A Newly Discovered Population of Tumor Cells: Fusion hybrids

In a recent study published in Science Advances, Charles E. Gast and co-workers detail the spontaneous process of cancer cell fusion with white blood cells to produce heterogenous hybrid clones in multiple biological systems, including in mice and in humans. The authors identified a new population of tumor cells that may reveal insight into a potential therapeutic target for intervention in human cancer.
