Abstract

Epidemiologic analyses of current registries indicate that the majority of patients in the United States with cancer are 65 years old or older. Basic research in both gerontology and oncology has led to an understanding that these processes (normal aging and the development of cancer) have much in common. In this review we attempt to frame specific aspects of cancer biology in the context of normal aging.
