Most cancer patients succumb because the cancer metastasizes, and current chemotherapies are not designed to kill metastasizing cancer cells

Prolonged autophagy is lethal to cancer cells
, but a little autophagy can help dormant cancer cells
survive, possibly by avoiding starvation," indicates senior author Robert Bast, vice president for translational research.
These medicines deprive the cancer cells
of various things they need, such as blood supply or hormones, or unbalance them to the point they kill themselves.
The resistant cancer cells

A cancer marker allows one to distinguish cancer cells
from non-cancerous cells.
What factors trigger cancer cells

It's not just older men who have prostate cancer cells
Conventional chemotherapy seeks to kill cancer cells
by creating further damage to DNA sufficient to prevent cell replication.
Lead author Fernando LopezDiaz, Salk staff scientist, said the team aimed to uncover the diversification "switch" by which cancer cells
replicated but vary slightly from one another and that turning off this cellular process would strip cancer's ability to survive drug treatment, Science Daily reported.
Shirly Sieh, a PhD student at IHBI, is studying the way cancer cells
escape from the prostate through the bloodstream to form tumour colonies, most often in the spine and long bones.
One possibility is that heating improves a tumor's blood flow, delivering more chemotherapy drugs to cancer cells
However, prostate cancer cells
often lose the need for androgen as a survival, growth, or differentiation factor and become androgen independent (Westin and Bergh 1998).
