Preventing pancreatic cancer metastasis by keeping cells ‘sheltered in place’

Source: NCI Preventing pancreatic cancer metastasis by keeping cells 'sheltered in place'Scientists at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute have shown that pancreatic cancer metastasis -- when tumor cells gain the deadly ability to migrate to new parts of the body -- can be suppressed by inhibiting a protein

What fuels brain metastasis?

Scientists at The Wistar Institute described a novel mechanism through which astrocytes, the most abundant supporting cells in the brain, also promote cancer cell growth and metastasis in the brain. According to a study published online in the journal Cancer Discovery, astrocytes provide fatty acids that activate the PPAR-gamma
