How cancer stem cells drive a deadly type of breast cancer

Researchers from Cleveland Clinic have found that cancer stem cells make use of a unique intracellular survival mechanism that makes them proliferate and spread. Cancer stem cells are at the heart of an aggressive breast tumour that cannot be treated effectively due to its biomolecular composition. With the discovery of the survival mechanism of cancer stem cells, researchers hope to have a new target for the development of medication to stop these cells from replicating themselves and spreading to other parts of the body.
