Blood vessel ‘doorway’ lets breast cancer cells spread through blood stream

Using real-time, high-resolution imaging, scientists have identified how a ‘doorway’ in the blood vessel wall allows cancer cells to spread from breast tumors to other parts of the body. The findings support emerging tests that better predict if breast cancer will spread, which could spare women from unnecessary treatments and lead to new anti-cancer therapies.
