Recent reports indicate that mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can fuse with cancer cells to promote cancer progression. Omental adipose-derived stromal cells (O-ASCs) are similar to MSCs, which could be recruited to the stroma in endometrial cancer. The aim of our study was to investigate whether O-ASCs can fuse with endometrial cancer cells to influence cancer cells biological characteristics. We isolated O-ASCs from patients with endometrial cancer. O-ASCs and endometrial cancer cells were labeled with different...
