Ovarian tumors metastasize in blood.

[No authors listed]

Abstract

Ovarian tumors often metastasize before diagnosis, and a new study shows that the cancer cells travel in the blood. The work reveals that metastasizing ovarian tumor cells produce excess amounts of the receptor ErbB3, suggesting that drugs to block ErbB3 or its partners might prevent metastasis.
