Understanding the phenomenon of metastasis: a challenge for future cancer therapies.

This volume brings together leading experts (doctors and researchers) to provide a thorough update on current knowledge on this phenomenon so common in oncology, this model of survival and adaptation that is metastasis.

  • Which mechanisms make possible the spreading of the tumour cells to overrun the entire organism?
  • Why normal cells help the growing of tumour cells?
  • Why it remains so difficult to reproduce this phenomenon in laboratories ? It prevent developing new therapeutic strategies.

It is only the understanding of the mechanisms that will allow research to advance in this area.
