The longevity of breast stem cells and their daughters means that they could harbour genetic defects or damage that progress to cancer decades later, potentially shifting back the timeline of breast cancer development. The finding is also integral to identifying the 'cells of origin' of breast cancer and the ongoing quest to develop new treatments and diagnostics for breast cancer. It is usually viewed as an evolutionary process that results from the accumulation of somatic mutations in the progeny of a normal cell, leading to a selective growth advantage in the mutated cells and ultimately to uncontrolled proliferation. The open access journals are peer reviewed scholarly journals of stem cell research & therapy. The top open access journals are freely available on the public internet domain, allowing any end users to read, download, copy, distribute, prink, search or link to the full texts of the articles. These provide high quality, meticulously reviewed and rapid publication, to cater the insistent need of scientific community. The top open access journals are indexed in SCOPUS, COPERNICUS, CAS, EBSCO and ISI.
