Senescent Cells in Bone Marrow Contribute to Immunosenescence

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Today, we want to point out a new study suggesting that senescent cells in bone marrow cell populations contribute to the decline of the hematopoietic system, particularly the hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) that live in the bone marrow and produce our blood cells [1].

The hematopoietic system and immunosenescence

The hematopoietic system is the system of organs and tissues, including the bone marrow, spleen, thymus and lymph nodes, involved in the creation of cellular blood components.
