Cancer Stem Cells and Novel Targets for Antitumor Strategies.

Cancer stem cells (CSCs) were identified in human leukemias in landmark studies of John Dick and his colleagues. Subsequently, similar cancer stem-like cells were identified in solid tumors of the breast, colon, brain and other sites. CSCs have distinct markers and are highly tumorigenic compared to other subsets. They can differentiate into all the cell […]
