Example text

Tumor cell-secreted chemokines attract bone marrow, myeloid-derived leukocytes that eventually contribute to angiogenesis, forming vessels that are the primary route of tumor cell metastasis. The immune system has a dual role in tumor growth. Rudolf Virchow was the first scientist to make the observation that infiltrating leukocytes were abundant in cancer tissues. During the early stages of tumor growth, immune cells are capable of recognizing stressed tumor cells and promote an effective immune response leading to tumor cell death.
