The Growing Value of Cancer Associated Fibroblasts or CAFS

Balancing Supply and Demand

There is reciprocal communication between Cancer Associated Fibroblasts (CAFs) and tumor cells. They are now recognized as playing a key role in promoting the malignant process and blocking immune surveillance  They are becoming increasing important in Cancer Drug Discovery Programs.

Their growing value is making it harder for us to source resected tumors. We have been receiving advanced orders from clients who need to insure they have a stock. We have ordered tumors for the below CAFs and will be shipping to those who have place advance orders by the end of November.
