The Tumor Microenvironment 

Scientists have discovered that the microenvironment–the cells that surround a tumor–plays a role in both how tumors grow and how they respond to treatment. Researchers also think that certain treatments, like immune checkpoint inhibitors, work in part because of the effect they have on the tumor’s microenvironment.

Below you will find articles and video presentations that discuss the microenvironment, different avenues of tumor microenvironment research scientists are pursuing, and clinical trials listed on BreastCancerTrials.org studying a treatment’s affect on a tumor’s microenvironment.
