Antibiotics can have a rejuvenating effect on ageing by targeting senescent cells

Antibiotics can eliminate the senescent cell population associated with ageing

According to new research conducted in the UK, antibiotics may extend life expectancy.

Model organisms have shown that genetic experiments to eliminate \”senescent cells\” – cells older than 10 years, which no longer divide – can alleviate age-related malfunction.

Scientists have now shown, for the first time, that an FDA approved antibiotic – Azithromycin can effectively target and eradicate senescent cellular in culture.
