    ..These data suggest plausible pathways whereby mast cells can be activated and to interact with other cells and thereby contribute to the tumorigenesis in BCC...

    BMC Cancer 8:46. 2008
    ..Both histamine and TNF-alpha are potent preformed mast cell mediators and they can act simultaneously after release from mast cells. Thus, the effect of TNF-alpha and histamine on cervical carcinoma cell lines was studied...

    ..It is chymase that appears to be capable of inducing effective detachment of viable and growing SCC cells and therefore, it may release SCC cells from a tumor leading to spreading of malignant cells...
