    Immature Natural Killer Cells Promote Progression of Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

    Tumor samples from patients with triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) and non-TNBC revealed that increased numbers of CD56bright natural killer cells were present in TNBC tumors, and were correlated to poor overall survival in patients with TNBC.

    PVT1 Inhibition Stimulates Anti-Tumor Immunity, Prevents Metastasis, and Depletes Cancer Stem Cells in Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    Scientists identified a long noncoding RNA, termed PVT1, which was highly expressed in CSCs and correlated closely with lymph node metastasis of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.

    LncRNA XIST Regulates Breast Cancer Stem Cells by Activating Proinflammatory IL-6/STAT3 Signaling

    Investigators identified X-inactive specific transcript (XIST) as a key regulator of breast CSCs, which exhibit aldehyde dehydrogenase positive epithelial-and CD24loCD44hi mesenchymal-like phenotypes.

    Abemaciclib Drives the Therapeutic Differentiation of Acute Myeloid Leukemia Stem Cells

    To screen drugs to overcome differentiation blockade for acute myeloid leukemia, researchers conducted screening of 2040 small molecules from a library of US FDA-approved drugs and found that the cyclin-dependent kinase 4/6 inhibitor, abemaciclib, exerted high anti-leukemic activity.

    WDR3 Promotes Stem Cell-Like Properties in Prostate Cancer by Inhibiting USF2-Mediated Transcription of RASSF1A

    WD repeat domain 3 (WDR3) was negatively correlated with USF2, which was degraded by promoting ubiquitination of USF2, and USF2 interacted with promoter region-binding elements of RASSF1A to depress prostate cancer stemness and growth.

    In Vivo Detection of Circulating Tumor Cells Predicts High-Risk Features in Patients with Bladder Cancer

    Investigators validated the efficacy of in vivo detection of circulating tumor cells in bladder cancer (BC) patients. A total of 216 BC patients were enrolled in this study.
