Pattern of change in telomere length: possible predictor of cancer.

Abstract

A pattern of accelerated telomere shortening followed by stabilisation could predict the development of cancer 3–4 years before an actual diagnosis, new research suggests. Telomere shortening—a putative marker of biological age—has long been associated with having a role in cancer development, but previous studies have produced inconsistent results and been… (More)
