovarian function in females. These findings could help researchers understand and treat reproductive disorders in both animals and humans.
Published Stimulating nerves connected to the pancreas regenerates insulin-producing cells, mouse study shows (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Decreasing pancreatic beta cell numbers -- the only cells that produce insulin -- is a leading cause of diabetes. In a promising development, a research group has revealed that stimulating autonomic vagal nerves connected to the pancreas can improve the function and also increase the number of pancreatic beta cells in mice.
Published Why does puberty trigger us to stop growing? (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Research on fruit flies has implications for this poorly understood process in humans.
Published Anti-rheumatic drugs could prevent thyroid disease (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Anti-rheumatic drugs used for rheumatoid arthritis might prevent the development of autoimmune thyroid disease, according to a new observational study.
Published Excessive fluid consumption: Habit or hormonal disorder? (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
People who drink more than three liters of fluid a day may be suffering from a rare hormone deficiency. For many, however, it is just a harmless habit. Failing to differentiate the two correctly can be fatal, so researchers have been investigating what kind of test delivers a reliable diagnosis.
Published First-of-its kind hormone replacement treatment shows promise in patient trials (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new kind of hormone replacement therapy that more closely replicates the natural circadian and ultradian rhythms of our hormones has shown to improve symptoms in patients with adrenal conditions.
Published Promising new options for treating aggressive prostate cancer (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Investigators have identified two promising new treatment options for men with recurrent prostate cancer -- both of which helped patients live longer without their disease progressing than the current standard treatment. 'If these treatments are approved by the Food and Drug Administration, our results will be practice changing,' said Stephen Freedland, MD, associate director for Training and Education and the Warschaw, Robertson, Law Families Chair in Prostate Cancer at Cedars-Sinai, and lead author of the study. 'In the study, both of these new options improved metastasis-free survival while preserving quality of life.'
Published Is a longer reproductive lifespan good for your brain? (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
People with a higher cumulative estrogen exposure throughout their life may have a lower risk of cerebral small vessel disease, according to a new study.
Published Women with PCOS on keto diet may see improvements in fertility (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The ketogenic (keto) diet may lower testosterone levels in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), according to a new article.
Published Estrogen-negative cancers respond to anti-estrogenic therapies (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Anti-estrogenic therapies can suppress the growth of cancer that does not express estrogen receptors; when combined with immune checkpoint inhibitor therapies, they halt tumor progression in mice models.
Published Cause of sleep disturbance in cardiac disease identified: Ganglia play previously unrecognized role (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Around one third of people with heart disease suffer from sleep problems. A team now shows that heart diseases affect the production of the sleep hormone melatonin in the pineal gland. The link between the two organs is a ganglion in the neck region. The study demonstrates a previously unknown role of ganglia and points to possible treatments.
Published Why does skin get 'leathery' after too much sun? Bioengineers examine cellular breakdown (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A study explores how ultraviolet radiation can alter the microstructure of human skin. Particularly affected is collagen, the fibrous protein that binds together tissue, tendon, cartilage and bone throughout our bodies.
Published Birth-control pills affect the body's ability to regulate stress, study suggests (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study suggests that birth-control pills negatively impact women's stress response.
Published Wearable monitor detects stress hormone levels across a full 24-hour day (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Early warning signs of diseases caused by dysfunctional levels of stress hormones could be spotted more easily thanks to a new wearable device developed by researchers.
Published Exposure to dioxins can worsen thyroid function (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Exposure to dioxins can negatively impact thyroid function, according to a study presented Thursday at ENDO 2023, the Endocrine Society's annual meeting in Chicago, Ill.
Published Boosting the body's anti-viral immune response may eliminate aging cells (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Aging cells express a protein that is produced by human cytomegalovirus and is targeted by certain immune cells in the body. Harnessing the immune response to this protein could have multiple health benefits during aging.
Published Scientists see anti-aging potential in an invasive weed (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The fruit of the cocklebur plant, which grows worldwide and is often considered a noxious weed, has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory components that could make it useful as a skin protectant, according to new research.
