A review that discusses the role of laminin as a regulator of cancer stem cells, in tumor progression and drug resistance. A growing body of literature suggests that laminins may act as regulators of cancer stem cells, a tumor cell subpopulation that plays an instrumental role in long-term cancer maintenance, metastasis development, and therapeutic resistance. The accumulating evidence in this emerging research area suggests that laminins represent potential therapeutic targets for anti-cancer treatments against cancer stem cells and that they may be used as predictive and prognostic markers to inform clinical management and improve patient survival.
