Clearing Out Old Cells Could Extend Joint Health, Stop Osteoarthritis

from Johns Hopkins Medicine via EurekAlert!

In a preclinical study in mice and human cells, researchers report that selectively removing old or "senescent" cells from joints could stop and even reverse the progression of osteoarthritis. The findings, published in Nature Medicine, support growing evidence that senescent cells contribute to age-related diseases and demonstrate that using drug therapies to remove them from the joint not only reduces the development of posttraumatic osteoarthritis, but creates an environment for new cartilage to grow and repair joints. more
