Senescent cells, which are characterized by irreversible damage and an inflammatory secretome, are considered a key driving force behind many age-related diseases. Due to a failure in immune surveillance, senescent cells accumulate and impact their local environment by inducing inflammation and promoting extracellular matrix remodeling, thus resulting in a myriad of metabolic and fibrotic consequences. Therefore, enabling the removal of senescent cells dramatically ameliorates disease pathologies in many age-related diseases, leading to overall improvements in health-span. At Deciduous Therapeutics, we have discovered novel molecules that can activate a critical endogenous immune surveillance mechanism to selectively remove senescent cells and thereby treat several classes of age-related diseases.Something looks off?
