Cancer research is complex. Finding a trusted, experienced partner is simple.

Unlocking the complexities of cancer is an ongoing challenge. Luckily, countless individuals are determined to discover new and better ways to more effectively prevent, fight or even cure cancer.  

Corning supports this important research with reliable lab products that deliver consistent, repeatable results. Matrigel® matrix, Transwell® permeable supports and spheroid microplates are just a few Corning products being used in cutting edge cancer research studies.

Whether you are interested in tumor formation, 3D cell culture or invasion and migration assays, we have the knowledge and experience to simplify product selection, provide technical support, and set your research up for success - right from the start.

The Progression of Cancer

The Progression of Cancer

Tumorigenesis is a complex process involving cell mutagenesis and the transformation of cells from normal to aberrant proliferative behavior. Tumor cells escape the normal constraints on cell division and then progress through the stages of uncontrolled cell proliferation and tumor formation. All of the cells derived from the parent tumor cells display tumorigenic behavior and contribute to the tumor mass as it grows. Tumor growth and survival is dependent on the process of angiogenesis, which provides the tumor with a vascular network and blood supply that effectively feeds the tumor cells. The resulting tumor may remain within the tissue of origin (referred to as in situ cancer) or spread to other tissues and organs via the process of metastasis (referred to as invasive cancer).

Tumor Formation

Tumor Formation

Overview

The process of tumorigenesis begins when a normal cell undergoes mutational changes that initiate and promote the transformation to a tumor cell. As tumor cells engage in uncontrolled proliferation, the tumorigenic cell population can form a tumor mass at the site or tissue of origin.

Angiogenesis

Angiogenesis

Overview

Angiogenesis is the process that governs the formation of new blood vessels. Tumor growth and survival is dependent on the angiogenesis process, which provides the tumor with a vascular network and blood supply that effectively feeds the tumor cells and their microenvironment.

Intravasation/Metastasis/Extravasation

Intravasation/Metastasis/Extravasation

Overview

Metastasis via Intravasation: During the intravasation process, tumor cells exit the tumor of origin and invade through the basement membrane and vessel walls into nearby lymphatic or blood vessels.

Secondary Tumor Formation via Extravasation: During extravasation, circulating tumor cells exit the lymphatic or blood vessels by invading through vessel walls and basement membrane into a new tissue or organ.
