Targeting hibernating breast cancer cells in the lung could reduce secondary cancers

According to new research from the Crick Healthy lung cells support the survival of breast cancer cells, allowing them to hibernate in the lung before forming secondary tumours. The findings could help the development of new treatments that interfere with this behaviour, reducing the number of secondary cancers.
