Researchers report our gender can determine longevity and response to treatment for glioblastoma brain cancer. The study reports male survival is determined by genes that control cell division, where as female survival is often determine by genes that regulate the ability of cancer cells to migrate to different brain areas.
Researchers have identified the 3D structure of a brain receptor that causes vomiting and nausea as a result of chemotherapy treatments for cancer. The same receptor also plays a critical role in pain perception, migraines and chronic itching.
A new study reveals distinct molecular differences in signatures of glioblastoma brain cancer between men and women. Researchers report current treatments for the brain cancer are more effective in women than in men. The findings could help to tailor treatments aimed at the different sexes and improve survival.
Researchers use focused ultrasound to safely and non-invasively open the blood-brain barrier in Alzheimer's patients.
A new study implicates the basolateral amygdala in conditioned taste aversion. The study could pave the way for treatments to curb taste aversions associated with chemotherapy and eating disorders.
Researchers report the addition of an FDA approved chemotherapy drug called hydroxyyurea to temozolomide helps to increase survival rates in animal models of glioblastoma.
A new study reports inflammation in the blood may play a role in cognitive problems following chemotherapy. Researchers report identifying the inflammatory biomarkers and reducing inflammation may prevent some of the symptoms of chemo brain.
A new drug has been cleared for human trials in patients with anaplastic astrocytoma and glioblastoma brain cancers. The drug, PAC-1, is reported to spur cancer cells to self destruct and has proven to be effective in animal models of brain cancers.
Many breast cancer survivors report cognitive problems following treatment. New research from UCSD finds breast cancer survivors who increase physical activity and embark on regular exercise experience improved mental processing.
