Evidence for the existence of cancer stem cells
Last updated by
Researchers from the University Medical Center in Utrecht have discovered a pool of stem cells thought to trigger the growth of intestinal tumors in mice.
The findings are a new incentive to create drugs that are more specifically designed to tackle such cells before they transform into malicious cancer cells.
The findings were published in the online Journal of Science titled, “Lineage Tracing Reveals Lgr5+ Stem Cell Activity in Mouse Intestinal Adenomas.”
