Microorganisms like bacteria and fungi can evade treatment by acquiring mutations in the genes targeted by antibiotics or antifungal drugs. These permanent mutations were once thought to be the only way for drug-resistant strains to evolve.
Metastasis is the strategy adopted by tumour cells to transform into an aggressive form of cancer. Managing to block the metastasis or, even better, prevent their formation would be a giant step in the fight against cancer.
