Researchers reduce breast cancer metastasis in animal models by modifying tumor electrical properties

January 11, 2022


In normal cells, electrical voltage patterns provide a blueprint for orderly growth. But with cancer, the opposite happens. Marked by a breakdown in the normal electrical patterns generated by the cells, they lose their specialized functions, start expanding into a tumor and spreading into and disrupting the function of other tissues — metastasis. As of yet, there are no clinically available treatments that specifically target the process of metastasis, which remains the leading cause of death in cancer patients.
