The high frequency and mortality associated with breast cancer metastasis to bone has motivated efforts to elucidate tumor-stroma interactions in the bone microenvironment contributing to invasion and proliferation of metastatic cells. The development of engineered tissues has prompted the integration of engineered bone scaffolds into animal models as potential targets for metastatic spread. Silk scaffolds were coupled with bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2), seeded with bone marrow stromal… CONTINUE READING
