Dr Joao Incio - Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, USA

Dr Incio speaks with ecancertv at EACR 2016 about obesity-associated inflammation that drives cancer.

He considers the influence of age and obesity, with patients weight across all stages of life being linked to risks of cancer,  and goes on to introduce ongoing studies into adipose tissues in breast cancer.

For more from Dr Incio on pathways in pancreatic cancer, you can read about VEGFR here and IL-1ß/AT1 here.
