UNITY Biotechnologies Selects a New Senolytic Candidate

14-Jan-2019

Key points from article :

Selected UBX1967 as new lead drug to treat age-related diseases of the eye.

Turns off signalling proteins that encourage cells to not activate programmed cell suicide (apoptosis).

The drug may be effective among age-related diseases not involving the eyes.

Animal toxicity testing to start in second half of 2019.

Very early days but good to have more senolytics in the pipeline
