Therapeutic potential of differentiation in cancer and normal stem cells.


Therapeutic potential of differentiation in cancer and normal stem cells.

Marcha, Juan Antonio et al.

Nova Biomedical Books


116 pages




The 11 chapters collected here compare cancer cells to embryonic stem cells and to adult tissue stem cells and review the current status of research in cancer stem cells. Topics include: molecular control of embryonic stem cell renewal, normal and cancer stem cell niches, therapeutic potential of mesenchymal stem cell differentiation, and cancer differentiating agents in stem cell-based therapy, among others. Characteristic of this publisher, significant errors in translation and mechanics appear throughout, and the preface is an awkward amalgamation of the articles' abstracts. Credentials for the contributors are not provided.
