Tests of an anti-aging therapy in mice are boosting hopes at Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota about a potential COVID-19 treatment that could reduce deaths and hospitalizations and improve vaccine effectiveness.

Survival increased in mice with COVID-like illnesses when they received drugs that removed senescent cells — sometimes called "retirement" or "zombie" cells that no longer divide or grow, but persist in the body, according to research published Tuesday by Mayo and U researchers in the journal Science.

Kirkland and colleagues were among the first to hypothesize how infectious agents prompt senescent cells to increase harmful inflammation in the body. They also discovered how substances such as fisetin — a coloring agent in fruits and vegetables — clear out senescent cells.
