Researchers in Australia have developed a drug to kill cancer stem cells.
Scientists believe that some cancers arise from a small number of aberrant cells that, like adult stem cells, have the ability to self-renew and differentiate into multiple cell types. These cells often persist in cancer patients in low numbers even following therapy, and can cause cancer relapse. Therapies that effectively kill cancer stem cells may thus hold promise for improving the treatment of cancer and increasing survival from the disease.

A teenager from the Traverse City area traveled to Grand Rapids to receive chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant to help treat his testicular cancer.
