One of the most frequent gynaecological malignancies in the world and one of the main causes of cancer-based female death is ovarian cancer. About 3 out of 4 (72.4 percent) women with OC survive for at least one year following diagnosis for all forms of ovarian cancer. Five years after diagnosis, almost half (46.2 per cent) of women with OC are still living. Ovarian epithelial malignancies are mostly imported from the endometrial or fallopian tube epithelium. Ovarian cancer therapy is difficult because of a frequent recurrence of diseases and further difficult owing to chemical resistance. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) continue to get interest since they are known to withstand chemical treatment, to renovate themselves, and to re-populate the bulk cell tumour. CSCs also seem to respond quickly to environmental, immunological and pharmacological indications. The flexibility and capacity to inactivate or activate signaling pathways that support their lifespan has been and remains the difficulty in creating effective CSC-targeted treatments. The identification and comprehension of distinct ovarian CSC markers and the pathways may provide novel therapeutic possibilities that provide different therapy adjuvant choices. Here we will examine the characterization of ovarian CSC in OC and stem, isolation and enhancement of CSC and OCSCs signals and targeted therapies.
