Does anyone know of any research being done to see if there is a link
between thymic decline and the incidence of tumors/cancer. I am doing a
research project concetrating on whether the increase in cancer rate
among the 'elderly' is due to thymic decline/degeneation, indicating that
lymphocytes (particularly T) playa regulatory role in controlling
cancer.  Any leads to past/continuing research or data would be greatly
appreciated.
