Hvis kræft ikke spredte sig, var det ikke så farligt

Thomas R. Cox, Nov 2015

Kræfts evne til at sprede sig er en af de største udfordringer i bekæmpelsen af sygdommen. Har kræften spredt sig, bliver den nemlig meget sværere at få has på. Brystkræft, som årligt rammer næsten 4.900 danske kvinder, er blandt de kræftformer, som ofte spreder sig.

Nanna Bisbjerg fra Rask magasinet forsøger at forstå spredningen af kræft og har talt med Janine Erler og hendes team på Biotech Research and Innovation Centre (BRIC) på Københavns Universitet (KU) om fremtiden og hendes seneste forskning på området.

RASKMagasinet-brystkræft

27% af alle kræfttilfælde blandt kvinder er brystkræft, hvilket svarer til at 13 kvinder hver dag får diagnosen. Hvis brystkræft spreder sig, sker det typisk til lunger, lever og knogler. Screening betyder heldigvis, at de fleste tilfælde opdages tidligt. (27% of all cancers among women are breast cancer, this means that 13 women are diagnosed every day. If breast cancer spreads, it typically goes to the lungs, liver and bone. With screening, fortunately, most cases are detected early)

Press Release: A link between tissue fibrosis and cancer metastasis

Thomas R. Cox, Jan 2013

Scientists uncover a crucial link between tissue fibrosis and breast cancer metastasis

The spread of cancer around the body (metastasis) is the biggest cause of cancer related death in the world. The multiple processes which allow cancer cells to spread are highly complex and dynamic. Although it has long been known that tissue fibrosis and scarring can enhance primary tumour progression the underlying molecular mechanisms are still unclear.
