Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Traditional surgery or chemotherapy are not sufficient to remove cancer completely. Researchers are trying to find out individual pathways for targeting tumor niches with precise drug amounts to eradicate cancer. The latest framework of stem cell therapy focuses on an optimistic instrument for treating cancer. Modified stem cells are utilized as therapeutic carriers with oncolytic viruses, nanoparticles, exosomes at particular tumor niches in the human body. However, therapeutic application of stem cell therapy can be improved by targeting malignancy and screening of anticancer medications. Additionally, mesenchymal stem cells, neural stem cells and hematopoietic stem cells transplantation have possible remedial viability in different cancer treatment. This review article highlights the use of different types of stem cells as therapeutic carriers and examines the future role of this therapy in various cancers.
