  1. 25.7.2019

    Suppressing the capacity of tumours to destroy the healthy tissue that surrounds them is essential for fighting cancer-induced morbidity and mortality. Now, a new study by the Cell Fitness lab in human-derived tumours reveals a potential way of doing just that. The study reveals a competition mechanism used by human cancer cells for killing their neighbours and demonstrates that combining substances that block this mechanism with chemotherapy results in more effective tumour elimination. These findings may lead to the development of novel cancer therapies.
