Costanzo-Garvey and colleagues studied the impact of direct neutrophil-prostate cancer interactions on prostate cancer growth. They unveiled a role of bone-resident neutrophils in inhibition of cancer growth. They also concluded that bone metastatic prostate cancer can progress via evasion of neutrophil-mediated killing. They suggest that an enhancement of neutrophil phototoxicity in bone could be a target on new bone metastatic prostate cancer therapies.
Nanolive’s 3D Cell Explorer was used in combination with Incucyte S3 live-cell Analysis for live cell imaging visualization of the apoptotic inducing role of neutrophils in prostate cancer (Figure 1).
