Abstract

Tumor-infiltrating immune cells play important roles in metastasis. We have recently revealed the recruitment of a specific myeloid cell subset (CD11b/Gr1mid) to hepatic metastases. Such a recruitment relies on CCL2/CCR2 signaling and acts to sustain metastatic growth. A similar cell subset was identified in patients bearing hepatic metastases of colorectal cancer, highlighting the potential therapeutic relevance of our findings.
