Natural product-based Lifespan extension therapy: Piper betle leaf (PBLs) prolongs mammalian life span via down regulation of angiotensin II type I receptor (AT1R), 3/February/2017, 11.36 pm

Small molecule-based PD-L1 pathway blockade enhances the efficacy of Cancer immunotherapy: Genistein, found in Soy and Amur (Maackia amurensis) among others, inhibits the expression of PD-L1, inhibits inflammatory signalling and the number of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes and macrophages, increases Cytotoxic activity of T-cells, decreases tumor burden and increases survival via up-regulation of its target gene, 3/January/2017, 11.23 pm

Significance of the study:

It has been shown earlier that antagonizing angiotensin II type I receptor (AT1R) expression may prolong mammalian life span. Further, it has been shown that disruption of AT1R (AGTR1) gene results in marked prolongation of mammalian lifespan. 

From research findings to therapeutic opportunity

This study suggests, for the first time, that Piper betle leaf (PBLs), by increasing the expression of its target gene,  it may decrease the expression of AT1R.

Figure 1. Piper betle leaves (PBLs) inhibits AT1R expression and prolongs mammalian lifespan via up regulation of its target gene

And, thereby, it may (1) decrease blood pressure; (2) decrease blood sugar levels; (3) decelerate ageing process; and (4) extend the lifespan of an individual. Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Piper betle leaf (PBLs) or an active compound isolated from it or Piper betle leaf (PBLs) in combination with other natural products” may be used to extend the lifespan of an individual (Figure 1).
