Cancer stem cells and Future therapies

The cancer stem cell concept has important implications for cancer therapy. If cancer stem cells are responsible for maintaining tumour growth, then eliminating these cells would eventually cure the patient.There is no definitive proof in favour of either theory of cancer growth. However, an increasing amount of evidence suggests that the cancer stem cell theory holds true in some cases. The first evidence in favour of cancer stem cells came from studies of human leukaemia. Researchers found that only a subset of leukaemic cells can cause leukaemia when transplanted into a healthy body, the key characteristic of cancer stem cells.

Since that discovery, many researchers have found cells with cancer stem cell characteristics in a great variety of human and mouse cancers, including breast, brain, skin, prostate and colonic cancers. In some types of tumour the cancer stem cells are rare, for example in colon cancer. In other types of cancer, such as melanoma, a very large number of the tumour cells have cancer stem cell characteristics.
