This is the third free article in the new ‘Key summaries’ series from 4open. The article offers an easy to understand description of the special issue: Disruption of homeostasis-induced signaling and crosstalk in the carcinogenesis paradigm “Epistemology of the origin of cancer” by Björn Brücher and Ijaz Jamall. This was recently published in 4open and reveals the robust evidence for their new hypothesis about the origins of most cancers.

The ‘Key summaries’ article uses non-technical language to help non-experts and other interested groups understand, in this instance, how cancer begins, develops and spreads.

“The hypothesis proposes that a chain of events underlies the vast majority of cancers... This concept will radically change how we perceive and treat cancer, and even allow us to prevent cancer in the first instance.”
