Tumor metastasis is a significant cause of malignant cancer-related death. Therefore, inhibiting tumor metastasis is an effective means of treating malignant tumors. Increasing our understanding of the molecular mechanisms that govern tumor metastasis can reveal new anti-cancer targets. This article will discuss the breakthroughs in this area and the corresponding recent developments in anti-cancer drug discovery.

Keywords: Metastasis, anti-cancer, drug discovery, tumor, malignant, molecular mechanism.
