Biological pathways found that drive genomic changes and bone metastasis in ewing sarcoma, a rare childhood cancer

In studies using mice grafted with human Ewing sarcoma tissue, researchers have identified a biological pathway that is activated when tissue is starved of oxygen due to rapid growth of a tumor, thereby allowing cancer cells to make genetic changes so they can metastasize to the bone and thrive even when exposed to chemotherapy.
