Stem cell & cancer

Cancer cells (found inside tumors or medicine cancers) that possess characteristics related to traditional stem cells, specifically the pliability to provide rise to any or all cell sorts found in an exceedingly specific cancer sample. CSCs area unit thus tumorigenic (tumor-forming), maybe in distinction to alternative non-tumorigenic cancer cells. CSCs could generate tumors through the somatic cell processes of self-renewal and differentiation into multiple cell sorts. Such cells area unit hypothesized to continue tumors as a definite population and cause relapse and metastasis by giving rise to new tumors. Thus, development of specific therapies targeted at CSCs holds hope for improvement of survival and quality of lifetime of cancer patients, particularly for patients with pathologic process sickness.
