Genomic stability and tumorigenesis.
Cancer research needs to explain the observed incidence of cancer. Many factors determine this process, including: the number of susceptible cells in the tissue of origin; the number of normal cell divisions through which susceptible cells pass in normal development and turnover; the number of cell divisions during tumorigenesis; the selective advantage which tumour cells have acquired; the ease of detection of a cancer; the number of mutations which are required for malignancy; the possible ...Expand abstract
