what would we typically measure to make an aggregate health indicator and to measure cell senescence and regeneration? how much would it typically cost?
I suggest you contact Luigi Fontana at Wash U in St Louis for this. He has lots of experience with age markers in humans.

Hi All,Were not quercetin a supplement that is widely used with little apparent effect on lifespan according to studies, why should it extend lifespan now? So apparently because it only extirpates a small spectrum of senescent cell types – and disatanib (note the word “satan” hidden in that) then must be the drug conferring the advantage – or it requires both drugs working in synergy (it’s not let out is it?)? If quercetin is used by itself – shouldn’t it produce measurable effects on tissues with epithelial origins – like skin? If so, couldn’t it be applied topically to limited regions of skin to test that effect in humans. Some of you out there specialize in skin products – can the quercetin be made to penetrate down to the basal cells? Maybe dissolving it in DMS, peels, abrasion ? As someone said that alone is worth a fortune. It’s something that could be started tonight.
