RESULTS

Found (15) clinical trials

Alzheimer's disease is the most common neurodegenerative disorder and its prevalence steeply increases. The small number of effective treatments for Alzheimer's disease highlights a need for further research into novel therapeutic possibilities. Glutamate-mediated excitotoxicity in neuropsychiatric disorders and in particular in Alzheimer's disease has been shown to cause significant cerebral ...

Study of Acarbose in Longevity

Acarbose, an FDA approved drug for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, has known effects on glucose metabolism. Evidence from mice indicates that acarbose may prolong lifespan. In humans, acarbose improves inflammatory markers and reduces cardiovascular events. Consequently, acarbose is of interest in clinical translational aging research since it may ...

Phase IIb Trial to Evaluate Longeveron Mesenchymal Stem Cells to Treat Aging Frailty

The objectives of this study are to assess safety and efficacy of three doses of Longeveron Mesenchymal Stem Cells (LMSCs) compared to placebo on 1) functional mobility and exercise tolerance, 2) patient-reported physical function, and 3) the inflammatory cytokine biomarker tumor necrosis factor (TNF-a).

Phase

Resveratrol and Exercise to Treat Functional Limitations in Late Life

This investigation is a pilot study to investigate the potential of resveratrol, a commercially-available nutritional product, to enhance the efficacy of physical exercise in improving physical function among older adults with functional limitations. The overarching objective of this project is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of an intervention combining ...

Phase

Effect of Metformin on Frailty in 12 Subjects

Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States and disproportionately affects older adults, underscoring the need to examine determinants of survivorship. Recognizing this gap, current guidelines lay emphasis to assess frailty, a key construct prevalent in elderly and known to impact their prognosis.Older persons are ...

Effect of mTOR Inhibition and Other Metabolism Modulating Interventions on the Elderly

Inhibition of the mTOR pathway by rapamycin (RAPA), an immunosuppressive drug used as adjunct therapy in preventing solid organ allograft rejection, enhances longevity in mice. Importantly, RAPA was efficacious even when initiated in relatively old animals. Thus, it has been suggested that RAPA could be used therapeutically in humans to ...

Cognitive Training to Promote Brain Health: Implementation and Engagement

Cognition encompasses memory, attention, language and other brain capacities that are necessary for good quality of life and independence. Age-related cognitive decline starts at the third decade of life and in some cases can start to impact daily functioning in the late forties. Dementia is the most devastating consequence associated ...

Phase

Effect of Topical Sulforaphane on Skin Fragility Seen in Skin Aging and With Ultraviolet Exposure

The primary purpose of the study is to compare the expression of keratins before and after application of sulforaphane (SF) and determine whether these findings alter skin fragility seen in both intrinsic and extrinsic skin aging as well as in ultraviolet (UV) light exposure. This investigation will be done in ...

Phase

Effects of Red Beetroot Juice on High-Fat Meal-Induced Endothelial Dysfunction and Cardiometabolic Disturbances

This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 4-period, 4-week crossover pilot clinical trial consisting of 2 postprandial tests for each period. Overweight or obese postmenopausal women and men aged 40 to 65 will be recruited from the greater Fort Collins, CO area. After telephone prescreening, participants will report to the study ...

Phase

Aging Mammary Stem Cells and Breast Cancer Prevention

A non-randomized, open-label, phase II, window of opportunity trial will be carried out to see if a 5-7 day rapamycin treatment can reduce malignant markers and aberrant MaSC number
