Scientists uncover how spreading cancer adapts to its environment

Spreading tumor cells are able to adapt their metabolism to the specific organs they are invading. Researchers examined lung cancer metastases that originated from breast tumors, discovering that the two tumors have different ways of converting nutrients into biomass building blocks. Thanks to these findings, scientists may be able to develop new therapies that target the metabolism of cancer cells, thereby halting a tumor’s growth.
