Novel Research Shows Older Breast Cancer Survivors Experience Accelerated Aging, Worse Functional Outcomes
In a new multicenter study, researchers from Georgetown University’s Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), UCLA and several other leading cancer centers from across the nation examined whether cancer and its treatments accelerate aging. Using novel epigenetic measures to assess biological aging, investigators found that older breast cancer survivors — particularly those exposed to chemotherapy — showed greater epigenetic aging than their same-aged peers without cancer, which may relate to worse outcomes.
