  • Publication number: 20190269675
    Abstract: This invention establishes a new paradigm for treatment of Parkinson's disease (PD) by eliminating senescent cells that reside in or around the site of the disease pathophysiology. Exposure of test subjects to the herbicide paraquat (PQ) increases the risk for developing Parkinson's disease. The data in this disclosure show that PQ induces a senescence arrest and SASP in astrocytes, in culture and in vivo in mice, and senescent cell markers were present in astrocytes in midbrain tissue from PD patients. In a transgenic mouse model, senescent cell ablation protected against PQ-induced PD-like neuropathology. Removal of senescent cells from affected sites using small molecule agents that specifically target senescent cells can help prevent or ameliorate signs and symptoms of the disease.

  • Patent number: 10328058
    Abstract: Foamy macrophages with senescence markers accumulate in the subendothelial space at the onset of atherosclerosis where they drive pathology by increasing expression of key atherogenic and inflammatory cytokines and chemokines. In advanced lesions, senescent cells promote features of plaque instability, including elastic fiber degradation and fibrous cap thinning, by heightening metalloprotease production. This invention provides methods and materials for treating arthritis by removing senescent cells in or around atherosclerotic plaques, thereby stabilizing the plaques, inhibiting rupture of the plaques and pathological sequelae that manifest as coronary artery disease.

  • Publication number: 20190000846
    Abstract: Foamy macrophages with senescence markers accumulate in the subendothelial space at the onset of atherosclerosis where they drive pathology by increasing expression of key atherogenic and inflammatory cytokines and chemokines. This invention provides senolytic agents that remove senescent cells that are present in or around atherosclerotic plaques. The agents inhibit or reverse thinning of the fibrous cap on atherosclerotic plaques. This has the effect of stabilizing the plaques, inhibiting rupture and preventing pathological sequelae that manifest as coronary artery disease. Senolytic agents used in this way complement the action of statins and other drugs that cause plaque regression. Thus, senolytic agents and lipid lowering drugs can be used in combination for enhanced therapeutic effect.
