Abstract

BIOLOGY OF CANCER The Evolving Science of Cancer Stem Cells http://www.cancer.gov/ncicancerbulletin/072710/page4 The theory of the cancer stem cell has generated excitement and optimism in cancer research over the last decade. Biologically, these cells are distinct from the other cells that form the bulk of a tumor in that they can self-perpetuate and produce progenitor cells, the way that traditional stem cells do. However, to date, the stem cell model has not been adequately tested in most cancers and findings reported to date are inconclusive.
