A Mechanism of Cancer Metastasis Larry H. Bernstein, MD, FCAP, Curator LPBI   A Protein that Spreads Cancer Nils Halberg at the University of Bergen has identified a protein that makes it possible for cancer cells to spread http://www.technologynetworks.com/Proteomics/news.aspx?ID=190563 The cells inside a tumour differ a lot. While some remains “good” and do not cause […]

How cancer metastasis occurs Larry H. Bernstein, MD, FCAP, Curator LPBI   How Cancer Cells Slide along Narrow Path to Metastasis http://www.genengnews.com/gen-news-highlights/how-cancer-cells-slide-along-narrow-path-to-metastasis/81252674/ In tumors, abnormal protein-fiber environments and genetic perturbations conspire to give rise to metastatic behavior. In this looking-glass world, cells that bump into each other do not halt and reverse direction, as they […]

Author Tilda Barliya PhD Hepatic metastatic disease from colorectal cancer (CRC) is a significant clinical problem. The liver is the dominant metastatic site for patients with CRC, and although two-thirds of affected patients have extrahepatic spread, some have disease that is isolated to the liver. For patients with isolated liver metastases, regional treatment approaches may […]
