Citation Summary
Yingxin Yu, Bart Blokhuis, Yvonne Derks, Sangeeta Kumari, Johan Garssen & Frank Redegeld (2018) Human mast cells promote colon cancer growth via bidirectional crosstalk: studies in 2D and 3D coculture models, OncoImmunology, 7:11, e1504729, DOI: 10.1080/2162402X.2018.1504729

Chronic inflammation drives the development of colorectal cancer (CRC), where tumor-infiltrating immune cells interact with cancer cells in a dynamic crosstalk.

Yu Y, Blokhuis BRJ, Diks MAP, Keshavarzian A, Garssen J and Redegeld FA (2018) Functional Inhibitory Siglec-6 Is Upregulated in Human Colorectal Cancer-Associated Mast Cells. Front. Immunol. 9:2138. doi: 10.3389/fimmu.2018.02138

Mast cells (MC) accumulate in colorectal cancer (CRC) and the relationship between MC density and cancer progression has been well recognized.
