Senescence is primarily caused by telomere shortening and DNA damage, and senescent cells are known to contribute to multiple diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's,...
We interviewed Dr. Peter de Keizer, a researcher who is engaged in studying senescent cells and designing therapies to destroy them in order to delay and prevent age-related diseases. Cleara Biotech is currently using his research to develop a senolytic peptide that accomplishes this via interfering with the interactions between p53 and FOXO4. Senescent cells...
