This study demonstrates the efficacy of NKG2D chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) engineered T cells in targeting and eliminating stress induced senescent embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) and astrocytes (AST) paving the way for future investigations into the therapeutic applicability of NKG2D-targeting CAR-T cells in naturally aged organisms and models of aging-associated brain diseases in vivo.
