Abstract : Cancer is primarily a disease of the physiological control on cell population proliferation. Tissue proliferation relies on the cell division cycle: one cell becomes two after a sequence of molecular events that are physiologically controlled at each step of the cycle at so-called checkpoints, in particular at transitions between phases of the cycle [105]. Tissue proliferation is the main physiological process occurring in development and later in maintaining the permanence of the organism in adults, at that late stage mainly in fast renewing tissues such as bone marrow, gut and skin.
