Abstract

Research on the association of the ribonucleoprotein enzymes telomerase, with human cancer has expanded rapidly in recent years. Essentially all major types of cancer have been screened and the presence of telomerase activity has been detected in the vast majority of cases. In this article we provide a summary, in table form of the current data.
