乐动体育开户The National Cancer Institute awarded a Cedars-Sinai team $9.1 million by to study how cancer metastasizes to the liver and finding ways to block it. Consisting of four parts, the study’s main focus will be the interaction between dietary fat and fatty liver disease as well as the mechanisms that allow for the spread, according to a press release.
“The liver is the second-most common site, after lymph nodes, to which cancer spreads. The majority of patients that die of pancreatic, colon or prostate cancer develop liver metastases at the time of death,” Neil Bhowmick, PhD, director of the Cancer Biology Program at Cedars-Sinai said in the release. “While the liver is the primary organ of metastasis from pancreatic and colon cancers, the relatively rare incidence of prostate cancer metastasis to the liver has the worst outcome. The liver – whose primary function is to filter the blood coming from the digestive tract, detoxify chemicals, metabolize drugs and excrete bile – plays a role in other cancers as well.”
