Immunogenetic Determinants of Metastatic Cells
The progression of metastases is controlled by a series of cellular interactions between host and tumor cells. The generation of blood-bourne metastases is initiated by tumor cells capable of adhering to capillary basement membranes, followed by penetration, apparently via enzymatic degradation, of its proteins (1–3).
