Cancer Stem Cells - A Cause for Metastasis, Drug Resistance and Recurrence

 

Some stem cells can cause disease. Cancer is caused by stem cells that transformed into a cancerous state. Alternatively, a cancer cell may transform backwards into a stem cell state. Cancer stem cells are responsible for causing metastasis, regulate drug resistance and responsible for cancer recurrence. To further understand the impact of cancer stem cells, the following short YouTube video provides a good overview.
