The Tumours Treated with Chemotherapy Survive By Ingesting Other Cells

Senescent cells feed their neighbours

Cancer cells treated with chemotherapy that enter into a non-dividing phase called senescence may still be able to boost the growth of cancer. This discovery that senescent cancer cells consume neighbouring cells suggests a mechanism by which they can persist. Ingesting cells is a way that tumours treated with chemotherapy can boost their survival.
