Neutrophils are a key component of the environment in cancer. Usually these cells patrol the body and clear pathogens. In cancer, neutrophils transform and in fact help the cancer to grow. We have identified one of the mechanisms by which neutrophils are able to facilitate cancer growth is through the release of web-like structures called extracellular traps. These traps exert an effect on other components of the local environment in the cancer. We are now targeting extracellular trap release as a novel cancer therapy.
