Cell Type Switch Helps Colon Cancer Evade Treatment, Study Suggests

The Rockefeller University Press

The study, which will be published May 16 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, suggests that combination therapies targeting both cell types at once may be more effective at treating colorectal cancer, the third highest cause of cancer-related death in the United States.
