Aesthetics Biomedical Announces Key Scientific Findings For Its Proprietary Personalized Skincare Product SoME Skincare That’s All You – PR Web

SoME Skincare That's All You | SoME Skincare

PHOENIX (PRWEB) December 02, 2019

Aesthetics Biomedical, a company committed to the development and distribution of innovative aesthetic devices, products, and services for the global market, announce scientific findings for its proprietary SoME Skincare product. SoME is the first of its kind topical product that provides the vehicle for a personalized autologous platelet rich plasma (PRP) skincare product for home use. The field of personalized aesthetics and the use of PRP to effectively achieve aesthetic outcomes is expanding daily, providing new opportunities to advance the science. Contributing to this knowledge base, the results from ABMs controlled, blinded, eight-week study was recently published in the (J Cosmetic Dermatology Vol 18,Issue 5, 2019; Dermatology Times Vol 40, Issue 9,2019 ). The data indicated that the proprietary SoME cosmetic base, when combined with autologous PRP, could demonstrate identifiable clinical improvement for signs of facial aging at four weeks, with enhanced performance observed at eight weeks (e.g., luminosity, radiance, smoothness, reduction in redness and skin lightening) vs the control base alone. Biopsies revealed enhanced collagen and elastin expression, including up-regulation of type 1 collagen gene observed with the SoME + PRP vs the SoME alone.

The proprietary cosmetic base is formulated to preserve viable platelet function for 90 days. As a point of care product, the patient visits their physician office, has blood drawn that is centrifuged to obtain PRP. The PRP is then added to three 1oz bottles of the SoME cosmetic base providing for three months, twice a day home use. The patient receives a mini-cosmetic refrigerator to conveniently store the product. The removal of the product from the refrigerator and applied to the skin provides a temperature differential that activates the platelets with the ensuing release of growth factors and other biomolecules. An additional 120-day study is underway to further verify the clinical and biochemical findings, and to validate that continued use leads to further enhanced cosmetic improvement. The product is well tolerated by all skin types; the preservative system is effective against bacteria, yeast, and viruses, including HIV. Other aesthetic treatments can be performed and used concurrently with SoME.

We entered into this PRP treatment arena, realizing that there was a paucity of controlled studies generating important data involving PRP, not only for topical use but for aesthetic use in general. ABM is very focused on conducting critical science that supports both our topical products and aesthetic devices. Having the first point of care, autologous skincare product for home use has been exciting for the company, and we are thrilled that our scientific findings are contributing to the new field of knowledge for regenerative aesthetic medicine, says MaryAnn Guerra, ABMs, President/CEO.

Lawrence Rheins Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer and one of the authors on the publication, stated, our ongoing studies continually provide critical evidence on the growing role of the platelet in aesthetic medicine and other skin indications. An additional focus for 2020 will be to evaluate the role of SoME as a simplified anti-aging treatment approach to reduce the current practice of using multiple skincare product regimens and the value of using the bodys own platelet-rich biomolecules, as the key source to provide a comprehensive regenerative aesthetic appearance.

About Aesthetics Biomedical: Aesthetics Biomedical is committed to the development and distribution of innovative aesthetic devices, products, and services for the global market. ABM creates novel patient treatment experiences that ensure our products yield desired results, keeping patient comfort in mind. Aesthetics Biomedical's SoME products are intended to meet the FDA's definition of a cosmetic; an article applied to the human body to cleanse, beautify, promote attractiveness, and alter appearances. ABM products do not contain platelet rich plasma and are not intended to be drug or biologic products that diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or condition. These products have not been approved by the FDA, and the statements on these products have not been evaluated by the FDA.

Discover The Latest Frontier in Anti-aging Medicine and 3 Regenerative Therapies You Should Know… – YourObserver.com

Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell technologies... All Hype? Or The Future of Anti-Aging?

We have entered into the rapidly evolving age of Regenerative Medicine, using breakthroughs in cell to cell communication to reset your body's natural ability to heal and repair itself. Advances in Stem Cell technology race forward at an ever increasing rate as people just like you are demanding non-surgical alternatives to the multiple degenerative conditions of aging and inflammation.

If you are asking What is a Stem Cell?

Think of them as simply the master cells of rebuilding the body. They are the building blocks of our genetic code and cellular programming that coordinate healing through bio-signaling to restore our innate capacity of repair & regeneration.

Regenerative Medicine is the vanguard of 21st century health According to Journal: American College of Cardiology

Regenerative Aesthetics is a new field of regenerative medicine that aims to restore and renew the body at the cellular level, dramatically reversing the sands of time and maintaining an aesthetically desirable youthful appearance.

What we really now know is that men and women all over the world want their hair back, they want their sexual organs to work and they want to look and feel their best into their later years.

This brings us to the 3 Regenerative Therapies you should know about.

The first and most widely known of these regenerative therapies is Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP which utilizes your own Blood Plasma and Platelets in a concentrated form to activate the healing cascade. Recruiting your own innate Stem Cells for accelerated wound healing and tissue regeneration.

Known as Liquid Gold, your platelets and plasma have been shown to rejuvenate the

Unfortunately, we are finding clinically that not all PRP is created equally. In fact, some people have a very low concentration of these regenerative growth factors or a high amount of inflammatory cytokines resulting in inconsistencies from person to person, session to session. As PRP continues to get more popular in the mainstream, we find it important to share some of the newer, more optimal Regenerative Technologies that have been emerging.

Which leads us to... The second regenerative therapy you should know about.

Stem Cell Growth factors & Cytokines. Sourced from Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC's) however, they do not contain any actual stem cells or DNA. Growth factors are naturally occurring proteins in your body that regulate cellular growth, healing, proliferation and differentiation under controlled conditions and play a role in cellular communication. They are master bio-signals acting as command and control over your body's natural healing processes and modulation of inflammation.

It has been shown that cells in aging skin generate less growth factors than cells in youthful skin. For example, by the time you are 50, on average 4% of these regenerative bone marrow MSCs are in circulation compared to what you had when you were in your teens. Hence, we age because we damage faster than we repair in our later years.

By simply adding concentrated MSC Growth factors & Cytokines to our Regenerative Therapies we can consistently improve hair loss, skin rejuvenation, collagen growth, sexual organ function, and more. We know for a fact that daily use of skin care products containing stable growth factors and cytokines help reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles and improve skin tone & texture.

Lastly, and most importantly is the latest frontier and the 3rd regenerative therapy you should know about.

The Future of Regenerative Medicine... Known as Stem Cell Exosomes. Science is showing us that the optimal way to provide true stem cell therapy is to directly provide the cell bio-signals in high concentrations. After all, the signaling is what we really require to regenerate a normal healthy physiology.

Exosomes are regarded as the purest form of cellular therapy available today, providing a safe and anti-inflammatory environment for healing and repairing.

The AABB recently reported that up to one in three people in the U.S. could benefit from regenerative medicine.

At Rejuvenate 528 Regenerative Aesthetics Medical Spa, we can include exosomes for enhanced wellness to the majority of our Regenerative Aesthetic Services. This can benefit your overall health and vitality as this is reversing challenges of Inflammation!

Beauty radiates and vibrates at different frequencies in everyone I see! We love to uplift and Rejuvenate both the inner vitality and the outer Radiance of all of our patients and clients.

Rapamycin has anti-aging effect on human skin – Medical News Today

A recent study has reported that rapamycin, a drug that has long served as an immune suppressor, may also slow aging in human skin.

The small clinical trial found that regular application of rapamycin to the backs of the hands appears to reduce wrinkles and sagging and improve skin tone.

After 8 months, most of the hands that had received rapamycin treatment showed an increase in collagen and lower levels of a marker of aging in skin cells compared with a placebo.

In a recent Geroscience paper, the researchers conclude that rapamycin treatment showed a "clear impact" on skin aging at both the molecular and clinical levels.

The team that led the trial comes from Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA, where senior study author Christian Sell, Ph.D., is an associate professor of biochemistry and molecular biology.

Since discovering rapamycin in the soil of Easter Island half a century ago, scientists have found that the bacterial antifungal compound has many effects in the body.

The drug, which takes its name from Rapa Nui, the native term for the Pacific island, can suppress the immune system and prevent cell replication in mammals.

A major mechanism through which rapamycin interacts with cells is the aptly-named mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR). Studies have linked the disruption of this pathway to cancer, obesity, and diabetes, as well as genetic and neurological conditions.

An earlier study by Sell and colleagues had demonstrated that rapamycin could improve cell function and slow aging in cultured cells.

Other researchers have also shown that by blocking TOR proteins in yeast cells, rapamycin causes the yeast to grow smaller cells that live longer.

"If you ramp the pathway down, you get a smaller phenotype," explains Sell.

Scientists have also discovered that rapamycin can slow aging in flies, worms, and mice.

"When you slow growth, you seem to extend lifespan and help the body repair itself at least in mice," Sell continues, noting, "This is similar to what is seen in calorie restriction."

The new investigation, however, is the first to demonstrate an anti-aging effect in living human tissue.

For the study, which took the form of a clinical trial, the team recruited 13 volunteers who were over 40 years of age.

They asked the participants to apply rapamycin cream to the back of one hand and a placebo cream to the back of the other hand every 1 or 2 days before bedtime.

The participants attended evaluation visits every 2 months for 8 months. During the visits, investigators took photographs to evaluate skin wrinkles and general appearance.

The participants also gave blood samples at the 6-month visit and underwent a skin biopsy of both hands at the 8-month visit.

Tests on the blood samples showed that the rapamycin had not entered the participants' bloodstream.

At the end of 8 months, most of the hands that had received rapamycin treatment showed an increase in collagen and a reduction in p16 protein.

Collagen is a protein that gives skin its structure, and p16 is a measure of cell senescence, or deterioration through aging. Skin that has more senescent cells is more wrinkled.

Skin that has higher levels of p16 carries a greater risk of infection and also tends to tear more easily and heal more slowly. These are all signs of dermal atrophy, a skin condition that is common in older people.

Investigations of p16 have shown that human cells release the protein as part of a stress response that occurs following cell damage. These studies have also demonstrated that p16 can function as a tumor suppressor, a type of protein that stops cell growth and division happening too fast or in an uncontrolled way.

Cancer develops when cells begin to behave abnormally. This can happen as a result of a mutation that causes cell processes to go awry. As a tumor suppressor, p16 slows down the cell cycle, promoting aging instead of cancer.

"When cells age, they become detrimental and create inflammation," comments Sell.

"That's part of aging," he continues, adding, "These cells that have undergone stress are now pumping out inflammatory markers."

The researchers point out that the new findings are just the early stage of their research, and they need to do a lot more before they can say how best to apply rapamycin to delay aging.

They foresee applications that include improving human performance and extending lifespan.

These would require developing a form of the drug that works at much lower doses than those used to prevent organ rejection and treat cancer.

Sell, and another team member are shareholders of a pharmaceutical company that holds the license for the technology, for which there are two patents pending.

"As researchers continue to seek out the elusive 'fountain of youth' and ways to live longer, we're seeing growing potential for the use of this drug."

Christian Sell, Ph.D.

Reinvent your body and soul with these new wellness trends – Daily Sabah

The term "wellness holiday" might make you think of saunas and massages. But there's so much more to consider if you're booking a getaway to really get away. Here are seven wellness holiday trends from around the world:

It's not just about salon time

There was a time when holidaymakers took a break by going to a hotel cellar to get a quick rubdown with essential oils. Maybe there was a sauna and a beauty salon somewhere. That has changed radically.

Today, many hotels offer lush bathing landscapes and large spas to serve very different needs. "The hoteliers are preparing themselves for additional requests," says journalist Christian Werner of the RELAX Guide in Vienna, such as wellness with children, only for adults or serving organic cuisine.

Wellness is a complete lifestyle

Lutz Hertel of the German Wellness Association sees a strong need for real wellness instead of short, everyday escapes. Exotic treatments such as Lomi Lomi Nui, a form of massage from Hawaii, are losing market share. There is a stronger demand for yoga, which can be incorporated into the daily routine at any holiday resort.

Claudia Wagner of travel agency Fit Reisen also sees a need for holistic self-optimization. Her guests want deeply effective, individual breaks for stress management, weight loss, detox or anti-aging treatments.

Everything goes back to nature

Hiking, forest bathing, yoga, tai chi and bouldering: The experts see a turn toward nature. Forests and meadows become the backdrops for sport, meditation or even open-air massages. And the boundaries between wellness and sport are blurred.

Werner says the demand for the good old fitness room with treadmills and weights is declining. If you want to keep people coming to the hotel gym, it's got to have the latest generation of machines.

Bring nature to the spa

"Old Roman columns and artificial palms in bathing landscapes are a thing of the past," Hertel says. Especially in Bavaria, Austria and South Tyrol, the spa areas inside are often enlivened with moss, plants and small trees, and built with a view and entrance into the countryside. Prized outside appearances include wood and stone if possible from the region as well as features such as hot springs, natural swimming ponds and forest proximity.

Find remedies from the region

Regional treatments to strengthen the powers of self-healing also follow the natural trend. In the Ulten Valley in South Tyrol, the lanolin in the cozy sheep's wool bath allows you to benefit from the natural Alpine herbs that the sheep have eaten. In Halkidiki in Greece, rituals with olive oil, salt, medicinal herbs, yogurt and honey are based on ancient Greek healing methods. In Northern Ireland, an ancient bathing tradition with algae has been revived under the name Sea Haven Therapy.

The classic health resorts are increasingly taking part, vying for ever-more-demanding wellness customers with traditional local remedies. In the Limes-Therme Bad Goegging, for example, guests sweat in the moor mud bath or indulge in a hop bath, which includes a beer.

Caress the soul

Mental support assists the body in healing: Modern forms of traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda use this approach, which has become more important for wellness. "We recognize more and more that our mental condition contributes significantly to the self-healing of the body," Wagner says.

Always take it nice and slow

In yoga, the trend is toward calm yin yoga, where you take your time settling into deep stretches instead of getting your heart rate up with a powerful series of sun salutes. When it comes to fitness, "slow jogging" promises healthy, weight-reducing pleasure running.

Hertel sees the new jogging trend as the expression of a new philosophy that strives for a better work-life balance. "It is about a less rushed, more conscious and more enjoyable life," comparable to the slow food movement.

Red Light Therapy, Blue Light Therapy, & Light Box Therapy Explained – Prevention.com

Everyone is turning toward the light these days: Red-light body sessions have become spa-menu fixtures, and LED gadgets promise to fix everything from insomnia to wrinkles. Were only scratching the surface of what light can do, says Shadab Rahman, Ph.D., an instructor of sleep medicine at Harvard Medical School.

Heres what you can expect from a few trending treatments.

WHAT IT IS: A lamp that emits rays that mimic sunlight; sitting close to it for 20 to 30 minutes in the morning is said to boost mood, increase focus, and fight irritability in people with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

WHAT WE KNOW: About one in five people experiences a mood dip in winter, and light boxes are the go-to antidote. The light targets the cause: a disturbance in circadian rhythm tied to the change in sunlight and darkness, explains Michael Terman, Ph.D., of the Center for Environmental Therapeutics. One study showed light therapy to be as effective as antidepressants in treating SAD, with fewer side effects.

SHOULD YOU TRY IT? Yes, but if your blues are mild, try sunlight (free!) first. Taking breaks outside or at the window can make you feel more alert and focused and improve your mood, says Rahman.

BRANDS: Carex Day-Light Classic Plus Bright Light Therapy Lamp, $115; AIRSEE Light Therapy Lamp 10,000 Lux, $34

WHAT IT IS: Special LED lightbulbs that are said to help battle insomnia by regulating your circadian rhythm; blue-emitting bulbs perk you up during the day, while blue-depleted bulbs help you sleep at night.

WHAT WE KNOW: Many studies have shown that nighttime exposure to blue light (from phones, computers, and regular lightbulbs) suppresses melatonin, the hormone needed to trigger sleep. Other studies have found that exposure to blue light during the day improves alertness.

SHOULD YOU TRY IT? Sure. We need our day-night contrast to be dramatic; one way is to use blue-enriched light on your desk during the day and blue-depleted lights wherever you relax for two hours before bed, says Rahman.

BRANDS: Lighting Science GoodNight Sleep Enhancing Bulb, $13; Harth Nite Switch Bulb, $20

WHAT IT IS: Beds, masks, and handheld wands that emit red light claim to plump skin and reduce fine lines.

WHAT WE KNOW: A 2013 study showed that light treatments could help reduce wrinkles. Red light has anti-inflammatory effects and increases collagen production, tightening skin and improving texture and tone, says Angela Lamb, M.D., a dermatologist at New York Citys Mount Sinai Hospital.

SHOULD YOU TRY IT? Only if you can spend a lot and keep your expectations in check. These treatments do offer modest improvement, especially when combined with anti-aging creams that include retinol, hydroxy acids, or antioxidants like vitamin C, says Joshua Zeichner, M.D., Mount Sinais director of research in dermatology.

BRANDS: LightStim for Wrinkles, $250; Dr. Dennis Gross, DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro, $435

Look your best for the holidays! Dr. Mark Golden has the solution – Patch.com

Ophthalmologist Mark Golden MD at Doctors for Visual Freedom, 875 N. Michigan Ave., Suite 1820, wants everyone to look their best for the holidays. "Now is the perfect time to treat yourself or a loved one to a cosmetic procedure to refresh your look for the holidays," he says. Cosmetic fillers and Botox treatments are just some of the many services offered by Dr. Golden.

"People should not take chances by going to Botox parties and should always verify that the person administering Botox and fillers is FDA approved and a physician," Dr. Golden says. "If you are getting injections into your facial muscles, you need a doctor who has specialized training in facial anatomy and a well-developed aesthetic eye."

Dr. Golden has been performing Botox and filler injections for 17 years, ever since Botox was first FDA approved.

Pricing

Botox pricing can vary by quite a lot, Dr. Golden says. In downtown Chicago, the average price is about $20 per unit. The 11's typically take 20 units and at Dr. Golden's office that is only $195 dollars. Each additional units there are only $12.50. When a full-face treatment can use up to 60 units, Dr. Golden's charges are very reasonable.

What about fillers?

Fillers also are an amazing way to take years off the appearance in a subtle manner, he says. "We are all interested in improving and maintaining an attractive appearance. Doctors for Visual Freedom offers cosmetic treatments that are low-risk and high-result investments.

Choosing a skilled ophthalmologist like Dr. Mark Golden gives you confidence you will achieve the results you seek. Cosmetic treatments can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving you with a more youthful and attractive outlook.

Skincare Products to Reduce Dark Under-Eye Circles

Dr. Golden also has a wide range of skin care products that reduce dark circles under eyes in as little as two weeks, amazing moisturizing creams with hyaluronic acid and anti-aging creams that reduce wrinkles without using Botox.

Some people may want to try Latisse which can increase eyelash growth. Most women find a dramatic increase in lashes in 6 weeks. "Our price of $150 for the large size is much cheaper than found at most drug stores," he says.

Expansion of Eye Glass Frame Selection

With their recent move to Suite 1820 at 875 North Michigan Avenue Building, formerly the John Hancock Center, Doctors for Visual Freedom has expanded their eyeglass frame selection, adding almost a hundred new frames in the last several weeks including Gucci, Tom Ford, Alexander McQueen, Emilio Pucci, Swarovski, Mark Jacobs, Jimmy Choo, Versace, Carolina Herrera and Ray Ban.

They also offer eyeglasses that are more modestly priced, using good frames and quality optics, making glasses affordable for almost any budget.

Here's a rundown of treatments and what to expect:

BOTOX Cosmetic

BOTOX Cosmetic is best known as an effective means of softening and relaxing contracting facial muscles that cause unseemly wrinkles. When your muscle is injected with BOTOX Cosmetic, it no longer receives the nerve signal to contract.

One BOTOX Cosmetic treatment can last anywhere from four to six months, but the muscle memory may cause a more permanent effect resulting in less severe muscle contractions over time. The treatment is typically complete in a few minutes with mild discomfort to the injected muscle.

Learn more about BOTOX Cosmetic here.

JUVDERM

As we age, our skin loses elasticity, and the actions of our facial muscles begin to create wrinkles and creases. The hyaluronic acid that is naturally present in your skin maintains the hydration and volume of your tissues. In medicine, this substance has been used to alleviate joint pain and treat wounds. Hyaluronic acid was first used for facial rejuvenation in Europe in 1996. The hyaluronic acid in JUVDERM works by adding volume to your skin, thereby reducing the evidence of folds and fine lines.

Learn more about JUVDERM here.

LATISSE

The use of prescription LATISSE is proven to produce longer and fuller eyelashes as well as promote eyelash growth. Results can be seen gradually within weeks and full results are achieved anywhere from eight to sixteen weeks. Using a sterile applicator, LATISSE is applied daily directly to your lashes on the upper eyelid. No surgery is needed and LATISSE is FDA approved as a medically safe procedure.

Chicago, Buffalo Grove, Arlington Heights and Downtown Chicago residents have made Doctors for Visual Freedom their choice for cosmetic treatments in BOTOX Cosmetic, LATISSE and Juvederm.

Learn more about LATISSE here.

Fillers

Dr. Golden has been injecting fillers into the face to help people look younger for more than a decade. Fillers can be used diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness to the face. They fill shallow contours, soften facial creases, add volume to cheeks, and plump thin lips. With injectable fillers, you can look more youthful look for a fraction of the cost of a surgical facelift. Treatments generally take less than 30 minutes and results can last from a year to two or more.

The objective of fillers is to look better but not have the appearance of having had fillers. Patients have the opportunity to watch as fillers are applied so that they can make a judgment as to the amount to achieve the appropriate contour of the face. Our patients tell us that their friends and spouses say that they look younger or more rested, but typically no one knows unless told they are told that fillers were applied. A natural appearance is important to Dr. Golden and if you want exaggeration of expression or huge lips, you should look elsewhere for care.

BOTOX Cosmetic injections relax the muscle under a wrinkle, but fillers can fill the deep creases or lines on the face causing trouble spots to nearly disappear. Fillers are used to plump and lift cheeks, jawlines and temples as well as eliminating deep creases not amenable to BOTOX Cosmetic treatments quickly and easily.

SkinMedica Products

At Doctors For Visual Freedom we believe everyone deserves to have radiant skin. That's why we've picked the SkinMedica line of advanced skin care products that rejuvenate skin. As skin ages, elasticity decreases and lines appear. Their scientifically proven recovery compounds include essential ingredients ranging from vitamins C and E to retinol to TNSa patented blend of growth factors, soluble collagen, antioxidants and matrix proteins.

Getting Fit Is Costing a Bit More in West Hollywood – WEHOville

The most expensive gym in West Hollywood? The answer to that question used to be Equinox, which charges an initiation fee of $200 to $300 and then $300 a month for membership. But then along came Dogpound, the celebrity fitness center that opened in May on Robertson Boulevard. No membership required there, but a 60-minute workout with a trainer costs $200, or a total of $2,280 if you go for 12 sessions in a month. Theres a decent chance youll see Justin Bieber pumping weights nearby.

And now theres Monarch Athletic Club, which is opening Dec. 12 at 8730 Sunset Blvd. The cost of a membership there ranges from $1,250 to $2,000 a month, with the basics including unlimited personal training, quarterly evaluations, nutritional advice, and access to the clubs amenities, including Monarchs social club. The pricier membership offers services such as metabolic panel testing, 30- to 60-minute sports massages, ongoing physical therapy sessions, IV therapy and injections, anti-aging treatments and a concierge doctor that can be booked same-day, for house, office, hotel, or work calls.

Monarch Athletic Club says on its website that to even call it a fitness brand is a gross understatement; instead, the club serves as a hub for personal growth and optimization.

Another attribute that Monarch calls out is the fact that it is Private & Exclusive. Monarch is only available to members and not to the general public. Like-minded members will be able to work towards their fitness and health goals without distraction.

Dr. Ryan Greene is the CEO of Monarch Athletic Club and serves as the principal medical advisor. He is an osteopathic physician specializing in human performance, sports medicine and nutrition as well as cosmetic dermatology.

Geneticists Attempt To Help Chemotherapy Patients Could End Age-Related Hair Loss, Wrinkled Skin And Reduced Energy – Forbes

A University of Alabama cancer geneticist is taking his anti-aging research to the next level to effectively end age-related hair loss, wrinkled skin and reduced energy. And he hopes to have products on the market in 5 years.

A new startup out of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), Yuva Biosciences, is essentially the result of Keshav Singhs attempt to help chemotherapy patients re-grow the hair they lose as a result of the cancer treatment. But what he found could help everyone.

Yuvawhich means youth in Hindihopes to tap into the multi-billion-dollar hair loss prevention and anti-aging skincare market with cosmeceuticals, science-based cosmetics and pharmaceuticals based on its founders research into mitochondrial DNAthe tiny part of cells that produce 90 percent of the chemical energy they need to survive.

Singh said along with causing skin to age and hair to fall out, mitochondrial dysfunction can drive age-related diseases. A depletion of the DNA in mitochondria is also implicated in human mitochondrial diseases, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, age-associated neurological disorders and cancer.

Last year, Singh and his colleagues at UAB reversed wrinkles and restored hair growth in mice. The team triggered a gene mutation that caused mitochondrial dysfunction in mice, causing them to develop wrinkled skin and lose their hair. The UAB researchers discovered that turning off that mutation restored the mice to normal appearance making them indistinguishable from healthy mice of the same age. In effect, when the mitochondrial function was restored, the mice regained smooth skin and thick fur.

The mouse in the center photo shows aging-associated skin wrinkles and hair loss after two months of ... [+] mitochondrial DNA depletion. That same mouse, right, shows reversal of wrinkles and hair loss one month later, after mitochondrial DNA replication was resumed. The mouse on the left is a normal control, for comparison.

Singh along with Bhupendra Singh, Trenton R. Schoeb and Prachi Bajpai, UAB Department of Genetics; and Andrzej Slominski, UAB Department of Dermatology shared their results in apaperin July 2018, Reversing wrinkled skin and hair loss in mice by restoring mitochondrial function, in the journal Cell Death and Disease. The work was supported by U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants.

Now in addition to his duties as a senior scientist in the Cancer Cell Biology Program and director of the Cancer Genetics Program at the ONeal Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB, Singh will serve as chief scientific advisor for Yuva Biosciences.

The founding editor-in-chief of Elseviers Mitochondrion journal, Singh said scientists already knew that humans age as mitochondrial DNA content and mitochondrial function decline. He said the trick is to find a way to restore that content and function. And theyve already done that in mice. Now they want to transfer those studies and hopefully similar results to human trials.

Our plan is to look for two things, Singh said. We want to identify natural products which can enhance mitochondrial function. We have already identified at least one of these natural products that enhances mitochondrial function and also seems to prevent hair loss and wrinkles. Secondly, we want to re-purpose drugs that are already FDA-approved.

Singh said the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) already has a library of thousands of FDA-approved compoundsdrugs for everything from diabetes to Alzheimers disease. We want to test them to see which ones might enhance mitochondrial function and even enhance energy, he said, adding that researchers work last year at UAB allowed us to develop a system where we can use different compounds that could enhance mitochondrial function.

Singh said the first of Yuvas products will likely be a topical therapy to halt wrinkles and hair loss and perhaps restore damage already done.

Yuva Biosciences plans to prevent or undo many of the effects of aging, which is why we like to say our goal is to provide Youthfulness for LifeTM, Singh said. Currently, we are aiming to develop productsto help people look and feel younger. Ourlong-term plan is to increase health span by addressing diseases associated with aging.

With the help of Greg Schmergel, a Boston-based serial entrepreneur, who will serve as chairman of Yuva Biosciences, Singh will occupy lab space at Innovation Depot, Inc. The Depot is a 140,000-square-foot office, lab and co-working startup space for technology companies located near UAB in Birmingham, Alabama. Yuva plans to hire two additional employees early next year.

Schmergel brings more than 25 years of experience in launching multiple high-tech ventures and leading a Massachusetts-based nanotechnology company, Nantero Inc., where he is the co-founder and CEO. A former senior vice president of corporate strategy for About, Inc., Schmergel also serves on the Board of Trustees of Lahey Hospital & Medical Centera, a physician-led nonprofit teaching hospital of Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM) based in Burlington, Massachusetts.

In a statement, Schmergel said Yuva is committed to building the company in Birmingham, where well have access to resources like the world-class researchers and facilities at UAB, the startup-focused amenities at Innovation Depot, and the rising regional entrepreneurial network.

Scientists Robert K. Naviaux, MD. Ph.D. and Matt R. Kaeberlein, Ph.D. will serve on the Yuva Biosciences Advisory Board. Kaeberlein specializes in aging and is past president of the American Aging Association, and professor in the Department of Pathology at the University of Washington (UW), in Seattle. Naviaux specializes in mitochondrial and metabolic medicine and is a professor of Genetics at the University of California San Diego (UCSD).

Singh said there is no telling how far Yuva could go in aging research, though there is much testing yet to be done. We have discovered that mitochondria, which are the powerhouse of the cell, are the reversible regulator of wrinkles and hair loss, Singh said. The potential is huge as everyone develops wrinkles and most of us lose hair. So, any agent or drug which can slow down or reverse that will have a major impact.

Singh wouldnt speculate on whether manipulating mitochondrial DNA could cause all human organs and systems to regenerate and whether it would reverse aging in themfor example the human brain and any implications his research could have on dementia. And although little change was seen in other organs when the mutation was induced, he did hint that there is indeed great potential for further disease research.
