The Norwegian Cancer Society has recently presented a research project on their home page where researchers from Oslo and Bergen have performed genetic analyses on cancer cells that have spread from the gut to the liver. The results show that the degree of genetic heterogenenity between the metastases to the liver may reveal important prognostic information.. The study led by Ragnhild A. Lothe from the Department of Moleceular Oncology at OUS and Per Eystein L√łnning from Haukeland University Hospital.
