A study published in Aging has shown that inhibiting histone deacetylases (HDACs), an approach used for treating cancer and other diseases, can lead to cellular senescence. 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 review published in the Journal of Neuroinflammation explores the potential application of senotherapies, particularly in the context of treating age-related macular degeneration [1]. Introducing cellular senescence One of the most advanced approaches to treating aging and age-related diseases is that of addressing the presence of harmful senescent cells, which begin to accumulate with advancing...

Researchers have demonstrated that epigenetic age can be halved in rats by using signals commonly found in the blood. Epigenetic changes One of the proposed reasons we age are the changes to gene expression that our cells experience as we get older; these are commonly called epigenetic alterations. These alterations harm the fundamental functions of...
