Does An Immune Role for Beta- Amyloid Create a Therapeutic Dilemma for SENS?

Some scientists have reported that viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens may help drive Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases, and that the body uses beta-amyloid protein to fight them off. That seems to imply that it’s a bad idea to remove Abeta from the brain. Here we explain how the SENS “damage-repair” strategy leaps over that therapeutic dilemma — just as it does with other kinds of aging damage.

For our SENSible Question series, a supporter asks if there are any common lab tests available that could be used as a readout of a person’s burden of inflammatory signals from senescent cells. The answer is ‘no,’ unfortunately, but we review a number of hard-to-access or research-only tests that might be able to tell us something with a bit more work.
