Japanese scientists create vaccine to eradicate cells that cause aging

Senescent cells are those that have ceased to divide but still do not die. They cause damage to nearby healthy cells when they release chemicals that cause inflammation.

The team created a peptide vaccination based on the amino acid found in the protein.

The vaccine allows the body to produce antibodies that attach to senescent senescent cell, which is removed by white blood cells adhering to the antibodies.
