Cancer - An Insurgency of Clones

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

Oncological therapy resembles a military force that eliminates the central power of a country (dominant clone of a cancer) to create a vacuum where insurgents (subclones) thrive and instigate rebellion (relapse). We suggest that military counterinsurgency doctrine can inspire a discussion of cancer that uniquely embraces both cancer cell evolution and tumour microenvironment.
