Thus, it is important to understand the characteristics and mechanisms by which CSCs display resistance to therapeutic agents.

Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are a class of pluripotent cells that have been observed in most types of solid and hematologic cancers

Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are a class of pluripotent cells that have been observed in most types of solid and hematologic cancers. CSCs have been shown in numerous cancer models to be involved in tumor development, cell proliferation, and metastatic dissemination, while possessing a capacity for sustained self-renewal. CSCs, which typically represent a small proportion of total cells of a given tumor, also exhibit resistance to chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Major changes in cancer diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation occurred in the early 2000s. EUROCARE-5 assesses their effect on cancer survival in 29 European countries. Methods In this retrospective observational study, we analysed data from 107 cancer registries for more than 10 million patients with cancer diagnosed up to 2007 and followed up to 2008. Interpretation The major advances in cancer management that occurred up to 2007 seem to have resulted in improved survival in Europe.

Stem cell transplants are procedures that restore blood-forming stem cells in cancer patients who have had theirs destroyed by very high doses of chemotherapy or radiation therapy

Stem cell transplants are procedures that restore blood-forming stem cells in cancer patients who have had theirs destroyed by very high doses of chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Learn about the types of transplants and side effects that may occur. Stem cell transplants help restore blood-forming stem cells in people who have had theirs destroyed by certain cancer treatments. Stem cell transplants are procedures that restore blood-forming stem cells in people who have had theirs destroyed by the very high doses of chemotherapy or radiation therapy that are used to treat certain cancers.

Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are cancer cells (found within tumors or hematological cancers) that possess characteristics associated with normal stem cells.

Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are cancer cells (found within tumors or hematological cancers) that possess characteristics associated with normal stem cells, specifically the ability to give rise to all cell types found in a particular cancer sample. CSCs are therefore tumorigenic (tumor-forming), perhaps in contrast to other non-tumorigenic cancer cells. CSCs may generate tumors through the stem cell processes of self-renewal and differentiation into multiple cell types

In a typical stem cell transplant for cancer very high doses of chemo are used, sometimes along with radiation therapy . This treatment also kills the stem cells in the bone marrow

In a typical stem cell transplant for cancer very high doses of chemo are used, sometimes along with radiation therapy, to try to kill all the cancer cells. This treatment also kills the stem cells in the bone marrow. Soon after treatment, stem cells are given to replace those that were destroyed. These stem cells are given into a vein, much like a blood transfusion. Over time they settle in the bone marrow and begin to grow and make healthy blood cells.

If cancer stem cells are intrinsically more resistant to treatment (such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy) than other cells in the tumor, then treatment should increase the percentage of cancer stem cells relative to pretreatment levels

If cancer stem cells are intrinsically more resistant to treatment (such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy) than other cells in the tumor, then treatment should increase the percentage of cancer stem cells relative to pretreatment levels. Conversely, if all cells are similarly sensitive to treatment, then the relative percentages of tumorigenic and non- tumorigenic cells should not change as a tumor shrinks.

These cells are relatively resistant to radiation and chemotherapy, and their complete elimination from the tumor mass determines therapeutic success," said lead investigator Frank Pajonk, . an assistant professor at the University of California, Los Angeles.

This book presents the research on cancer stem cells including mesenchymal stem cells and their role in tumour progression.
