Extracellular Vesicle-Contained eNAMPT Delays Aging and Extends Lifespan in Mice: Cell Metabolism
So Peter Thiel's vampire blood transfusion startup, taking blood from young people, was based on mouse studies where transfusing young mice blood into old mice improved the old mice (and the reverse made the young mice worse), but the reasons weren't well understood. Now, they seem to have isolated eNAMPT as a potential reason. Now, how to make eNAMPT in volume, and human trials, are the next step/

Cautioning consumers against receiving young donor plasma infusions that are promoted as unproven treatment for varying conditions
FDA clamping down on vampire blood treatment. Apparently one of those young blood providers, Ambrosia, immediately closed shop when this was issued.

Ambrosia Clinical Trial
Based on those trials where old mice were blood circuit joined to young mice and experienced significant improvment, so exploiting the young to support the old, not unlike vampires...

Artificial spleen cleans up blood
Nanobeads coated with MBL proteins can capture assorted bacteria/fungi, then the beads can be sifted out of blood using magnets, effectively cleansing blood of infection.

Fujitsu to Launch Mobile Service for Diabetic Patients -- Tech-On!
Almost there. Dedicated cable is dumb, but understandable since the bluetooth health device profile stuff is not ideal, and this is marketed towards elderly diabetics, who are likely to already use these "Rakuraku" simplified feature phones and need something simple. Now if that bloodless glucose monitoring sensor technology finally comes together, and linked with a bluetooth radio, diabetics can avoid the hardest part about glucose monitoring; that stabbing the finger business to draw blood that really hurts.

BGStar and iBGStar designed with you to take charge of life with diabetes - BGStar®
Still have to stab yourself so not quite there yet, but definitely increasing the the usability and convenience of blood glucose monitoring for diabetics. Still, I would prefer the the non-invasive IR laser blood glucose measurement device that's currently under development.

"Prescription" Tattoos Could Monitor Blood-Glucose Levels in Diabetics | Ecouterre
Nice non-invasive alternative to pricking your finger all day to get blood glucose readings. You could potentially compact the necessary reader equipment to a watch sized device, and put the invisible tattoo on both wrists.
