Esophageal cancers driven by 'marginal gain' rather than speed

Scientists have shown that unexpectedly, esophageal cancer cells do not divide faster than their normal neighbors. But unlike normal cells, the tumor cells produce slightly more dividing daughter cells than non-dividing ones, forming a tumor. The study could lead to the development of new treatments for cancers that do not respond to current therapies which target fast-growing cells.
