Prostate Cancer Cells Become "Shapeshifters" to Spread to Distant Organs
Prostate cancer cells that lack the AIM1 protein have the almost unnatural ability to change their shape, squeeze into other organs and take root in other parts of the body, according to new research by Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center scientists. In this video, such AIM-1-lacking prostate cancer cells are able to migrate quickly to fill the gap in the culture dish.
Philanthropic support is critical to our continued success in the diagnosis and care of patients and the research that drives new treatments, new therapies and new surgical techniques.
