Study shows how fungi and bacteria can activate genes associated with head and neck cancer

Publicado em 26 maio 2021
An in vitro study conducted by a group of researchers at São Paulo State University (UNESP) in Araraquara, Brazil, shows how fungi and bacteria can activate genes associated with head and neck tumours, as the metabolism of biofilms (communities in which these microorganisms self-organise in a structured and coordinated manner) stimulate tumour cells by favouring the cell signalling pathways required for tumour development and resistance to treatment. The findings include entirely novel [...]
