    Combined Proteomics and CRISPR‒Cas9 Screens in PDX Identify ADAM10 As Essential for Leukemia In Vivo

    Investigators attempted to identify responsible surface proteins, and performed deep proteome profiling on minute numbers of dormant patient-derived xenograft leukemia stem cells isolated from mice.

    Leukemic Progenitor Compartment Serves as a Prognostic Measure of Cancer Stemness in Patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia

    Researchers confirmed that the presence of leukemic stem cells detected through in vivo xenograft transplantation was associated with poor survival.

    Understanding and Overcoming Immunosuppression Shaped by Cancer Stem Cells

    The authors discuss the current understanding of CSC-mediated immune evasion and provides a prospective view on how researchers can better understand and overcome the intrinsic immune privilege of CSCs and the extrinsic immune-suppressive microenvironment shaped by them.

    Co-Targeting Autophagy and NRF2 Signaling Triggers Mitochondrial Superoxide to Sensitize Oral Cancer Stem Cells for Cisplatin-Induced Apoptosis

    Scientists demonstrated that cisplatin treatment enriches the CSCs population by increasing autophagosome formation and speeding up autophagosome-lysosome fusion by recruiting RAB7 to autolysosomes.

    Sequentially Degradable Hydrogel-Microsphere Loaded with Doxorubicin and Pioglitazone Synergistically Inhibits Cancer Stemness of Osteosarcoma

    Researchers reported a treatment strategy for osteosarcoma using hydrogel−microspheres complex mainly composed of collagenase and PLGA microspheres carrying Pioglitazone and Doxorubicin.

    Targeting ITGB4/SOX2-Driven Lung Cancer Stem Cells Using Proteasome Inhibitors

    CSCs isolated from lung squamous cell carcinoma patients were found to be resistant to cisplatin but knocking down ITGB4 or SOX2 sensitized them to cisplatin. Carfilzomib synergized with cisplatin and suppressed CSC growth by inhibiting ITGB4 and SOX2 expression.

    Cancer Stem Cells Promote Lymph Nodes Metastasis of Breast Cancer by Reprogramming Tumor Microenvironment

    The authors unraveled how CSCs reprogramed the tumor immune microenvironment (TIME) to facilitate lymph node metastasis. Utilizing single-cell RNA sequencing, they profiled TIME in primary cancer and corresponding metastatic lymph node samples from patients at their institution.

    Cross Talk Between Tumor Stemness and Microenvironment for Prognosis and Immunotherapy of Uveal Melanoma

    Scientists observed that mDNAsi was significantly linked with overall survival (OS) time of uveal melanoma (UVM), but no association was discovered between mRNAsi and OS. Stratification analysis indicated that the prognostic value of mDNAsi was only limited in subtype D of UVM.

    Isoliensinine Augments the Therapeutic Potential of Paclitaxel in Multidrug-Resistant Colon Cancer Stem Cells and Induced Mitochondria-Mediated Cell Death

    Researchers evaluated the chemo-sensitizing potential of the combinatorial regimen of isoliensinine (ISO) and Paclitaxcel on multidrug-resistant-HCT-15 cells to reduce the dose requirement of both ISO and Paclitaxcel.

    Crosstalk Between Autophagy and CSCs: Molecular Mechanisms and Translational Implications

    It has been found that autophagy can contribute to the maintenance of CSC stemness, facilitate the tumor cells adapt to changes in the microenvironment, and promote tumor survival, whereas in some other cases autophagy acts as an important process involved in the deprivation of CSC stemness.

    FDA Removes Partial Clinical Hold on TakeAim Leukemia Trial of Emavusertib

    The FDA has lifted a partial clinical hold on the Phase I/II TakeAim Leukemia trial of emavusertib as monotherapy and in combination with azacytidine and venetoclax for the treatment of patients with relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia or high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome.
