Politics & Life Sciences (PLS) with Dean L. Fanelli, Ph.D.

Apr 1, 2022

Matthew Yousefzadeh, Ph.D., with the Institute on the Biology of Aging and Metabolism, Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, has published more than 30 scientific publications with heavy emphasis on cellular senescence and aging. His latest study, published in 2021, in the journal Science, showed that senescent cells exacerbate COVID-19, which may explain why older populations struggle with recovery from the virus more than younger populations.   Yousefzadeh, who is also a scientific advisory board member of SRW, says beyond the hyped senolytics drugs, nutraceuticals also provide an answer as a preventative strategy to rid the body of senescent cells (a.k.a.: zombie cells) and improve health. In fact, the Mayo Clinic is currently conducting a trial on how fisetin helps with frailty in older adults and in a separate trial with older women investigating the use of fisetin to remove senescent cells to confirm whether it has measurable health benefits. Yousefzadeh was instrumental in advising in the development of SRW's Cel3 Renewal, a dietary supplement that helps clear out and recycle senescent cells in the body.
