The Society for Applied Research in Aging (SARA) is pleased to announce that its new website, http://www.ageresearchsociety.com is now available for access by practitioners of age-management/longevity medicine. The SARA site is intended to provide multiple levels of support for practitioners in their day to day clinical operations. At the most basic level, SARA members will have access to peer reviewed journal articles that are relevant to health maintenance during aging.
These will provide the reader with a historical perspective of specific treatments so that he/she may better understand the basis of current technology. There will also be pre-prints from the official SARA journal, Clinical Interventions in Aging (CIA), so that practitioners have early access to emerging information on patient treatment and management. Also, links to other related societies will be posted so as to provide readers with the broadest spectrum of information on issues related to aging, health maintenance and life extension.
Perhaps the most important aspect of the new website is that it will host a forum (http://www.ageresearchsociety.com/forums.asp) in which current issues relevant to the practice of anti-aging medicine may be discussed and debated. While SARA members will have the opportunity to post to the forum and to initiate discussion on specific topics, anyone using the site will have read-only access. The intent of this interactive forum is to have practitioners come together under an umbrella of professional interest and participation so as to bring consensus on issues that may be controversial or poorly understood. As these goals are reached, the Society will publish "white papers" or recommended guidelines for practice of specific interventions in aging.
To help facilitate development of standards of practice in age-management medicine the Society will also publish protocols for specific interventions. These will be provided to the membership free of cost with hopes that findings resulting from their use will be submitted back to SARA for inclusion in its comprehensive database. Significant outcomes will be published in CIA so as to provide evidence-based information for interventions that may not be suited for formal clinical trials and FDA approval as under current standards for drug registration. Thus in keeping with its stated goals, SARA is pleased to offer its website as an interactive part of clinical practice. We hope that the community age management practitioners will join us in helping realize its full potential.
