Also, to agree with Morgan - and I think anyone that has worked in cell cycle or cancer research or developmental biology or aging research will probably agree with the following. While there probably are 'cures' for certain cancers -many would simply have to be patient specific and require tailored gene therapies and or involve cell specific targeting etc that is mostly still tantalisingly out of reach (just) - if we can target recurrent cancers(and very probably cancers of various different types too in very elderly patients)then greatly increased longevity probably will be a side effect
