A synthetic, non-toxic form of scorpion venom helps illuminate brain tumors when stimulated by a near-infrared laser. A clinical trial of the agent showed it to be safe for use in brain cancer patients.
A new, freely available computer platform creates a 3D model that brings together the macroscopic scale of tissue with the microscopic scale of individual cells. This allows the platform to realistically model brain cancer's mechanobiology while maintaining resolution power.
Researchers believe their findings could lead to new targets for brain cancer therapies.
Researchers report they might have discovered why some people are resistant to standard treatments for brain cancer, and it's in their DNA.

A new convolutional neural network that utilizes MRI brain scans can forecast genetic mutations in glioma brain tumors.
Based on a large scale meta analysis, researchers report striking differences between children's high grade gliomas, so much so that they could be split into 10 different subtypes based on different characteristics. The findings have important implications for developing new and individualized treatments.
According to researchers, combining tricyclic antidepressants with blood thinners increased tumor autophagy in mouse models of glioblastoma brain cancer.
