Doll: I don't see any conflict between them because we all recognize that both nature and nurture playa part in nearly every disease. Environment could affect only a cell that is susceptible to it, and nature can produce a reaction only in Demographic and Epidemiologic Trends Today 33 response to something in the environment. The two approaches will meet when physiologists and pathologists are able to describe the mechanism by which disease is produced. Gilliland: I'm struck by the curve on mortality that you showed.

A breakthrough in prevention and treatment will very likely come from a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms of the disease. Molecular Mechanisms of the Pathogenesis of Atherosclerosis Where do we stand after 40 years of intensive biomedical research in terms of pathogenetic mechanisms that underlie CHD? Arteriosclerosis is a disease that involves a chronic interaction of at least four cell types: endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, the monocyte/macrophage system, and the activated T-Iymphocyte [12].

Chemotherapy has made enormous strides in recent years. Childhood leukaemia, Hodgkin's disease, and cancers of the testes, which used to ]:)e almost invariably fatal, are now largely curable.
