Research from McMaster University has identified new regulators of brain metastases in patients with lung cancer. These regulators are the genes called SPOCK1 and TWIST2. The discovery was made by researchers at the Stem Cell and Cancer Research Institute at McMaster University. The study used samples from lung cancer patients with brain metastases. The samples were incubated to enrich for BMICs, then injected into the lungs, hearts and brains of mice. The subsequent development of brain metastases was studied by researchers.
