Dasatinib + Quercetin Preserves Cognition in Aging Rats

“Long-term treatment with ABT-263 or D + Q, initiated in middle-age [rats], decreased peripheral markers of tissue senescence and systemic inflammation, and preserved hippocampal-dependent cognitive function and NMDAR-mediated synaptic transmission […]”

“The results indicate that preserved cognition was associated with the removal of peripheral senescent cells, decreasing systemic inflammation […]”

“Rats were treated via oral gavage for 5 consecutive days with a 2 week break in between two cycles […]. A total of eight cycles of treatment over the span of 6 months were administered before the rats were behaviorally characterized for motor and cognitive performance. […]”
