Scientists see exciting potential in using engineered stem cells to treat cancer

Stem cells that can be engineered to take on different properties continue to show huge potential in all areas of medicine, ranging from Parkinson's disease treatments to regenerative therapies for injured tendons. Scientists adapting this technology for difficult-to-treat tumors have developed a highly efficient off-the-shelf approach that showed "profound efficacy" in mouse models of aggressive brain cancer, laying the groundwork for clinical trials.
