These cells, known as senescent cells, have been shown to help the body age so scientists are trying to get rid of them to fight aging! After testing on mice, the one treated did not develop the aging disease cataracts and was able to exercise on a treadmill for much longer than the mice with its senescent cells remaining. The mouse with the aging cells removed also showed no signs of wrinkling!
Another breakthrough in the study is a type of mouse has been engineered that can rid their bodies of senescent cells by getting a drug that tells the cells to self-destruct!
