Study identifies molecules that could help to prevent the development of brain tumors

Researchers from the University of Portsmouth’s Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence have identified molecules which are responsible for metastatic lung cancer cells binding to blood vessels in the brain. In order for a cancer cell to enter the brain, it must first bind to the cells which line the structure separating the blood from […]
