There is growing evidence that tumor cell aggregates or spheroids provide a more representative model of tumors in vivo than can be achieved with typical adherent monolayers. Such spheroids exhibit several relevant physiological characteristics including very similar morphology, the formation of cell-cell bonds, reduced proliferation rates, increased cell survival, tumor dormancy, and a hypoxic core. Applying this model to in a 3D lifestyle invasion assay offers a more physiological approach for assessing tumor invasion and providing a visual component which can be quantitated through image analysis. Upon completion of spheroid formation, the spheroid is normally embedded within an invasion matrix made up of basement membrane proteins.Vicky Dulai individually witnessed the failure of the criminal justice system to rehabilitate drug offenders. Her brother, Balraj Dulai, was in and out of jail for drug related crimes until his death at the age of 31. The goal: to improve awareness and become a resource for businesses, people, and treatment modalities that are working to increase compassion and decrease the stigma around addiction. ‘Shame and stigma can’t coexist with compassion,’ Dulai says. ‘When you can create a place for compassion, you create the area where people can in fact heal then.’ Share your thoughts on compassion in addiction treatment in the feedback below, or utilizing the hashtag #14Days.
