cancer cells develop a degree of autonomy from these signals, resulting in uncontrolled growth and proliferation. In fact, almost 90% of cancer-related deaths are due to tumour spreading a process called metastasis. The foundation of modern cancer biology rests on a simple principle – virtually all mammalian cells share similar molecular networks that control cell proliferation, differentiation and cell death.
