Experts from the University of Michigan have developed special adaptations that prevent the formation of metastases from primary tumors. Cancer cells, once the implant is fixed in it. In the future they can be destroyed.
The size of the device no more than five millimeters in diameter. Now scientists are conducting tests on laboratory animals. The results obtained prove the effectiveness of development. The introduction of these implants significantly reduces the risk of metastasis in cancer.
Metastases can occur several years after removal of primary tumors. Scientists expect to reduce mortality from cancer when introducing new technology into practical medicine.
Such "collectors" of cancer cells is one of the steps to victory over cancer. In addition, scientists are struggling to develop new drugs and means of radiation therapy. Do not leave they thoughts about the vaccine from a cancer, which can be a method of prevention of the disease.
