Baylor scientists find that wound response of cancer stem cells may explain chemo-resistance in bladder cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 12/04/2014) - A novel mechanism -- similar to how normal tissue stem cells respond to wounding -- might explain why bladder cancer stem cells actively contribute to chemo-resistance after multiple cycles of chemotherapy drug treatment.

Personalized vaccines could change how we fight cancer
