Question

After reading the article entitled "Focal activation of cells by plasmon resonance assisted optical injection of signaling molecules" answer questions below:

- What is the role of mass transport processes in cancer tumor development?
What is the result of a heterogeneous and complex environment?

- Why are mechanical approaches difficult?
What is the size an cell?

- Describe in your own words the methodolgy of this paper and cellular response.
Items to include:
What forms of transport are happening and in which directions?
What are the triggers/driving forces that create the flux of the system?
Are the triggers concurrently or consecutive?
How would you write the respective conservation equation (generation, accumulation, etc.)?
How are the transport processes detected?   
Why is monitoring delivery and release important?

What is the role of mass transport processes in cancer tumor development? What is the result of a heterogeneous and complex environment?
The interaction between cells of organs and tissues (and thus the mass transport processes between the cells) determine both the maintenance of a healthy homeostasis and the development of the disease. In cancer dysfunctional cell communication pathways are linked to development of drug resistance and increased recurrence....
