Characterising the role of circulating immune cells in brain metastasis

Abstract:

Brain metastasis is a frequent occurrence in cancer patients and carries a high mortality rate. The incidence of brain metastasis is on the rise, highlighting the need for improved therapeutic intervention. Immune cells have been shown to promote disseminated tumour cells to colonise the lung and liver.
