MDM2 Antagonists Attenuate Harmful Signaling from Senescent Cells

A fair number of the scientists working towards therapies to address cellular senescence, one of the causes of aging, are more interested in suppressing signaling from these cells than in destroying them. Cynically, a treatment one has to keep using consistently is much more interesting to pharmaceutical companies than a treatment that only has to be applied once every few years at most.
