Further characterization of what constitutes the most optimal lifestyle habits and research into the specific mechanisms of genetic and nongenetic aspects of aging will contribute not only to the development of specific lifestyle and pharmacologic interventions, they will also likely lead to gene therapy to optimize the likelihood that given individuals will age "successfully." Thus, a conceptual breakthrough that will be expanded and further defined in the foreseeable future is the distinction of successful aging from normal or usual aging.
