Metastatic tumours facilitated by hypoxic tumour micro-environments
ID: 222741
Start date: 2009-02-01, End date: 2014-07-31
Recent research suggests that the hypoxic micro-environment of tumours is one of the major drivers of metastatic spread of cancer. Furthermore, hypoxic tumour micro-environments may result in treatment resistance of cancer cells, therefore causing a double effect of reducing ...
