  • Publication number: 20200360386
    Abstract: Senescent cell medicine encompasses the paradigm that many conditions that are associated with aging or tissue damage are caused or mediated by senescent cells. This disclosure shows that HSP90, pI3-kinase, proteasome, HDAC, and p97 pathways are all active in senescent cells, and can be used as an effective means for removing senescent cells from a target tissue. Exemplary inhibitors of each of these pathways are provided. Also provided is a new genus of p97 inhibitor molecules. The structure includes a core 4 amino pyrimidine ring system, substituted at the 2 position with a nitrogen atom of an amino substituent or a N heterocycle. The 4 amino substituent of the core ring system is optionally linked to a substituted phenyl group. Any of the inhibitors referred to in this disclosure can be screened for senolytic activity and developed for the treatment of conditions such as osteoarthritis, ophthalmic disease, pulmonary disease, and atherosclerosis.

  • Publication number: 20200354336
    Abstract: This invention is based on the discovery that many lung diseases associated with aging are mediated at least in part by cells bearing a senescent phenotype. Senescent cells accumulate with age, and express factors that contribute to the pathophysiology of age related conditions. The severity of age-related conditions typically correlates with the abundance of senescent cells: thus, clearing senescent cells can help abrogate the condition: providing symptomatic relief, and potentially inhibiting disease progression. In accordance with this invention, a family of Bcl protein inhibitors has been developed for the treatment of lung diseases. These senolytic agents have an appropriate dose and specificity profile to be effective in the clinical management of previously intractable pulmonary diseases.

  • Publication number: 20200338094
    Abstract: A library of heterocyclic compounds has been screened to identify particular compounds that have high inhibitory capacity for the Bcl family of regulatory proteins. Compounds identified as Bcl antagonists have been further screened to select pharmaceutical agents with both high potency and high specificity for eliminating senescent cells in comparison with replicative or quiescent cells of the same tissue type. Particular structures are identified in this disclosure that eliminate senescent cells with an EC50 in the nanomole range and a specificity around or above 100-fold. In accordance with this invention, heterocyclic compounds provided in this disclosure can be formulated for the treatment of a range of age-related conditions caused or mediated by senescent cells. Such conditions are exemplified by ophthalmic conditions, pulmonary conditions, and osteoarthritis.

  • Patent number: 10689416
    Abstract: The proteasome inhibitors of this invention include peptide-based compounds with a short linear sequence of amino acids. An oxo or thio group is attached to the N-terminal amino acid. A protein-reactive electrophilic group such as an epoxyketone, an aziridinylketone, or a beta-lactone is attached to the C-terminal amino acid. Upon contact with a proteasome complex in a target cell, the electrophilic group reacts with a functional group in or near a binding pocket or active site of the proteasome, forming a covalent bond and thereby inactivating the proteasome. These and other proteasome inhibitors can be screened for binding affinity and an ability to selectively eliminate senescent cells or cancer cells. Compounds that selectively remove senescent cells can be developed for the treatment of conditions such as osteoarthritis, ophthalmic disease, pulmonary disease, and atherosclerosis.

  • Patent number: 10655144
    Abstract: This disclosure provides non-human animal models for age-related disorders and age-sensitive traits, particularly those caused by senescence-inducing stimuli, wherein the models comprise transgenes selectively expressed by senescent cells. The disclosure further provides methods for identifying therapeutic agents effective for treating or preventing age-related disorders and age-sensitive traits using the animal models, therapeutic agents identified using such methods, pharmaceutical compositions comprising the identified therapeutic agents, and methods of treating or preventing age-related disorders and age-sensitive traits.

  • 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.
