The International Space Station, at an initial cost of $100 billion and considerable cost to maintain, with six laboratories powered by solar energy, provides an extraordinary facility to study the accelerated aging process in Space.

Dove Medical Press is proud to announce the inclusion of "Correcting magnesium deficiencies may prolong life" in Global Medical Discovery (GMD), an online medical and scientific source that features breaking research.
This study, originally published in Dove's Clinical Interventions in Aging (CIA), was judged by GMD's advisory team to be of key importance in science and medicine. Papers are selected from over 20,000 articles published each week from noteworthy peer reviewed journals. The article is available for viewing HERE.
Using The International Space Station to study the accelerated aging process in microgravity, Dr. William J. Rowe was able to conclude that corrections of significant Magnesium (Mg) ion reductions, with their associated catecholamine elevations, will prolong life in microgravity, thereby surmising that corrections of the very common and often unrecognized Mg deficits on Earth may prolong life. The study strongly concludes that similar studies would be beneficial.
According to Dr. Rowe, "The International Space Station, at an initial cost of $100 billion and considerable cost to maintain, with six laboratories powered by solar energy, provides an extraordinary facility to study the accelerated aging process in Space."
Dr. Rowe is a board certified specialist in Internal Medicine. He received his M.D. at the University of Cincinnati and was in private practice in Toledo, Ohio for 34 years. He is a former Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Ohio, School of Medicine at Toledo. He studied 3 world class extraordinary endurance athletes and published their exercise related Mg deficiencies. This triggered an 18 year pursuit of the cardiovascular complications of Space flight.
"It is my ambition and hope that Clinical Interventions in Aging will gain international reputation for the quality of its publications. So long as contributors such as Dr. Rowe continue to support CIA as a platform for presentation of their findings, I'm sure that goal will be achieved and exceeded," says Dr Richard F Walker, journal editor-in-chief.
Clinical Interventions in Aging is an international, impact factor, peer-reviewed journal focusing on evidence-based reports on the value or lack thereof of treatments intended to prevent or delay the onset of maladaptive correlates of aging in human beings.
