Neurons occur even within the tumor microenvironment – and contribute to the development of cancer. These nerve cells originate from progenitors deriving from the brain and transported via the bloodstream. An astonishing discovery that opens up a whole new field of research relating to both the role of the nervous system in cancer development and the interactions between the vascular-, immune- and nervous systems in tumorigenesis.
