#TomorrowsDiscoveries: Chemotherapy-Resistant Breast Cancer Stem Cells | Dr. Gregg Semenza

 

#TomorrowsDiscoveries: While chemotherapy attacks and kills 99 percent of breast cancer cells, it leaves behind chemotherapy-resistant cancer stem cells, which can later cause metastatic tumors. Dr. Gregg Semenza’s team has identified a way to overcome the resistance of cancer stem cells to chemotherapy, completely eradicating breast tumors in mice.
