La agencia SINC ha publicado la entrevista que le hizo a Joan Massagué, presidente del Comité Científico del IRB Barcelona y director del Instituto Sloan Kettering de Nueva York, en la que comenta acerca de la metástasis: “La mayoría son aniquiladas por el sistema inmunitario, pero otras burlan a las defensas, logran anidar y con el tiempo pueden crecer. Eso es la metástasis: es una excepción, algo que no tenía que pasar. La metástasis es como un delincuente. Que en una sociedad haya delincuencia no significa que toda la gente lo sea”.
