Senescent Cells

Senescent cell clearance could be one of the big treatments to at least slow down one of the underlying causes of aging.

Senescent cells have stopped dividing and, even worse, secrete tens of biologically active proteins, including pro-inflammatory factors, proteases, pro-fibrotic factors and growth factors. This Senescence Associated Secretory Phenotype (SASP) can induce senescence in neighbouring cells and is associated with many age-related diseases.
