Metastasis

Nanoparticle Therapy Targets Lymph Node Metastases

Metastasis, in which cancer cells break free from the primary tumor and form tumors at other sites, worsens the prognosis for many cancer patients. The lymph nodes -- glands of the immune system located throughout the body -- are typically the...

New Alternate Cell Growth Pathway Could Lead To Better Treatments For Metastatic Cancers

A new study has found that the gene, mEAK-7, which they discovered last year, may play a key role in cancer metastasis. By comparing mEAK-7 expression levels in normal and cancer cells, they found that the gene was highly expressed in the cancer...
