Studies Describe Stromal Cell Role in Aggressive Colorectal Cancer Signature | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The gene expression patterns in tumor-adjacent stromal cells appear to be particularly telling when trying to predict outcomes for patients with some colorectal cancer subtypes, new research suggests.

Studies by independent research teams reporting in Nature Genetics today delved into the stromal-like expression signatures detected in a subset of CRC tumors known for enhanced treatment resistance and diminished disease-free survival times.
