Severe inflammation in tissues is often associated with the occurrence of cancer and the mechanism linking both these conditions is not clearly understood. Furthermore, inflamed and cancerous tissues contain a heterogenous mix of damaged and protective cells.
This makes it very difficult to isolate the primary damaged cells and study them further.
Researchers at Kanazawa University have recently developed a technique to make this possible.
Findings are published in the journal Gastroenterology.
