Analysis of Circulating Tumor Cells in Metastatic Breast Cancer Receiving First-Line Chemotherapy

Scientists examined the prognostic significance of circulating tumor cell dynamics during treatment in metastatic breast cancer patients receiving first-line chemotherapy.

Upregulation by NANOG Promotes Immune Resistance and Stem-Like Property through Hyperactivation of EGFR Signaling in Immune-Refractory Tumor Cells

The authors report that the emergence of refractory phenotypes was highly associated with an aberrant macroautophagic/autophagic state of NANOG+ tumor cells and that the autophagic phenotype arose through transcriptional induction of MAP1LC3B/LC3B by NANOG.


Extract Increases Drug-Mediated Cytotoxicity towards Cancer Stem Cells of Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Researchers investigated whether sulforaphane could enhance the chemotherapeutic effects of cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil against head and neck squamous cell carcinomasā€“cancer stem cells, and its mechanisms of action.

Signaling Pathway Determines Chemosensitivity of BMP4-Differentiated Glioma Stem Cells to Temozolomide

Scientists examined whether epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signaling affected bone morphogenic protein 4-induced differentiation of glioma stem cells and their response to the alkylating drug temozolomide.

of the Serotonin Receptor 5A Target Human Breast Tumor Initiating Cells

Researchers found that selective antagonists of 5-HT5A reduced the frequency of tumorsphere initiating cells residing in breast tumor cell lines and those of patient-derived xenografts that they established.

Full Article

of a Subpopulation of Long-Term Tumor-Initiating Cells in Colon Cancer

Based on the methods for isolating and identifying cancer stem cells and the functional features of long-term tumor-initiating cells (LT-TICs), the authors aimed to identify a subpopulation of LT-TICs.

Cell Death of Breast Cancer Stem Cells by an Endoplasmic Reticulumā€Targeting Copper(II) Complex

Investigators report a copper(II) complex containing a Schiff base ligand and a polypyridyl ligand, 4 capable of inducing immunogenic cell death in breast cancer stem cells.


Enhanced Antitumor Effect of Cisplatin in Lung Cancer via Inhibition of Cancer Stem Cells

Scientists attempted to clarify whether apigenin could improve the antitumor efficiency of cisplatin in lung cancer using cancer stem cells.

Cell Adhesion Molecule: An Anchor to Isolate Clinically Relevant Circulating Tumor Cells

The authors summarize the most significant advantages and disadvantages of using epithelial cell adhesion molecule as a marker for circulating tumor cell enrichment and its potential biological role in the metastatic cascade.
