Biofabrication of 3D model to study bone marrow metastasis

October 2015
The George Washington University, Washington, USA
The study presents the modelling of bone marrow metastatic invasion by breast cancer cells with a 3D-printed hydrogel matrix that mimics bone marrow microenvironment. The co-culture of human bone-marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells and human breast cancer cells in this matrix is able to recapitulate morphological and migratory properties of breast cancer bone invasion. This shows that this model can be useful for other researcher to model metastasis.
