Metastasis is the spread of cancer from one part of the body to another. A tumor formed by cells that have spread is called a “metastatic tumor” or a “metastasis.” The metastatic tumor contains cells that are like those in the original (primary) tumor. The plural form of metastasis is metastases
The MacMillan Center for the Study of the Non-Coding Cancer Genome (MCSNCG) was officially launched by the New York Genome Center (NYGC) on January 18th, 2023.
The alternative pathway for liver metastasis has been revealed by a team of researchers.
According to a recent study conducted by scientists at Emory University in Atlanta, the administration of broad-spectrum antibiotics in mice with malignant melanoma, an aggressive type of skin cancer, expedited their metastatic bone growth.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine claim to have discovered significant molecular variations between cancer cells that adhere to an initial tumor and those that spread out to develop distant tumors while researching the fatal form of breast cancer known as triple negative.
Aging and age-related diseases present a complex challenge to biomedical researchers.
The energy centers of cells and mitochondria have their own genetic material and RNA molecules.
Research reported that the DMDRMR/miR-378a-5p/ DAB2IP axis enhances angiogenesis and sunitinib resistance, suggesting that it could be used for patients with ccRCC.
Prostate cancer that has spread to other regions of the body is commonly treated with hormone treatment, but many individuals develop resistance to it, making their disease more aggressive and potentially fatal.
A mutated gene found in more than 20% to 30% of breast cancer recurrences may help tumors become more aggressive and promote metastasis, according to a pair of new studies that uncover mechanisms behind these processes and point to new therapy targets.
After tumors are surgically removed, a novel biodegradable gel increases the immune system’s capacity to keep cancer away.
Bacteria promote cancer metastasis by bolstering the strength of host cells against mechanical stress in the bloodstream, promoting cell survival during tumor progression, researchers report April 7th in the journal Cell.
This scientific breakthrough, which was published in the science journal Theranostics, might pave the way for cancer patients to prevent developing metastases.
Scientists from the University of Notre Dame have found a new way for tumor cells to transmit genetic material to other cells in their microenvironment, allowing cancer to spread.
There are many proteins involved in the spread of cancer. However, some of them are notably difficult to observe in patient tissue samples.
A recent study shows that compressing cancer cells through tight spaces makes them more violent and helps them avoid cell death.
Cedars-Sinai scientists discovered that attacking a protein present in prostate cancer cells could stop the disease from further spreading to various other parts of the body.
It is estimated that about a quarter of cancer patients are at risk of brain metastases, a rate that is increasing especially among those who suffer relapses after having undergone different cancer treatments.
Researchers from the University of California San Francisco discovered two functional archetypes of metastatic cells spanning seven different types of brain cancers.
Researchers from UConn Heath and Yale University have made new advances connecting the evolution of pregnancy and cancer metastasis.
The detection and quantification of cancer-associated molecular biomarkers in body fluids, or liquid biopsies, prove minimally invasive in early cancer diagnostics.
