ABSTRACT
A new hypothesis for the origin of metastases is presented. It assumes that a cancer-transformed gene in a primary tumour is incorporated in its identical form via a virus-vector function into biologically potent recipient cells in other organs, such as stem cells, multipotent cells or cells in an early phase of division. The origin of metastases may thus possibly occur via a genetic pathway.
