Senolytics: A new class of drugs

Senlyotics are a new class of drugs that help remove stubborn senescent cells that refuse to enter apopotosis (programmed cell death) and instead remain in the body sending out toxic signals which have a range of negative consequences. Senescent cells should be removed by the immune system or by their own self-destruction programs, however over time they escape this process and accumulate where they are not wanted, such as in the joints.

Stem Cell Rejuvenation

At the Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Pittsburgh, fast-aging elderly mice with a usual lifespan of approximately 21 days were injected with stem cells from younger mice. They were given an injection of stem cells approximately four days before they were expected to die, and the results were outstanding.
