Zombie Hunting Medicines

Mayo Clinic researchers have discovered that removing zombie or senescent cells from the body can help eliminate some of the aspects of aging. These cells no longer function properly, but remain in place, causing other normal activity to malfunction and contribute to conditions that include frailty, bone and muscle loss, vision problems, hair loss and other symptoms of aging. Use of Mayo-developed senolytic drugs removes the cells and may lead to healthier aging.
