Deciduous Therapeutics aims to positively impact human health span through the development of novel medicines that activate the endogenous immune mechanism responsible for the elimination of senescent cells.

Our Science

Senescent cells, which are characterized by irreversible damage and an inflammatory secretome, are considered a key driving force behind many age-related diseases. Due to a failure in immune surveillance, senescent cells accumulate and impact their local environment by inducing inflammation and promoting extracellular matrix remodeling, thus resulting in a myriad of metabolic and fibrotic consequences. Therefore, enabling the removal of senescent cells dramatically ameliorates disease pathologies in many age-related diseases, leading to overall improvements in health-span.

At Deciduous Therapeutics, we have discovered novel molecules that can activate a critical endogenous immune surveillance mechanism to selectively remove senescent cells and thereby treat several classes of age-related diseases.
