Spinal Disc Degeneration
A group of researchers has found that early long-term treatment of mice with the popular senolytic duo dasatinib and quercetin alleviates symptoms of intervertebral disc degeneration, a major age-related cause of disability [1]. Age-related disease with early onset Conventional wisdom says that our spines just were not built to last for as long as humans...
Spinal degradation
Recent research out of Frontiers in Pharmacology has shown that a natural herbal compound reduces senescence and intervertebral disc degeneration in mice. 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, they emit potentially harmful...

A paper published in Aging has shown that it is possible to treat spinal disc degeneration through altering the epigenetics of macrophages. Macrophages and inflammaging Macrophages are the clean-up crew of the immune system, engulfing and destroying harmful germs, but their polarization is a double-edged sword. On one hand, M1 macrophages serve on the front...
Spinal degradation
The presence of senescent cells has been implicated in a wide range of age-related diseases and even conditions such as T1 diabetes. Today, we want to draw your attention to a new publication that explores the relationship between senescent cells and intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD). It was already known that senescent cells increase during the...
