Cell stress response sheds light on treating inflammation-related cancer, aging

Stress — defined broadly — can have a profoundly deleterious effect on the human body. Even individual cells have their own way of dealing with environmental strains such as ultraviolet radiation from the sun or germs. One response to stress — called senescence — can trigger cells to stop dividing in cases of cancer and aging. This may hold promise for treating inflammation-related disorders.
