Cancer Cells: Metastasis Mechanism


It has been suggested that treatments targeting the biology of the circulatory system might be useful to prevent cancer metastasis.

Using your knowledge of cancer biology, how might this be done?

Select the BEST answer.


Develop drugs that can enter and attack cancer cells that have metastasized through the blood vessels.


Develop drugs that prevent cancers from co-opting the production of blood vessels.


Develop drugs that increase blood flow to benign tumors to enhance immune system action against these cells.
