|Title:||Lung Cancer Desmoplasia|
As shown here, lung cancer is associated with a vast stromal desmoplastic reaction (the "neighborhood") in which the connective tissue, associated with the tumor, thickens similarly to scars. Cancer is in red; cell nuclei in cyan; stroma/desmoplasia in green; and an active stroma-specific marker in purple.
