Metastatic cancer cells cannot be completely erased by using the traditional surgical or chemo radiotherapy, and relapse may occur as a common things in this. On the other hand the application of stem cell based therapy gain its promise to combat with cancers and removal in a complete manner. Actually, stem cells are those type of cells that can grow at a faster rate and possess self-renewal property. Actually, it act as a novel delivery platform which target both primary and metastatic tumour foci. Besides this they are employed as a nano particle carrier not only give its therapeutic effects but also give relief from treatment side effects. Like chemotherapy may lead to destroy lots of immune cells and other good cells, where supplementation of stem cell may lead to regeneration of those immune cells inside body system. Still challenges like treatment durability and tumorigenesis require further study to improve it’s therapeutic performance and acceptability. This whole review focus on the recent development in anticancer stem cell based therapy and show it’s advantage, potential risks and challenging opportunities.
