Dr Sergei Grivennikov - Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, USA

Dr Sergei Grivennikov speaks with ecancertv at AACR 2016 on the mechanisms by which a tumour can modulate its environment to promote inflammation for its own benefit.

Normally an immune response to infection, tumour upregulation of the inflamed environment attracts cell repair and growth factors that would otherwise heal a wound, contributing to further cancer growth.

Dr Grivennikov reviews different therapeutic prospects in treating cancer by destabilising the microenvironment, from aspirin to targeted molecules.
