Fibroblasts form a hospitable metastatic niche in the liver

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

The liver is the most common metastatic route of pancreatic cancer. Early recruitment of granulin-secreting inflammatory monocytes to the liver is now shown to reprogram hepatic stellate cells into myofibroblasts that modulate the liver microenvironment to support the growth of metastasizing tumour cells.
