Tumor-Stroma Interaction in Melanoma

Tumor microenvironment (TME) has an active contribution to tumor development and cancer progression. This extremely complex system is composed of multiple cell types, such as fibroblasts and infiltrating immune cells, and structural extracellular matrix (ECM), which is mainly composed of hyaluronan in many cancers. Tumor and stromal cells are in constant interaction with each other and together they remodel TME favourable for cancer spreading.
