Özet

Purpose: In various studies low telomerase activity have been shown to have a protective role in some types of cancer. Patients with neurofibromatosis type-1 (NF1) are at risk of developing certain types of cancer. Prognosis is generally better in patients with NF1 than those without NF1. In the present study, we aimed to measure telomerase activity in patients with NF1 and in controls.
