Senolytic Therapy to Modulate Progression of Alzheimer’s Disease (SToMP-AD)
Purpose of this Study
The underlying processes driving chronic neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and related neurodegenerative disorders are largely unknown. Moreover, individuals with AD suffer from more age-associated health conditions than other older adults without AD. This research will use a combination of oral medications (dasatinib and quercetin) in an intermittent administration regimen for 12 weeks to identify whether the treatment will reach the spinal fluid or cross the blood-brain barrier, and whether it can affect the cellular life cycle and cellular inflammation that goes with aging.
