Researchers have identified a mechanism that allows cancer cells to respond and grow rapidly when levels of sugar in the blood rise, according to a news release. The finding may help to explain why people who develop conditions in which they have chronically high sugar levels in their blood, such as obesity, also have an increased risk of developing certain types of cancer.

The findings were published Nov. 17 in the journal eLife, by Susumu Hirabayashi, who leads the Metabolism and Cell Growth group at the MRC Clinical Sciences Centre at Imperial College London, and Ross Cagan of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, in New York.
