In a recent study, researchers from the Buck Institute have shown that cellular senescence, one of the hallmarks of aging, is partially responsible for Alzheimer's disease. 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,...
Today, we wanted to draw your attention to a recent study showing an association between the accumulation of Tau proteins, which are misfolded proteins that typically indicate Alzheimer's disease, and senescent cells. The researchers also showed that Tau pathology was improved by the use of drugs that remove non-dividing senescent cells. Unfortunately, this journal paper...
