In this study, they found these drugs can kill senescent cells from cultures of human fat tissue. The tissue was donated by individuals with obesity who were known to have metabolic troubles. Without treatment, the human fat tissues induced metabolic problems in immune-deficient mice. After treatment with dasatinib and quercetin, the harmful effects of the fat tissue were almost eliminated. Targeting p21Cip1 highly expressing cells in adipose tissue alleviates insulin resistance in obesity Insulin resistance is a pathological state often associated with obesity, representing a major risk factor for type 2...
