Sample text

Yet, even with the estimated lifetime cancer risk (for humans and for dogs) of approximately 1 in 3, it is incorrect to surmise that most cancers (>90%) are due solely to environmental causes. Heritable influences affect susceptibility, but they are difficult to identify in heterogeneous outbred backgrounds such as those that occur in most human families or mixed breed dogs. 8-10 Outside of these populations, the existence of heritable factors that are modulated by environmental influence will be labor intensive to define.

Growth factor signaling was implicated in the 1970s by the ­discovery of viral oncogenes that caused continuous cell cycling. The oncogene theory of cancer was further defined by the 1989 Nobel Prize winners in Medicine, Bishop and Varmus, to state that there exists within all cells normal genes that code for certain products ­essential to the division and differentiation of cells. These genetic elements are called proto-­oncogenes in the normal state and oncogenes when abnormal. Oncogenes can produce cancer when they are mutated to produce abnormal protein products, or expressed in excess or in a continuous manner.

This model is consistent with many aspects of the natural behavior of tumors, and to some extent, it can predict risk and outcome. However, if we assume that all cells possess an equal capacity for self-renewal, and that proliferation is a stochastic (“random”) process driven entirely by environmental selection of favorable mutations, this model would necessarily predict that cancer is an inevitable outcome for multicellular organisms, and few—if any—long-lived animals would reach reproductive age.
