In any discussion of the factors which may influence senescence, consideration must be given to clinical observations and research and to animal experimentation. Unfortunately there has been relatively little investigation of the problems of involution. Indeed, until recently the subject has attracted little attention. Funds for any such prolonged studies have always been difficult to obtain. As the factors that influence senescence in the experimental animal may not have the same effect on the involuntary processes of man, it will be necessary to use both animal experimentation and clinical research in such studies.
