Chronic Circadian Disruption Modulates Breast Cancer Stemness and Immune Microenvironment to Drive Metastasis in Mice

Investigators observed that circadian disruption significantly increased cancer-cell dissemination and lung metastasis. It also enhanced the stemness and tumor-initiating potential of tumor cells and created an immunosuppressive shift in the tumor microenvironment.
