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 laboratory of Youyang Zhao developed a novel nanoparticle to deliver genome editing technology, such as CRISPR/Cas9, to endothelial cells, which line blood vessel walls.
An olfactory receptor gene that aids in the sense of smell may also play a role in the metastasis of breast cancer to the brain, bones and lung, researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital have found.
Driving up the immune response at the site of a cancer tumor with nanotechnology may help enhance immunotherapy treatments in advanced stages of the disease, new research in mice suggests.
Mount Sinai researchers have solved a major mystery in cancer research: How cancer cells remain dormant for years after they leave a tumor and travel to other parts of the body, before awakening to create metastatic cancer.
According to recent research by UCL scientists, cells in the developing embryo sense the stiffness of other cells surrounding them, a vital factor that makes them move together to form the skull and face.
Immunotherapies are exhibiting better clinical benefit in the treatment of numerous cancers, particularly when used along with chemotherapy.
A type of cell transformation known as EMT enables cancer cells to break away from the tumor and form metastases elsewhere.
A novel therapeutic approach inhibits the growth of metastatic tumors in mice by coercing cancer cells into a dormant state—where they cannot proliferate.
Scientists for the first time developed a nano computing agent that regulates the function of a specific protein involved in cell movement and cancer metastasis.
Even within a single patient with cancer, there is a vast diversity of individual tumor cells, which display distinct behaviors related to growth, metastasis, and responses to chemotherapy.
A research collaboration has found that cancer invasion and migration in mice can be inhibited by controlling the stiffness of the cell membrane.
Recent research from the Oregon State University shows how malignant cells change their shape and migration techniques to attack various tissues.
Recent research published in eLife revealed that cells can control their capability to migrate throughout the body with the help of a protein named fascin.
A new meta-analysis finds that a genetic biomarker test accurately predicts how men with high-risk prostate cancer will respond to treatment with radiation and hormone therapy.
With advances in deep learning, machines are now able to "predict" a variety of aspects about life, including the way people interact on online platforms or the way they behave in physical environments.
Imagine you're about to go on a cross-country trip, stopping at spots along the way to admire local attractions.
Research reveals how stem cells slow down their rolling inside the circulatory system by developing long tethers that bind to the inner surfaces of blood vessels.
In three studies from the Cancer Cell Map Initiative, researchers uncovered previously unknown interactions between proteins that drive cancer and combined this new data to generate a map of protein pathways informing cancer outcomes.
Researchers generated a 3D pancreatic cancer tumor model in the lab, merging a bioengineered matrix and patient-derived cells.
Scientists from the Medical University of South Carolina earlier displayed how hnRNP E1 attaches to metastatic-linked RNAs to prevent their translation.
