Just as the body’s normal stem cells renew and sustain organs and tissue, cancer stem cells do the same for tumors. Large cap drugmaker AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV) is taking the lead in developing drugs to go after cancer stem cells, and long-term investors could enjoy the payoff.
All tumor cells are not alike
Shrinking or removing a tumor without eradicating the cancer stem cells is like cutting off a weed at the soil line without removing the root. Cancer stem cells are literally the root of tumors, supporting their growth and spread.
The theory of cancer stem cells has been around for decades, but only recently have tools become available to allow scientists to prove the theorycorrect. Scientists now have discovered that a small subset of tumor cells are uniquely capable of fueling tumor growth, while the majority are essentially bystanders. Only the stem cells are capable of fully replicating tumors indefinitely, supporting a sustained the attack on the body.
