In 2015, the same data looked at certain gene tendencies that promote telomere shortening and concluded that cancer survival was IMPROVED when shortening was enhanced in the telomeres.

Contradiction? Not so fast.

For #ScienceSunday, we turn to a recent article published online showing that a modified mRNA version of the telomerase protein (TERT) can extend the telomeres in a dose-dependent fashion. This method has the advantage of not being permanent, as with gene therapy.
