John Newman, MD, PhD gave a plenary Special Lecture at the 17th Scientific Meeting of the Japanese Society for Anti-Aging Medicine in Tokyo on June 2. The society is comprised primarily of clinician-researchers from a diversity of specialties who study how biological mechanisms of aging are related to common chronic diseases of the elderly. Dr. Newman spoke on molecular signaling activities of ketone bodies that may be relevant to aging, and strategies for translating therapies that target mechanisms of aging into early-stage clinical trials. Dr. Newman thanks his gracious hosts, including Dr. Kazuo Tsubota and Dr. Hidetsugu Saito.
