Cancer Cell Biology

Cancer cells have the ability to divide and multiply in an uncontrollable manner. Cancer cells ignore signals that are active in stopping the cell division, apoptosis and cell shedding. In a cancer cell, most of the genes metamorphose into defective ones. Cancerous tumors can spread into, or invade, nearby tissues, causing malignancy. By the progression of these tumors, some cancer cells get fragmented and travel to other parts of the body through plasma or the lymphatic system and form another tumor cell far away from the original tumor, which is called metastasis. Cancer pathogenesis deals with the molecular, biochemical, and cell-based approaches are included in cancer cell biology to understand better. Cancer Genetics deals with the cancer growth due to genetic changes. If the changes are present in germ cells, it can be inherited from parents to off-springs. Tumor Immunology plays an important role in decision of new approaches for cancer therapeutics. Cancer Science Conferences articulate the evolutions in the cancer science field.
