Cancer Therapy And Ecology

by Anna Liona (2017-07-15)

We propose that there is an opportunity to devise new cancer therapies based on the recognition that tumors have properties of ecological systems. Traditionally localized treatment has targeted the cancer cells directly by removing them surgery  Essay Writing Company    killing them chemotherapy and radiation. These modes of therapy have not always been effective because many tumors recur after these therapies, either because not all of the cells are killed (local recurrence because the cancer cells had already escaped the primary tumor environment distant recurrence. There has been an increasing recognition that the tumor microenvironment contains host noncancer cells in addition to cancer cells, interacting in a dynamic fashion over time. The cancer cells compete and/or cooperate with nontumor cells, and the cancer cells may compete and/or cooperate with each other.
