|Abstract:||In recent years, the role of tumor-initiating cells (popularly known as cancer stem cells) in tumor development and availability of novel cancer stem cell/tumor initiating cell markers promises a new arena in understanding their role in developing novel targeted molecules. It is important to identify and understand the relevance of cancer stem cells (CSC)/tumor initiating cells (TIC) in tumor development and to design appropriate strategies for CSCs and TICs elimination, which is crucial to future cancer prevention and treatment. In this review, we attempt to define various potential markers of cancer stem cells and potential exploration as therapeutic targets for epithelial cancer prevention and treatment.|
