"El Periódico" and other media, report on a recent study that reveals the biological changes in breast cancer between the primary tumour and metastasis. 

Published in the journal Cancer Research, this work describes for the first time that the longer the time between the diagnosis of the primary tumour and the onset of metastasis is, the more aggressive the cancer becomes.

The first author of the study is Juan Miguel Cejalvo, PhD student of the PhD4MD programme led by Aleix Prat at IDIBAPS and ICREA researcher Roger Gomis at IRB Barcelona.
