Studying Tumors With Mathematical Tools

The results obtained suggest that vitronectin can change the rigidity of the location of the tumorous cells. The changes caused by specific organisation of vitronectin can form 'pathways' that could help the tumor to migrate, with the grave problems that this would cause. For this reason, this 'basic science' study opens a possible new way of combatting this cancer which could be based in modifying the organisation of the vitronectin, so making tumors less aggressive.
