Crowdfunding project to test life extension drugs on mice


#1

Researchers in Germany want to test senloytic drugs on mice to see if they could eventually be used in humans to extend healthy lifespan. Senolytic drugs clear out senescent cells that have accumulated in the body — cells that have stopped functioning but haven’t died like they’re supposed to. The accumulation of senescent cells is considered to be one of the major causes of aging. Senolytic drugs could eventually be used in humans not only to make us live longer, but also to make us biologically younger — to reverse and prevent aging itself. Consider contributing to this crowdfunding project so these drugs can be tested on mice!
