A new stem cell-based cancer treatment can target and kill breast cancer cells that have spread in mice. The researchers behind the work hope that, if it is shown to work in humans, the treatment could also help to prevent some of the side effects of chemotherapy. Professor Laura Machesky, an expert at Cancer Research UK’s Beatson Institute, said that the promising technique could one day be useful for treatment and imaging. The study by scientists at the University of California used stem cells that are usually found in bone marrow, but which travel to the site of cancers that have spread.
