However, our knowledge still appears too limited for formulation of recommendations for the general population or for particular populations at risk of specific diseases.Evidence for a reduction of disease risk by flavonoids was considered “possible” for cardiovascular diseases and “insufficient” for cancers in a recent report from the World Health Organization (5).Therefore, our a ECM model system is well suited to unveil the role of biophysical and biochemical determinants of physiologically relevant cell migration phenomena.Research on the effects of dietary polyphenols on human health has developed considerably in the past 10 y.

In vitro, the migration behavior of single preosteoblastic cells within hydrogels of varying stiffness and susceptibilities to degradation by matrix metalloproteases was assessed by time-lapse microscopy.Findings from ethnographic interviews demonstrated that healthcare communication with physicians is difficult for patients.While caregivers and patients describe a deep engagement in lung cancer care, they expressed a concurrent lack of understanding of their prognosis and outcomes of treatment.Migration behavior was seen to be strongly dependent on matrix stiffness, with two regimes identified: a nonproteolytic migration mode dominating at relatively low matrix stiffness and proteolytic migration at higher stiffness.Subsequent in vivo experiments revealed a similar stiffness dependence of matrix remodeling, albeit less sensitive to the matrix metalloprotease sensitivity.
