Scientists have uncovered a biological mechanism through which vitamin D can change the course of melanoma. They found that vitamin D influences a signaling pathway inside melanoma cells that helps them to thrive. Share on PinterestNew research finds a novel mechanism that could explain melanoma. The researchers suggest that reducing the activity of the pathway

In a recent study, researchers investigate the cause of shifts in cancer cell metabolism. Cancer is a disease that is characterised by cells that proliferate uncontrollably. To maintain their high rate of cell division, cancer cells need a lot of energy and building materials. In solid tumours, cancer cells often grown in nutrient and oxygen-poor
