Stress-response Hormesis and Aging: "That Which Does Not Kill Us Makes Us Stronger"

David Gems et al. Cell Metab. .

Abstract

Hormesis refers to the beneficial effects of a treatment that at a higher intensity is harmful. In one form of hormesis, sublethal exposure to stressors induces a response that results in stress resistance. The principle of stress-response hormesis is increasingly finding application in studies of aging, where hormetic increases in life span have been seen in several animal models.
