SENESCENT CANCER CELLS
« on: January 26, 2020, 03:02:06 pm »
Sharing some important knowledge with you all.

Besides cancer stem cells, the other problematic cells are senescent cancer cells. Not all cancer cells can be forced into apoptosis (programmed cell death) when treated with conventional and/or alternative therapy. Instead of dying, some cancer cells will simply stop dividing and multiplying and enter a senescent or dormant-like state. This is called senescence-associated growth arrest (SAGA), and while it sounds good, it is accompanied by something not so good called senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP) in which there is overactive secretion of pro-inflammatory, cancer-promoting compounds by the senescent cancer cells.
It is good that senescent cancer cells don’t divide and multiply like regular cancer cells, however, because senescent cancer cells don’t die, they retain their dysfunctional cellular metabolism and secrete pro-inflammatory, cancer-promoting compounds. If too many senescent cancer cells accumulate and the immune system doesn’t kill enough of them, this can lead to further growth and spread of cancer. Because cancer patients are usually immunosuppressed due to disease and/or treatment, we are pioneering the use of repurposed medicines and natural compounds that have been shown to target senescent cells by directly killing them and/or curbing the effects of SASP.
