Metastatic disease is the leading cause of death in cancer patients. Here, we describe a novel gene therapeutic strategy for prevention of metastatic spread by providing a suitable defense mechanism for the target organ. The production of metalloproteinase (MMP) enzymes by cancer cells is critical for local invasion and for infiltration of metastatic cells(More)
Host cell reactions are a crucial determinant for tumor invasion. We analyzed on a genomewide scale gene expression differences between microdissected tissues taken from unaffected liver tissue of a human colorectal tumor (LS174) growing in the livers of nude mice and tissue from the host part of the invasive front. Due to the low degree of interspecies(More)
