Tag: Senescent cells

June 29, 2020
Researchers have published a new study suggesting that some of the inflammatory signals secreted by senescent cells could be used as a biomarker to measure aging and health. What are senescent cells? As you age, increasing numbers of your cells enter into a state known as senescence. Senescent cells do not divide or support the...

Could the immune system itself be the best way to purge senescent cells, which accumulate as we age, from the body? A new review takes a look at the role of the immune system in removing these problematic cells. What are senescent cells? As you age, increasing numbers of your cells enter into a state...

Researchers are starting to test the use of immunotherapies, normally used for treating cancer, to target senescent cells, which accumulate in our bodies as we age and are implicated in many age-related conditions. What are senescent cells? As you age, increasing numbers of your cells enter into a state known as senescence. Senescent cells do...

Senescent cell accumulation is a likely reason we age, but removing some populations of specialized cells that have turned senescent may have negative consequences, according to a new study. What are senescent cells? As you get older, more and more of your cells enter into a state known as cellular senescence. Senescent cells no longer...

Today is one of those days when we must deliver some bad news. Science is hard, particularly when it concerns the biology of aging, and things do not always go to plan. There are no guarantees that a project will succeed, and, quite simply, the more shots on goal we can get, the more chance...

On Tuesday, June 30, the Journal Club returns, and our special guest Dr. João Pedro de Magalhães will be giving a talk and taking questions about the CellAge database. Dr. João Pedro de Magalhães and his team at the University of Liverpool recently published a new study in which they used a systems biology approach...
