Cancers Webinar | Bone Metastasis in Breast Cancer, Held on 28 June 2023

On 28 June 2023, MDPI and the journal Cancers (ISSN: 2072-6694) organized a webinar Bone Metastasis in Breast Cancer. The aim of the webinar was to highlight some of the exciting, novel work that is currently being carried out by bone metastasis experts to address pertinent gaps in our knowledge.

It should be noted that 70–80% of patients with late-stage breast cancer will develop bone metastasis and this condition is currently incurable. Gaining a better understanding of how and why breast cancers preferentially spread to bone will help develop more effective treatments. In this webinar, we discuss new insights into factors that promote tumor cell colonization of and growth in the bone environment, including regulation of bone homing by miRNAs, the effects of vasculature and pro-inflammatory cytokines on metastatic outgrowth and immune cell regulation of tumor growth in the bone microenvironment.

Please note that this webinar is associated with a Special Issue in Cancers entitled “Bone Metastasis in Breast Cancer”.
