Multipotent mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) have strong tropism towards cancer cells, thus being tested as tools for the targeted delivery of therapeutic substances for the treatment of melanoma. However, different experimental approaches for melanoma induction and MSC treatment can have a direct impact on the outcomes. Systematic search was carried out in three databases (PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science) to include all studies, where stem cells were used as intervention for animal… CONTINUE READING
