Administering the chemotherapy drug temozolomide to glioblastoma brain cancer patients in the morning may enhance the cancer-fighting effects. The study demonstrates the timing of chemotherapy could have a significant impact on treatment for glioblastoma patients.
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 at MIT have developed a new drug delivering nanoparticle that is able to cross the blood-brain barrier. The nanoparticles carry two different drugs that can help shrink tumors and prevent them from growing back.
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.
Arsenic trioxide, a treatment used for acute promyelocytic leukemia, may help extend lifespan in patients with glioblastoma brain cancer, a new study reports.
Glioblastmoa brain cancer patients who received an experimental vaccines in combination with chemotherapy showed improved suitability and tolerated the treatment well, a new study reports.
A lipid nanocarrier small enough to pass the blood-brain barrier could be an effective method for delivering chemotherapy medications to help fight glioblastoma brain tumors, a new study reports.
Researchers report they might have discovered why some people are resistant to standard treatments for brain cancer, and it's in their DNA.
