Study shows how cholesterol becomes dysregulated in brain cancer cells and reports the gene responsible for the dysregulation could be a potential target to help treat glioblastoma brain cancer.
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.
Scientists have long believed that glioblastoma multiforme, the most aggressive type of primary brain tumor, begins in glial cells that make up supportive tissue in the brain or in neural stem cells. Researchers found that the tumors can originate from other types of differentiated cells in the nervous system, including cortical neurons.
A new study reports researchers have identified a mechanism that aids the growth of glioblastoma brain cancer. By blocking the mechanism, researchers were able to halt the progression of the tumors.
Researchers have identified a biomarker that can help predict a patient's prognosis and response to therapies for glioblastoma brain cancer subtypes.
Researchers discover a mechanism that may underpin the progression of glioblastoma brain cancer development.
