- Re: Cancer: A "Stem-cell" disease? S. M., Tu // Journal of Urological Surgery;Dec2015, Vol. 2 Issue 4, p207
The article discusses the relationship between stem cells and cancer, the etiopathogenesis of cancer and the malignant potential of every stem cell.
- Distinguishing features. Goymer, Patrick // Nature Reviews Cancer;May2006, Vol. 6 Issue 5, p342
The article discusses the findings of two studies which show that deletion of Pten tumor-suppressor gene has opposite effects on normal hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) and leukemic stem cells. Authors of the two studies investigated the effects of deleting Pten in stem cells using an inducible...

- Early signs of trouble ahead. Flintoft, Louisa // Nature Reviews Genetics;Feb2007, Vol. 8 Issue 2, p90
The article discusses the relation between cancer development and stem-cell properties. Two recent studies by researchers reveal that Epigenetic marks laid in the normal development influence certain genes to cancer promoting DNA-methylation. Both the study groups state that pre-marking of...
- Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences: New findings in breast cancer. // Biomedical Market Newsletter;4/21/2012, Vol. 21, p1
The article focuses on a research which found that luminal-likebreast cancer cells with no detectable stem cell qualities can generate larger tumors than their basal-like counterparts, a finding which could impact future breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Human embryonic stem cells are important for the understanding of biologic mechanisms and their potential for treatment, and for toxicology studies. Mesenchymal stem cells can produce a good environment with chemical factors and signals to serve as anti-apoptotic, immune modulator and...
- Multiple carcinosarcomas of the kidney: A case report and review of the literature. HAKAN OZTURK // Molecular & Clinical Oncology;2015, Vol. 3 Issue 1, p212
Carcinosarcomas are biphasic tumors comprising epithelial and mesenchymal components. Primary carcinosarcoma of the kidney is extremely uncommon and accounts for <1% of all malignant renal tumors. Primary carcinosarcoma of the kidney generally occurs after the age of 60 and the majority of the...
- Cancer stem cell markers in breast neoplasias: their relevance and distribution in distinct molecular subtypes. Schmitt, Fernando; Ricardo, Sara; Vieira, André; Dionísio, Maria; Paredes, Joana // Virchows Archiv;Jun2012, Vol. 460 Issue 6, p545
The identification and characterization of cancer stem cells might lead to more effective control of neoplastic disease, by directing therapies to the most aggressive cells. For that reason, the identification of cancer stem cells (CSCs) in breast tumours is one of the priorities in breast...
