Tumor lymphatic metastasis is one of the most sophisticated medical problems with undetermined etiology and high mortality, demanding prompt solutions. Although various hypotheses have been introduced previously and researches have focused on the tumor cells themselves, none of which can fully elucidate the pathogenesis of lymphatic metastasis. Recent researches have shown the interaction between tumor cells and other cells in the tumor microenvironment. Lymphatic endothelial cell (LEC) is an important one in the tumor microenvironment, closely relating with tumor lymphatic metastasis. Therefore, further study on interaction of LEC and tumor cells may bring a new dawn for the etiology of lymphatic metastasis as well as traditional anti-cancer treatment.

    The tumor is a hostile microenvironment for T lymphocytes. Indeed, irregular blood flow, and endothelial cell (EC) anergy that characterize most solid tumors hamper leukocyte adhesion, extravasation, and infiltration. In addition, hypoxia and reprograming of energy metabolism within cancer cells...

    MicroRNAs are small non-coding RNAs that regulate the expression of other genes in a post-transcriptional manner. MiR-34a can induce apoptosis, cell cycle arrest, and senescence. However, its role in tumor progress remains to be fully elucidated. In the present study, the role of miR-34a in...
