Prof Carlo Patrono - Catholic University School of Medicine, Rome, Italy

Prof Patrono speaks with ecancertv at the 2016 BACR and ECMC Joint Meeting about the action of COX1 in preventing colorectal cancer.

Platelet activation, stimulated by COX1, results in angiogenesis which supports tumoural development.

Prof Patrono also describes how platelets may form a physical barrier around tumours, and how aspirin can directly obstruct a serine residue essential for platelet function.
