Melanoma Secrete Amyloid Beta to Colonize the Brain

Metastatic melanoma cells recovered from human brains and grown in tissue cultures make roughly three times as much amyloid beta as cancer cells that have spread to other parts of the body, a new study finds. The study shows treatment of mouse models of melanoma brain metastasis with a pharmacological inhibitor that reduces levels of amyloid beta in the brain, decreases the size of brain melanoma metastases by about half.
