The video of the UCLA presentation is now online. The HD version is at URL http://www.vimeo.com/1270611 and a smaller version for those with slower Internet connections is at http://vimeo.com/1268542

We also have a stack of video showing the excitement generated during the poster sessions. Paul's Video montage is at:
http://vimeo.com/1293451   (thanks to Tom M for taking much of the footage:))

Amy's reflections on the Aging Conference are at:

---------------------------------------------------------------------




July 27-29th will mark a major milestone for the Autoimmunity Research Foundation, as those dates mark a conference at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) at which we will start to explore how our new science will affect many areas of human endeavor, in addition to curing chronic immune disease.

In a way, we already started this process when we presented at Karolinska on neurological disease. However, the emphasis to date has been on cure, and now we need to look at prevention. At what constitutes health.

The conference schedule and abstracts are now online. I am scheduled to speak at 5pm on Sunday 29th.
http://www.methuselahfoundation.org/UABBA/agenda/

The abstracts can be found at:
http://www.methuselahfoundation.org/UABBA/presenting/abstracts/marshall/
http://www.methuselahfoundation.org/UABBA/presenting/abstracts/mangin/
http://www.methuselahfoundation.org/UABBA/presenting/abstracts/proal/

ARF volunteers present at this conference will be Meg and Tom Mangin, Belinda Fenter, Amy Proal, Paul Albert, Liz and Trevor Marshall.

This conference is being held on an even more arduous schedule than Karolinska, with 12+ hour days. Thank God for the MP...

A PDF version of the abstracts can be found at:

http://AutoimmunityResearch.org/abstracts/Aging_2008_Mangin.pdf
http://AutoimmunityResearch.org/abstracts/Aging_2008_Proal.pdf

To better understand the aims of the scientists who will be at the conference, you might like to look at the Colbert Report interview of the head of the organizing Foundation, Aubrey de Grey. You can find it at this link:
http://www.comedycentral.com/videos/index.jhtml?videoId=156276

The conference is organized in two parts. There is a late-afternoon conference on Fri 27th which is free, and open to the public (which I suspect many of our LA members may want to attend), and a scientific conference on Saturday and Sunday. Info about the two can be found at:

http://www.methuselahfoundation.org/ADCI/promote/Aging2008PressRelease.html
http://www.methuselahfoundation.org/ADCI/
and
http://www.methuselahfoundation.org/UABBA/index.html



ps: Many thanks to UK MP member Nick Bowler for putting me in contact with Aubrey:) and to the generous Donors who have made it possible for us to afford to attend  these conferences:):)

pps: A reminder again for you Southern California based MP'ers. There is a free session of the conference on 27th June, which you can register for here:

Interestingly, I was reading over the methusalah foundation's site last night when I came across their lysosens research. 

Cells have a lot of reasons to break down big molecules and structures into their component parts, and a lot of ways to do so. Unfortunately, one of the main reasons to break things down is because they have been chemically modified so that they no longer work, and sometimes these chemical modifications create structures that are so weird that none of the cell's degradation machinery works on them.

This situation is very rare, but in the long run these modified chemicals add up. Ultimately the chemicals end up in the lysosome, a special vessel that contains the most powerful degradation machinery in the cell; if something can't be broken down there, it just stays there forever. This doesn't matter in cells that divide regularly, because division dilutes the junk enough that it remains at harmlessly low levels, but non-dividing cells gradually fill up with this stuff, making them dysfunctional. The heart, the back of the eye, some nerve cells (especially motor neurons) and, most of all, white blood cells trapped within the artery wall all suffer from this.

I couldn't help but ask myself the question "here are a list of symptoms associated with TH1 syndromes, could CWD bacteria be the missing causal link from their perspective?"

There seems quite a challenge at the conference for you Dr. M. Just see that at the Methuselah website they refer to the same article and promote Vitamin D supplementation

Supose some of you already saw the articles.
Wrong!

Aad,
It is not surprising that nearly every place where Th1 Chronic Inflammatory Disease and diseases of aging are discussed that a link to an article about half the story of D is told. After all is said and done, the evidence for low 25D will confound the very folks who have worked so hard to find that detail in Chronic Inflammatory Disease (right data for the wrong reason still is producing profoundly correct initial data about low 25D ;) ).

Also, one of the two financial program outcomes Methuselah offers is focused on murine models. So I would expect some clarification on how human VDR differ from all animal models, and why in-silico data can help inform again, for a fuller perspective.

It will be good to have those from the Autoimmunity Research Foundation there to tell, who know the relevant information and can clear up misinformation.

Best to all--Janet

Jacks and I have registered to come for Friday, as well as attend the dinner.  I do hope more LAers/MPers are coming and that we can all meet up at some point. I know it will be hectic, but maybe sitting together at dinner or something like that would be doable?

Thanks! Alayne

Alayne,
I would prefer if we could be sitting at as many tables as possible during the symposium dinner, so we can let the delegates know what we have found. I have recorded a rehearsal of the presentation I will be giving, so that any one of us who can attend the conference will understand what the message is which we need to convey to this group (check your PM, I just sent you the URL for the preview)

Maybe we can get together for an 'MP reunion' on Thursday evening?

Well, Trevor, that makes a lot more sense. Great idea for folks getting together Thursday night.  That would be great!  Thanks for the link as well - gives me a better overview of what to talk about.

I do hope folks write in if they're coming. That way we can arrange a Thurs night meet-up. If our place was big enough for more than two people, I'd invite everyone here. However, unless someone comes up with a way to shrink to about 6" in size, I won't be able to to. :)

Cheers! Alayne

Would love to see everyone and help promote Dr. M's findings, but it's the big wedding weekend for our daughter. Donna

HI ALL

This is Fred in WV.  I can not make it there either, but I sure hope there is DVD of it later.  My MP doctor ask me if there would be a DVD, that he was interested in aging.  He wants a copy of the DVD if you do have one later.

Remember, we are all in this together and I am pulling for us.

Your friend in Sarcoidosis

Freddie

Freddie,
There will be a Vimeo/YouTube video made of my 15 minute scientific presentation, plus any questions, and we hope to also get together some video for Vimeo/YouTube of the event and people and interesting stuff as well. Just like we did at Karolinska, actually.. :)

Aide-memoire - Karolinska Video:
The HD (High Definition) version of the main video is available at URL http://www.vimeo.com/955029 and, for slower net connections, a less detailed version is available at http://vimeo.com/952759

There are a number of informal video 'transcripts' available. Paul's 10 minute overview of the conference for YouTube is up at URL:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JKJ4Wc5gEY

My pastiche of the reception at the City Hall is on Vimeo at URL
http://www.vimeo.com/939607

Paul has a collection of 'outtakes' at:

Alayne (and everybody else who might be able to attend the Friday symposium)

Please make sure you register for the dinner. The Foundation will reimburse the $30 cost, please don't let that be a hindrance to you.

The more people we have present at the Friday evening symposium, and have present at the dinner, the more of an impact we will be able to make in the main conference:):)

This is an important conference, as it allows us to get our science out to a much wider audience of researchers. It is the science which will eventually allow us to deliver help to the folk in our society who are so sick, Medicine can't keep ignoring the science for ever...

I plan to attend and hope to see other MPers there.  I enquired for more specifics and Aubrey said that the seminar itself is from 5 pm to 8 pm and will probably have a break around 6:30.  The dinner is 8 pm until around 9:30ish and there will be drinks afterwards. 

I asked (for my brother, who might attend), if one had to leave early if it would be O.K. and he said that one could leave at the break, but just be sure to register on the web site. 

I plan to arrive for the complimentary drinks and reception at 4 pm and stay for the dinner. 

It will be great to see Alayne and Jacks again, and of course, the rest of the MP team.  I also look forward to meeting Amy in person and hopefully some of the rest of you who live in the area.

I'll try my best to make it, but I definitely will miss the Sunday presentation due to previous plans.

If there is a get-together on Thursday, I can probably attend.

I thought I should mention that it is only the Friday seminar that is free.  The conference on Saturday and Sunday is fairly expensive to attend.

Jacks and I plan to be there at 4 and will stay through the dinner after the talks. Really looking forward to seeing some very familiar faces again - TM, Meg, Joyce. And meeting Amy, Paul and others for the first time.

I don't know of anything going on Thursday night. I would have liked to have planned something, but belatedly remembered that I have a Thurs evening class I can't miss. 

However, it would be nice to put faces to the MP folks who are coming, like Mindy and Efrenz. How will we know who you are? :)  If you'd like, you can pm me your cell #'s and we can find you there. 

It be easier if I just wore my wizard's cap, then you'd see me from a mile off. Alas, I gave it up, as it doesn't really block much light. :D

See you all there!
Alayne

P.S. I think that traffic will be pretty hellacious getting to/into UCLA. The LA Film Festival is also running there concurrently with crowds of folks. When I drove past the other day, it looked like a big cluster yuck. Probably giving yourself some extra time to get there, especially if you're unfamiliar with the area, isn't a bad idea.

This story was just on NPR  re Alzheimer's and calcium regulation. Just wondering if it could be linked to the MP theory, as the 1,25D would be affecting the calcium regulation, hence the findings in this study. Anyway, since it is topical, it might be discussed at the conference.

Hope all goes well!
