  • Bruce A. Warren
Part of the Developments in Oncology book series (DION, volume 22)


Metastatic deposits are, of course, a major problem in the treatment of the patient with malignant disease. The known biological nature, frequency and growth vary enormously depending upon the specific type of tumor under consideration. As the biology of specific tumors is studied in detail there probably will be found to be major differences among tumors in factors operative in the metastatic cascade.
