Unraveling Brain TumorsMolecular Biologists Devise Strategy To Starve Brain Tumors

Daily Science September 1, 2007 — Brain tumor researchers have found that brain tumors arise from cancer stem cells living within tiny protective areas formed by blood vessels in the brain. Killing those cells is a promising strategy to eliminate tumors and prevents them from re-growing. The researchers have found that drugs that block new blood vessel formation can destroy the protected areas and stop cancer from developing.

Early-stage breast cancer may contain motile cells

Researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies suggest that although tumour cells during the early-stage of breast cancer do not appear to be invasive, they may already contain motile cells that can wander off via milk duct and start a new tumour somewhere else in the same breast. This discovery is important because the cancer cells may become migratory earlier than expected, and this will change the treatment approach.
