- Targeting Cancer Stem Cell Lines as a New Treatment of Human Cancer. Giuffrida, Domenica; Rogers, Ian M. // Recent Patents on Anti-Cancer Drug Discovery;Nov2010, Vol. 5 Issue 3, p205
Many studies have demonstrated that most cancers are clonal and are maintained by a cancer stem cell. Cancer stem cells have been identified in blood, breast, brain, lungs, gastrointestinal, prostate and ovarian cancer. Under normal homeostasis tissue specific stem cell division would be under...
- Liver Cancer Stem Cells as an Important Target in Liver Cancer Therapies. Gang-Ming Zou // Anti-Cancer Agents in Medicinal Chemistry;2010, Vol. 10 Issue 2, p172
Hepatic cancer is one of most common cause of cancer-related death. Hepato-epithelial cancers are believed to originate from the malignant transformation of liver-resident stem/progenitor cells. Liver cancer stem cells have been characterized recently and the phenotype of liver cancer stem cells...
- Research Highlights. // Nature Medicine;Mar2009, Vol. 15 Issue 3, p256
The article offers news briefs related to science researches. New findings suggest that cells thought to seed tumor growth, cancer stem cells, might resist radiation treatment on cancer because they deflect damage from reactive oxygen species. Researchers have found out that calcium channels...

- Mouse Models for Cancer Stem Cell Research. Le Cheng; Ramesh, Anirudh V.; Flesken-Nikitin, Andrea; Choi, Jinhyang; Nikitin, Alexander Yu. // Toxicologic Pathology;Jan2010, Vol. 38 Issue 1, p62
The cancer stem cell concept assumes that cancers are mainly sustained by a small pool of neoplastic cells, known as cancer stem cells or tumor initiating cells, which are able to reproduce themselves and produce phenotypically heterogeneous cells with lesser tumorigenic potential. Cancer stem...

The article reports on the research findings which revealed that targeting the cancer stem cells alone could not totally fight cancer.
- Cancer Stem Cells - Therapeutic Boon! Shrihari, T. G. // Journal of Cancer Science & Therapy;2011, Vol. 3 Issue 8, p197
Cancer stem cells (CSC) are recently proposed to be the cancer initiating cells responsible for tumorigenesis and contribute to cancer resistance. Like normal stem cells, cancer stem cells should be rare, quiescent and capable of self renewing & maintaining tumor growth and heterogeneity....
