Cancer Stem Cells: A Trend Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) January 20, 2014
Follow us on LinkedIn – Cancer Stem Cells (CSCs) are the cells within a tumor that possess the capability of self-renewal, driving tumorigenesis. Fuelled by the need for more effective treatment options and growing focus of the medical community to develop drugs and therapies that target tumor roots, research in the field of Cancer Stem Cells (CSCs) is attracting increased investments. Stem cells also known as progenitor cells, represent cells that are capable of regenerating malignant tumor cells and thus are responsible for the spread of cancer. As a key cause for tumor recurrence, metastasis, and resistance, cancer stem cells are therefore an important theme for R&D, especially as a drug target. The coming years are forecast to witness the development of novel drugs that target cancer stem cells (CSCs). Research efforts concerning CSCs would be focused on development of in vitro and in vivo methods for identification of CSCs and related biomarkers that would help understand the principles of tumour development and metastasis. Growing demand for effective and accurate cancer detection methodologies against the backdrop of rising cancer incidence is forecast to boost market prospects in the coming years.
