Hemodynamic Forces Tune the Arrest, Adhesion, and Extravasation of Circulating Tumor Cells

Highlights   Arrest of circulating tumor cells occurs in blood vessels with permissive flow profiles pN-range adhesion forces favor rapid and stable intravascular adhesion Flow-mediated endothelial remodeling drives extravasation of tumor cells Summary Metastatic seeding is driven by cell-intrinsic and environmental cues, yet the contribution of biomechanics is poorly known. We aim to elucidate the […]
