Signals found that recruit host animals’ cells, enabling breast cancer metastasis

ScienceDaily, by Source: Johns Hopkins Medicine ~ May 22, 2014 Working with mice, Johns Hopkins researchers report they have identified chemical signals that certain breast cancers use to recruit two types of normal cells needed for the cancers' spread. A description of the findings appears in the online early May edition of the Proceedings of

New Breast Cancer Stem Cell Findings Explain How Cancer Spreads

ScienceDaily, by Staff Jan. 14, 2014 — Breast cancer stem cells exist in two different states and each state plays a role in how cancer spreads, according to an international collaboration of researchers. Their finding sheds new light on the process that makes cancer a deadly disease. "The lethal part of cancer is its metastasis
