Jason Hope Believes Inflammation Could Hold Key To Youth

Jason Hope, Arizona’s most innovative tech entrepreneur, recently made headlines for his $500,000 donation to the SENS Foundation. The donation was made in order to further the understanding of atherosclerosis, the disease process that lies at the heart of America’s deadliest killer. Heart attack and stroke are both the end result of atherosclerotic disease in the majority of cases.

Mr. Jason Hope believes that discovering what processes drive this disorder, especially at the molecular level, will help to fight the worst diseases in America. But it may also hold the key to unlocking some of the most profound secrets of the aging process.

Degeneration is inflammation

Hope points to a growing body of research indicating that all degenerative diseases have their roots in inflammation, at least to some extent. The same process which causes insult to the walls of veins and arteries, followed by an inflammatory response, may underlie everything from wrinkled skin to glaucoma to arthritis. In fact, Hope notes that certain types of age-associated diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, have long been known to be a consequence of immune-mediated inflammatory processes. If these can be understood well enough to prevent them, Hope thinks that many other effects of aging will someday be able to be slowed, halted or even reversed.

With his donation, the SENS Foundation will be able to contribute thousands of man-hours into one of the most important areas of modern medical research. At a minimum, understanding more about atherosclerosis will help to prevent thousands of heart attack deaths each year.

    the donation is great but the most especially so many people would love the areas of research the money has gone in for. Therefore the mymathdone.com/ would help to be a supplementary source for the study and survey to explain the technical medical study. We cannot do without the business benefits for the company in which the research are duly sponsoring.
