A niche for metastases

(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) Pancreatic cancer is an exceptionally aggressive type of cancer. Frequently, metastases already start to grow in other organs, particularly often in the liver, before the original tumor was even detected. Scientists from the Technical University of Munich have now discovered a molecular mechanism, which is responsible for the prominent susceptibility of the liver to metastases at such an early stage.
