The cellular programs that result in a break of dormancy are not well understood.

This process is exploited in positron-emission tomography (PET) imaging as tumors will preferentially uptake a radiolabeled analog of glucose (18F-fluorodeoxyglucose [FDG]). 54 It is difficult to appreciate the survival advantage of this mechanism. One hypothesis is that the switch allows the diversion of glycolytic intermediates into other biosynthetic pathways that support the production of new cells.
