Breast cancer metastasis is really crucial point from cancer related deaths. As cancer cells from primary tumor are travelling through blood, they hang on to blood vessel and finally they exit from blood vessel into secondary site where is extracellular matrix and/or tissue/organ. This process commonly known as extravasation. Cancer cells sometimes can be highly aggressive when it exposed to hypoxia referred low oxygen amount by activating HIF1α. This transcription factor is activated in malignant cells, normal cells and endothelial cells in blood vessel when oxygen amount decreased to certain levels and it induce several genes expression such as VEGF, LOX, Angiopoietin-like-4 etc. In this study we investigated effect of HIF1α which is hypoxia indicator on breast cancer extravasation by comparing to normal oxygen level. This study represents both anemic hypoxia physiologically and lead to understand underlying mechanism of extravasation into extracellular matrix related to low oxygen circulating through blood. In addition to HIF1α effects, dynamic perfusion mimicking blood flow was applied to determine effects on extravasation. For this purpose, lab-on-a chip device was utilized for real time visualization. In conclusion, although hypoxia is giving permission MDAMB231 to extravasate because of reshaping of vascular geometry, less extravasated cancer cells observed in matrix during hypoxia under both static and flow condition when compared to normoxic and static conditions. Moreover, it was shown that flow triggers extravasation distance in normoxia against static condition and normal breast epithelial cells extravasated away in hypoxia comparing breast cancer cells by means of flow. Keywords and Phrases: breast cancer, hypoxia, normoxia, metastasis, extravasation, microfluidics
