Every day billions of our cells undergo a "programmed cell death" called apoptosis. This natural and essential process plays an important role in the deconstruction and permanent reconstruction of our body. Under normal conditions, apoptosis ensures the organization of our physical appearance, the architecture of our organs but also the elimination of supernumerary cells, damaged or dysfunctional. The secret of the development of living organisms and their homeostasis lies in the balance between proliferation (growth) and cell loss, where any imbalance or disruption of apoptosis is the key to understanding many pathologies. During aging, this equilibrium is modified because of slower cell growth and degradation of cell functions. This degradation is accompanied by a reduction in protein synthesis and a slowing down of cell division. This apoptotic imbalance is characterised by excessive apoptosis leading to damage to vital cells such as nerve cells through the aggregation of a peptide: β-amyloid.
