Senescent cells

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.
