HUSS researcher Ferenc Torma publishes article in Aging Cell

Ferenc Torma, researcher at the Research Center for Molecular Exercise Science was one of the co-authors of a paper published in Aging Cell on the association between gut microbiome and acceleration.

A scientific paper titled “Alterations of the gut microbiome are associated with epigenetic age acceleration and physical fitness” was published in the journal Aging Cell, co-authored by Ferenc Torma, assistant research fellow at the Research Center for Molecular Exercise Science at the Hungarian University of Sports Science (HUSS).

The other first author of the paper is Csaba Kerepesi, researcher at the HUN-REN Research Institute of Computer Science and Automation (HUN-REN SZTAKI).

The authors of the article presume that an increased entropy in the gut microbiome of physically active middle-aged/old individuals is associated with accelerated epigenetic aging, decreased fitness, or impaired health status. They also observed that a slower epigenetic aging and higher fitness level can be linked to altered abundance of some bacterial species often linked to anti-inflammatory effects.

The overall our data suggest that alterations in the microbiome can be associated with epigenetic age acceleration and physical fitness.
