How to assess drug resistance in cancer stem cells

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Banks of genetically characterized cancer stem cells (CSCs) isolated from individual patients and grown as spheroids offer an invaluable approach to identify genetic determinants of drug resistance versus sensitivity, and to study new stem cell-directed therapies. Here, we describe our standardized procedure for in vitro drug screening on colorectal CSCs, taking irinotecan as an example.
