Platelets, selectins, and the control of tumor metastasis
The significant role of platelets and P-selectin in assisting tumor cell metastasis to the lungs has been frequently reported and reviewed. However, evidence recently has come to light on other pro-metastatic mechanisms of platelets beyond that of tumor cell protection from immune cell attack and aiding extravasation, such as promoting epithelial to mesenchymal transition in tumor cells and conveying signals from the primary tumor to distant tissues that optimize conditions for metastasis....[Show more]
