New Mathematical Model of Cancer Formation Reveal that Genetic Signs of the Disease Can Start Decades Before DiagnosisPosted by Clinton | Research
A new mathematical model of tumorigenesis—the formation of cancer—developed by scientists at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, Whiting School of Engineering, and Bloomberg School of Public Health, suggests that the accumulation of random genetic mutations that launch a cell into malignancy later in life may get their start as early as the teen years.
