Abstract

Although the increased incidence of common cancers with age on one hand and immunosenescence on the other are both well documented in animal models and in humans, evidence for a causal link between the two is controversial. It is, therefore, most appropriate to critically consider whether the dysfunctional immune processes occurring with aging may play a contributing role in the increased incidence of cancer with aging. Indeed whether or not immunosenescence plays a significant role could have a determinant impact on devising cancer prevention and/or immunotherapeutic strategies for the presently growing elderly population.
