Over the past few decades, our knowledge about origins and biological mechanisms responsible for driving cancer has changed dramatically. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are responsible for the tumour initiation, metastasis and relapse. Most researchers are now focusing on CSCs identification, isolation and elimination.  These results will provide a hopeful outlook in cancer therapy and would translate into clinically useful treatments against cancer.
