Building on the knowledge that tumor cells spread by entering the blood stream and latching onto the inner walls of blood vessels, researchers from the Institute of Cancer Research, London, and the University of Manchester discovered that a receptor protein called EPHA2 is responsible for whether or not tumor cells break out of vessels.
