Pancreatic Cancer Stem Cells May Define Tumor Stroma Characteristics and Recurrence Patterns in Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma patients who underwent surgical resection between 01/2012–06/2014 were identified. CD44 and epithelial-specific antigen expression was assessed by immunohistochemistry.

Epigenetic Remodeling Hydrogel Patches for Multidrug‐Resistant Triple‐Negative Breast Cancer

A tumor‐microenvironment‐responsive hydrogel patch was designed to modulate the plasticity of tumor‐initiating cells in triple‐negative breast cancer, which is insensitive to hormone‐ and HER2‐targeting.

Silencing PTEN in the Fallopian Tube Promotes Enrichment of Cancer Stem Cell-Like Function through Loss of PAX2

Loss of PTEN in fallopian tube epithelium led to the enrichment of CSC markers such as LGR5, WNT4, ALDH1, CD44.

Breast Cancer as an Example of Tumor Heterogeneity and Tumor Cell Plasticity during Malignant Progression

Investigators used breast cancer as an example of the origins of tumor heterogeneity and of tumor cell plasticity, as well as considering interclonal cooperativity and cell plasticity as sources of cancer cell heterogeneity.

Tideglusib Suppresses Stem-Cell-Like Features and Progression of Osteosarcoma by Inhibiting GSK-3β/NOTCH1 Signaling

The authors found that tideglusib (TID) markedly reduced the cell viability of different osteosarcoma cell lines. Cell cycle arrest distributed in G2/M was markedly up-regulated in TID-incubated osteosarcoma cells through enhancing p21 expression levels.
