LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A previously unreported mechanism for the growth and spread of cancer has been reported by Muller Fabbri, MD, first author on the paper that recently appeared in the early edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Although the study is preclinical, it provides a rationale for the development of new cancer treatments.
