Researchers Find Cancer Aggression Differences in Different Types of Prostate Cells, Natural Cell Biology Reveals

Published: Feb 25, 2013

A research team made up of representatives from several cancer research centers in the United States has found that cancers that develop in the prostate of mice may be either aggressive or sluggish depending on the origin of their stem cell type. In their paper describing their findings, published in the journal Nature Cell Biology, the team describes how they found that tumors that develop in parts of the prostate that have luminal stem cells showed more aggressive tendencies than did those that developed in areas with basal type stem cells.
