Potential of nanoparticles and nanopolymers in treatment of
AbstractAging is an inevitable process caused by the accumulation of
degenerative destructions, which ultimately leads to organism death. As
the aging process occurs at the molecular, cellular, and tissue levels,
understanding the whole details is the prerequisite for the development
of anti-aging therapy. More than 300 compounds of different sources have
been reported with the anti-aging activity that slow aging and extend
lifespan through regulating single or multiple signaling pathways.
Recent innovations in nanotechniques could lead to the development of
nanomaterials having anti-aging effects or acting as nanocarrier systems
and distributers of anti-aging drugs. In this review, we summarized the
molecular mechanisms of longevity and the prospect of developing
anti-aging nanomaterials targeting aging pathways.
