Summary: In order to find a way to increase breast cancer patient prognosis, scientists need to understand cell behavior and metastasis. One of the possible tools in the efficient diagnosis is sialic acid-molecularly imprinted polymers (SA-MIPs). The aim of this paper was to study the effects of SA-MIPs on cell morphology and behavior. Using HoloMonitor M4 M. Patel with colleagues show SA-MIP can change cell motility (slower down MCF-7 cells and increase MDAMB231 cell speed), cell morphology for both cell lines.
