This last section presents two areas in which oxidative damage and cell senescence are clearly interrelated processes. The ¢rst of these is the observation (initially by Thomas von Zglinicki but con¢rmed since in several other laboratories) that by placing cells under mild oxidative stress (mild stress being de¢ned as a stress that still allows some cell proliferation to take place) it is possible to increase the rate at which telomere shortening occurs [113]. Such mild stresses include treatment or hydrogen peroxide or placing the cells under chronic hyperoxia.
