Elderly eating healthy
An extremely comprehensive review published in Food Science & Biotechnology has summarized the current state of research regarding cellular senescence and basic dietary components. An aging-focused outlook The researchers begin their paper with a discussion of aging, citing a paper that frames it in terms of homeostasis and physiological decline [1]. They discuss its primacy...
Scientists have improved the potential effectiveness of a stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis by targeting senescent cells [1]. Stem cell exhaustion and osteoarthritis Osteoarthritis is an age-related disease that affects joints by degrading cartilage. While not fatal in itself, osteoarthritis negatively affects mobility and quality of life, and it can decrease lifespan and healthspan. Several...

NEW YORK - June 15, 2022 - NOVOS, a company that develops science-based products to slow down aging, announced results of two studies demonstrating that the combination of ingredients in its products, NOVOS Core and NOVOS Boost, protect against DNA damage and cellular aging (senescence). A study found that a combination of the 12 ingredients...

In their publication in eLife Sciences, researchers at Newcastle University in the UK have illustrated how radiation-induced damage can be somewhat ameliorated with senolytics. These researchers focused on navitoclax along with the well-known combination of dasatinib and quercetin. A focus on cancer survivors The researchers begin this paper with a discussion of cancer treatments. They...
Cells Under Microscope
A team of researchers publishing in Aging has developed a method of identifying senescent cells through their physical morphology, potentially making future senescence research much easier. Senescent cells look different Before modern biomarkers of senescence were eludicated, cell size was considered to be one of its defining features, and the researchers cite a 1969 paper...
Broken bone
A study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation has reported that senescent cells are largely responsible for slow bone healing in aged animals and that senolytics, which remove these harmful cells, can speed bone regeneration. A brief outline of bone healing BoneBone tissue serves as the primary structural component of our bodies. It protects...
