In addition to stem cells providing a better understanding about the biology and origins of gliomas, new therapeutic approaches have been developed based on the use of stem cells as delivery vehicles. The unique ability of stem cells to track down tumor cells makes them a very appealing therapeutic modality. This review introduces neural and mesenchymal stem cells, discusses the advances that have been made in the utilization of these stem cells as therapies and in diagnostic imaging (to track… CONTINUE READING
