News & Notes
In a recent study, biologists using computer modeling may have discovered the mechanism that allows some cancer cells to grow back rapidly after chemotherapy. This information has hoof researchers paying attention.
Sometimes, after cancer cells have died and been cleared away, a tumor will respond by growing faster and more aggressively. Scientists are not sure why this occurs, but recent computer modeling may have given researchers the answer. Although cancer cells are not foreign invaders as are bacteria and fungi, there are similarities in the way they spread so rapidly in open space after some treatments.Read More
