Abstract We sought to understand the mechanisms of cancer dissemination and to improve treatments for late-stage cancer patients. Laser tissue microdissection of 10 to 25 x 106 µm2 epithelium from sections of freshly-frozen colorectal cancers (no=6), colorectal cancer liver metastases (no=12) and normal colo .. [more]
