UPDATE IN RADIOLOGY Stem cells: Implications in the development of brain tumors


Stem cells are characterized by their capacity for self-renewal, for giving rise to new cells in specific tissues, and for maintaining this capacity throughout the entire life of their hosts. Stem cells are pluripotent and maintain continuous production of neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes. Stem cells in brain tumors also proliferate, undergo self… (More)
