Researchers reveal new clues about spread of colon cancer

HHMI researchers have discovered a gene that appears to allow colon tumors to spread to other parts of the body, a process called metastasis. The gene codes for an enzyme that may be central to the metastatic process, suggesting the possibility that the enzyme could targeted by drugs to block the spread of colon cancers. Metastasis is the primary cause of death from colon cancer.
