New Method Can Distinguish Cancer Stem Cells From Other Cells Based on Genetics

News

Cancer stem cells can replicate indefinitely, fuelling long-term cancer growth and driving relapse. Researchers have overcome the problem of cancer stem cells being difficult to isolate and study by creating a method that can be used to distinguish cancer stem cells, mature cancer cells and otherwise healthy stem cells based on their genetics and gene expression.
