Researchers have reviewed scientific articles on proteins and genes that help cancer cells enter the brain. An understanding of the processes that facilitate the formation of metastases in the brain will allow scientists to create new methods for cancer diagnosis and treatment. Brain tissues are very sensitive to changes and to the penetration of microorganisms and immune cells, but they need a large amount of nutrients and oxygen.
