For tumor cells, their capacity of Local Invasion and Metastasis is the key to whether their behavior is benign or malignant. In Subject 07, you will learn how Local Invasion of tumor cells takes place and the factors that allow tumors to prepare the Pre-Metastatic Niche such as Exosomes.
Besides, this course delves into the survival strategies that tumor cells develop in the context of a metastatic process, and the cells such as Metastasis-Associated Macrophages (MAMs) which collaborate in tumor cell circulation, extravasation and survival in newly colonized tissues. Eventually, you’ll also find case studies for Bone metastasis, Lung metastasis, Brain metastasis and Liver metastasis.
What will you learn?
With this course you
will learn about:
Local Invasion: Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and Tumor cell motility.
Tumor cells circulation: Tumor embolus and its associated cells, such as platelets, metastasis-associated macrophages (MAM) and neutrophils.
The role of Exosomes, and Myeloid and Non-myeloid cells, in tumor cell extravasation and survival in newly colonized tissues, as well as, tumor cell dormancy.
Metastic destination: organ specificity, blood vessels anatomy and chemokines.
Metastasis: Bone Metastasis, Lung Metastasis, Brain Metastasis and Liver Metastasis.
