The mechanisms underlying this effect have not been determined.

However, the mechanisms underlying this effect have not been determined. But now, Anil Sood and colleagues at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, data using human ovarian cancer cell lines and tumor specimens that stress hormones, especially norepinephrine and epinephrine to tumor progression to tumor progression in patients are generated with ovarian cancer. They therefore suggest that targeting stress hormones and the signaling pathways that activate that they could. Beneficial for people with cancer..

Anoikis is the process cells cells to die when the surrounding of their matrix and neighboring cells are separated. Tumor cells spread to other sites somehow escape anoikis. In the study, protected exposure of human ovarian cancer cell lines either of the stress hormones epinephrine and noradrenaline it from anoikis. Also, in a mouse model of ovarian cancer, The clinical significancetraint stress and the associated increases in norepinephrine and epinephrine protected the tumor cells from anoikis and promoted their growth.
