Definição de cancro

Motivado por uma conversa de há uns 200 e-mails atrás, decidi colocar aqui uma frase introdutória com referências a artigos de revisão fenomenais da Cell, para quem quiser ler.

“Cancer has traditionally been viewed as a set of diseases that
are driven by the accumulation of genetic mutations that have
been considered the major causes of neoplasia (Hanahan and
Weinberg, 2011). However, this paradigm has now been
expanded to incorporate the disruption of epigenetic regulatory
mechanisms that are prevalent in cancer (Baylin and Jones,
2011; Sandoval and Esteller, 2012).”

A frase foi retirada daqui.
