A study shows that postoperative radiation improves outcomes for children with ependymoma, even those with historically poor prognoses and the very young.
Researchers report a new 'anti-radiation' medication can help protect astronauts' brains from the cosmic radiation of deep space.
Researchers have identified a specific rearrangement involving the NF2 gene that appears to cause radiation induced meningiomas. The Nature Communication study reports this mutation could be a basis for why many long term pediatric cancer survivors go on to develop brain tumors later in life.
Researchers report microvesicle injections can restore cognition following radiation treatments without adverse side effects.
Exposure to radiation appears to increase the risk of developing meningioma brain cancer in people under the age of 30, a new study reports.
A new study reports rats which have been exposed to high energy particles, simulating conditions astronauts would face during long-term deep space missions, showed lapses in attention and slower reaction times.
Researchers suggest neural stem cells could be resistant to radiation. The stem cells could be roused from a hibernation-like state in order to reproduce and generate new cells which have the ability to migrate, replace injured cells and restore lost function.
