Reanalysis of findings from a senolytics clinical trial

To follow up Preliminary findings from a senolytics clinical trial:

“The central hypothesis tested in our article is that a brief course of the senolytic drug combination, Dasatinib plus Quercetin (D+Q), can reduce senescent cell abundance in humans, specifically focusing on targeting adipose tissue in subjects with diabetes and kidney dysfunction, a condition in which adipose tissue senescent cell burden is known to be increased.

Although we reported a statistically significant decrease in skin senescent cells in the 9 subjects whose skin data were reported in the original article, that conclusion did not hold up upon reanalysis.

The overall conclusion of our article that D+Q can target senescent cells in humans holds upon reanalysis of the data, at least in adipose tissue and as reflected by a composite of blood SASP [senescence-associated secretory phenotype] factors, but we have not shown this in skin here.” “Corrigendum to ‘Senolytics decrease senescent cells in humans: Preliminary report from a clinical trial of Dasatinib plus Quercetin in individuals with diabetic kidney disease’”
