The article presents a research study on two camps formed in the breast cancer stem cell. Topics discussed include the possibility of the growth of cancers from stem cells, cancer stem cell, and the hierarchy in normal cells. Also discussed is the presence of rare, immature, and organ and tissue-specific stem cells in all organs.

Enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) is frequently expressed in human IBC and...

    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...

    Aims CD44, CD24 and ALDH1 are the most consistently used biomarkers to identify and characterise the breast cancer stem cell (CSC) phenotype. However, most studies performed until now analysed samples of invasive ductal carcinomas of no special type (IDC-NST). Therefore, prevalence and clinical...

    Breast cancers with a basal-like gene signature are primarily triple-negative, frequently metastatic, and carry a poor prognosis. Basal-like breast cancers are enriched for markers of breast cancer stem cells as well as markers of epithelial- mesenchymal transition (EMT). While EMT is generally...
