Cancer-associated fibroblasts are derived from bone marrow cellscalled mesenchymal stromal cells, Tel Aviv University researchers say Tel Aviv — Tel Aviv University researchers have discovered that breast cancer tumors boost their growth by recruiting stromal cells that originate in bone marrow. While the recruitment of bone marrow-derived fibroblasts lowers the odds of surviving breast cancer,… Read More »
