A new synthetic peptide has the potential to deliver medications through the blood brain barrier.
Researchers at The University of Nottingham have identified three sets of genetic markers that could potentially pave the way for...
Researchers have shown that infrared and Raman spectroscopy – coupled with statistical analysis – can be used to tell the difference between normal brain tissue and the different tumor types that may arise in this tissue, based on its individual biochemical-cell ‘fingerprint’.
According to researchers, targeting multiple angiogenesis pathways simultaneously could help overcome the resistance to anti-angiogenic treatment developed by glioblastoma brain cancer.
Exposure to radiation appears to increase the risk of developing meningioma brain cancer in people under the age of 30, a new study reports.
Asthma causes T cells to induce lung inflammation but prevents the growth of brain tumors. Reprogramming T cells in patients with brain cancer to act like T cells in those with asthma may help to curb the growth of tumors.
Researchers discover the mTOR pathway is highly active in many cases of pediatric low-grade glioma. Blocking the pathway lead to a decreased growth of the brain tumors.
A new study reports adults who survived posterior fossa brain tumors as children have lower working memory performance than healthy adults.
Glioblastoma can mimic the normal repair of white matter in the brain, causing the tumor to become less malignant. Additionally, a drug commonly prescribed for asthma can help suppress glioblastoma growth in mouse models.
