Effect of short peptides on neuronal differentiation of stem cells
By Editorial Team (Y)
Currently, neurodegenerative disorders treatment is based on the use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). The progression of the disease is manifested by neuronal death and the afterward loss of brain and cognitive functions. MSCs are likely acting by stimulating many physiological processes, including angiogenesis and neurogenesis. Furthermore, MSCs possess a vital role in the immunomodulatory, […]

Neuroprotective Effects of Tripeptides
By Editorial Team (A)
Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease that affects older adults and causes dementia. Progressive cognitive impairment is a hallmark of this condition. Globally, AD incidence is growing exponentially. According to predictions, the number of people with dementia will increase to 131.5 million across the globe by 2050. Alzheimer’s disease comes in several forms, the most […]

Short-chain Khavinson peptides: Effects on the body
By Editorial Team (Y)
Digestive system Such short-chain Khavinson peptides as Epitalon, Livagen, and Vilon are not cleaved in the stomach and small intestine. They can regulate digestive enzyme activities in animals. The administration of Livagen and Vilon increased digestive enzymes activities in aged animals to a level that is typical for young animals. In addition, the peroral administration […]

Short-chain Khavinson peptides: Effects on regeneration, aging, and tumor processes
By Editorial Team (Y)
What are short-chain Khavinson peptides? Vladimir Khavinson developed a method of invention short-chain peptides based on the analysis of the amino acid composition of animal tissue peptide extract. These short-chain peptides have the main in vivo and in vitro activities of the preparations described above.The principles of designing biologically active short-chain Khavinson peptides include: the […]

Tissue-derived peptide complexes. Epithalamin
By Editorial Team (A)
Epithalamin is a peptide complex derived from the bovine pineal gland. It is used to treat accelerated cardiovascular aging in older adults. Studies showed that Epithalamin administration decreased aging and mortality rate over 15 years of follow-up. In addition, the long-term use of this peptide complex reduces the rate of cardiovascular system aging, restores physical […]

Tissue-derived peptide complexes. Cortexin
By Editorial Team (A)
Cortexin is a peptide complex isolated from the brain cortex of cattle or hogs. It shows a prominent neuroprotective effect, stimulating repair processes in the brain and accelerating the recovery of brain function after stress. Effects of Cortexin The administration of Cortexin to patients with the organic emotionally labile (asthenic) disorder resulted in decreased blood […]

Tissue-derived peptide complexes
By Editorial Team (A)
Since 1973, the team of V.Kh. Khavinson and colleagues have isolated more than 20 physiologically active substances comprised mainly of small peptides. These compounds were obtained from mammalian tissues. Five of them have been approved for medical use, including: Cortexin derived from the brain cortex Eipthalamin derived from the pineal gland Prostatilen derived from the […]

Regulatory peptides producers
By Editorial Team (A)
Our gut is one of the sources of regulatory peptides. It does not contribute significantly to the production of long molecules. However, it is of great significance when it comes to short-chain peptides. Peptides appear in the intestinal lumen due to either degradation of food proteins or synthetic activity of intestinal microbiota. Every day, we […]

Starting Your Personal Longevity Strategy
By Editorial Team (1)
Getting started on the road to a healthier and hopefully longer life. Every day, researchers get together in their labs and try to find ways of bringing aging under medical control. Despite the ongoing global effort, it is estimated that a relatively complete system of controlling biological aging is at least 20 years away. That […]

Activity and Diet Shown to Slow Aging (Again)
By Editorial Team (1)
GrimAge and a different epigenetic approach were used as biomarkers. Scientists have used DNA methylation markers to measure the anti-aging effects of healthy diet and physical activity, reaching interesting, if at times contradictory, results [1]. Move, eat healthy, check your biological age Physical activity (PA) and healthy diet are two powerful interventions that have time and […]
