Rethinking Cancer Research
For the week of April 20th, 2014
Cancer survival rates are tied directly to whether or not the cancer spreads—or metastasizes—from its point of origin. The body’s lymph node system is supposed to find and destroy cancerous cells. With some cancer patients, the lymph nodes do their job, but with others, the cancerous cells seize the advantage. On this week’s Access Minnesota, University of Minnesota Researcher Dr. Akhouri Sinha discusses cancer survival rates and the important role that lymph nodes play.
