Data on Neurodegeneration Reported by A.R. Mendelsohn and Colleagues (Cellular Senescence as the Key Intermediate in Tau-Mediated Neurodegeneration)

Genomics & Genetics Weekly


By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Genomics & Genetics Weekly -- Investigators discuss new findings in Neurology - Neurodegeneration. According to news reporting from Sunnyvale, California, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Neuroinflammation is thought to play a key role in the progression of neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer's disease (AD). Given the apparent nexus of inflammatory disease with the secretory-associated senescence phenotype (SASP) of cellular senescence, two reports found that tau-mediated neurodegeneration involves induction of senescence in astrocytes, microglia, and possibly even neurons."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "Elimination of senescent cells by pharmacologically induced genetic ablation or by senolytic drugs blocks progression of mutant human tau-mediated neurodegeneration in mice. This work suggests a working hypothesis through which tau activation leads to senescence and then tau propagation throughout the brain is supported by, and neurotoxicity is caused by, SASP, forming a pathological positive feedback loop."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Although preliminary, these data suggest that the development of senolytics for AD and other tauopathies, especially early disease, and possibly senomodulatory drugs for later stage neurodegenerative disease may prove fruitful."
