Metastatic cancer exerts systemic effects on the entire body. Its influence on the immune system and distant organs leads to pre-metastatic niche formation and metastasis, alongside vascular and metabolic changes, liver and lung failure, loss of bone density, muscle wasting and cachexia, as well as neuropathies. These also represent the multiple complications and co-morbidities observed in patients with distant metastatic disease.
The myriad effects induced by metastasis present several new therapeutic targets, and successful blockade of cancer’s systemic influence may be two-fold: it could interfere with disease progression, and it could enhance patient quality of life and longevity. This symposium aims to deepen our understanding of the complex results of systemic metastatic disease, and inspire the development of effective therapeutic strategies to prevent and treat the systemic outcomes of cancer metastasis.
