The Cell Response of Immobilization Within a Stiff, Yet Highly Porous Silica-PEG Matrix (image) World Scientific Share Print E-Mail Caption This is a diagram depicting the cell response of immobilization within a stiff, yet highly porous silica-PEG matrix. Dormancy capable cancer cells survive in an inactive state when immobilized within the matrix meanwhile dormancy incapable cancer cells are rapidly eliminated.
