A lipid metabolite could serve as a novel biomarker to test the performance of senolytics, according to a new study [1]. Such a biomarker can be detected from blood or urine, allowing for non-invasive testing, and experiments have shown that it plays a functional role in cellular senescence. Slowing down to stay safe Cellular senescence...

At Ending Age-Related Diseases 2020, Prof. Judith Campisi of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging discussed the effects and usage of senolytics, drugs that remove senescent cells from the body. She went into the details of the stress and damage signals that cause cells to become senescent and the markers of senescent cells, noting...

May 15, 2020
There has been a lot happening with the Ending Age-Related Diseases 2020 conference, so today is ideal for sharing some of the exciting things that we have planned. Catch the early bird! First things first: Time is running out to get an Early Bird discount for what will be the biggest online aging research conference...

Cellular senescence, discovered in 1961 by Leonard Hayflick and Paul Moorhead, is a state in which cells no longer perform their functions, instead emitting harmful chemicals that turn other cells senescent. 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,...

Today, we want to spotlight a new publication that charts the senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP), which consists of the various secreted signals given out by senescent cells during aging. Senescent cells and the SASP As we get older, an increasing number of our cells enter into a state known as senescence. They cease dividing and...

At Undoing Aging 2019, we interviewed some of the best researchers who are involved in discovering therapies for the root causes of aging. Their research aims to ameliorate the damages of aging and may one day lead to a future without age-related diseases. Dr. Judith Campisi, one of the speakers at this conference, is a...
