Researchers have developed a new method for creating custom tailored, two stage therapies for glioblastoma brain cancer.
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.
New findings could provide additional insight into the cause of glioblastoma and provide new options for personalized therapeutic treatments.
A new study reports researchers have discovered a way to enhance the effects of immunotherapy to treat glioblastoma.
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 gain inspiration for creating tiny artificial brains, that can be used for cancer research, from an ancient Japanese art of flower arranging.
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.
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.
