    This article focuses on a new study which shows that the AKT/ PKB enzyme, a well-known compound used to promote tumor cells' survival, also helps in blocking cancer cell motility and invasion. The study was conducted by a scientific team led by Alex Toker from the department of pathology at Beth...

    Endothelial cells line the inside of blood and lymphatic vessels, and cancer cells must cross this barrier, first to gain access to the circulation, and, second, to exit and metastasize. How this occurs is incompletely understood. We now demonstrate that human cancer cells are able to fuse with...
