  1. Every cell that can move will do the same.
    Macrophages ( normal cells ) are larger than malignant cells yet they are one of the first types of cells that arrive at the site of inflammation by squeezing through capillary endothelium.
    On the other hand, some types of cancer such as basal cell carcinoma or adamantinomas can’t and will not move at all ( they are locally malignant ).
    Many of anticancer drugs act by inhibiting DNA synthesis and repair and they are already used for some types of highly dividing cancer cells, methotrexate is an old example of this family of drugs.
    The footage is great in this video, but the information are somewhat vague and misleading.
