New Delhi, May 06 (ANI): According to a new study, Cancer cells thrive in stiff tissue. According to the research conducted by the University of Notre Dame, stiffer breast tissue creates an environment more prone to cancer by enabling the disease to interfere with the surrounding healthy cells. While studying tumor growth metastasis, scientists fabricated a human tissue model in order to examine how cancer cells interact with connective tissue in the breast. The model allowed the team to control the stiffness of the tissue, mimicking both healthy and cancerous breast tissue structures. They found the manipulation of fat cells to be stiffness-dependent.
