Research published today in Nature Aging has described a machine learning algorithm that finds senescent cell-removing drugs (senolytics) and compared the algorithm's discoveries to existing compounds. A quest for effective therapeutics What Are Senolytics? Senotherapeutics for Senescent CellsSenolytics work by targeting one of several pro-survival pathways that senescent cells use to evade apoptosis and cling...

AI Drug Discovery
A new study conducted by Insilico Medicine in collaboration with leading aging research institutions has identified novel therapeutic targets for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a devastating age-associated neurodegenerative disease [1]. Disease and aging: not that different Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a rare neuromuscular disease. It is most famous for afflicting the well-known physicist Stephen Hawking,...

A study published in EBioMedicine has shown how a peptide targets and kills senescent cancer cells, potentially paving the way for a new class of interventions. Why we Age: Cellular SenescenceAs your body ages, more of your cells become senescent. Senescent cells do not divide or support the tissues of which they are part; instead,...

A recent study published in Aging Cell has turned up potential new therapeutics to target the aging extracellular matrix (ECM). Longevity drug discoveryΒ  The discovery of new targets injects fresh lifeblood into the race to develop anti-aging compounds. The strategies used to identify these targets have seen significant innovation recently, with various types of databases...
