UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Physiological old age in some cases can inhibit the development of malignant tumors. Relevant data published in the journal Aging Cell.
Scientists from the University of Liverpool conducted a study that compared changes that occur in old age and genetic changes with the development of cancer.
Specialists came to the conclusion that the processes occurring in the body of an elderly person neutralize each other to some extent.
In particular, aging of tissues causes not only the appearance of new mutations, but also slows down the division of mutated cells, which greatly complicates the development of oncology.
As the researchers noted, the findings can explain cases of declining cancer incidence in old age.
