|Relaxed DNA may contribute to aging|
People with Werner syndrome—a rare disease with symptoms that mimic premature aging—usually go gray in their 20s, develop cataracts and osteoporosis in their 30s, and die before 60. Now, researchers have for the first time created a key class of ...

|iPS Cells From Werner Syndrome Patients Established|
3, 2014) - Scientists in Japan have successfully established induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) from the fibroblasts of Werner Syndrome patients. Their results, published in PLoS One, could spur the development of better treatments for the genetic ...

|Stem cell aging in adult progeria|
Among several premature aging syndromes, Werner syndrome (WS) and Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) are two broadly investigated diseases. In this review, we discuss how stem cell aging in WS helps us understand the biology of aging.

|A central mechanism of aging identified – and it might be reversible|
People with Werner syndrome age faster than normal because of a genetic mutation that disrupts normal DNA cell processes. It affects around one in every 200,000 people in the United States, with sufferers plagued by early-onset age-related diseases ...
