Metastasis Educational Teleconference


Approximately 90 percent of all cancer deaths are due to metastasis, which occurs when cancer cells shed from the primary tumor and develop secondary, sometimes microscopic, tumors in the body's distant organs. The American Association for Cancer Research is at the forefront of efforts to control metastasis and hosted a scientific press conference on this topic for media professionals on Oct. 8, 2009, at the Frontiers in Basic Cancer Research Meeting.
