Researchers have once again demonstrated that a senolytic therapy capable of selectively destroying senescent cells can reduce tau aggregation and consequent loss of cognitive function in a mouse model of alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease, the primary cause of dementia in the elderly, imposes a tremendous social and economic burden on modern society in japan, the burden of the disease in 2050 is estimated to be a half a trillion us dollars, a figure equivalent to the government's annual revenues. Making an ad mouse model that incorporates both aβ and tau pathologies in a more ad-relevant context has been greatly sought after but difficult to accomplish, said senior author virginia m-y lee, phd, director of the center for neurodegenerative disease research (cndr) at penn.
