ABC News-(KGO-TV in San Francisco): "Lab compound could help fight age-related diseases"

Gordon Lithgow, PhD, Director of the Larry L. Hillblom Center for Integrative Studies of Aging at the Buck Institute and current LLHF network grantee, discusses his active research that explains how a common laboratory dye, Basic Yellow 1, slows Alzheimer's disease-like pathology in worms.

In an interview with ABC (KGO) News, Dr. Lithgow and Silvestre Alavez, PhD, a research scientist in the Lithgow lab, discuss how Thioflavin T (ThT) or Basic Yellow No. 1 extend lifespan in healthy nematode worms by more than 50 percent and slowed the disease process in worms bred to mimic aspects of Alzheimer's.
